I’m doing this tag after reading Zuky’s post. I thought it would be a fun post to do… And I’d love to know your habits as well!
As I already said in another post, I mostly read on the train. But my favorite time to read is Saturday and Sunday mornings. I can’t read at night. At all. I can’t even watch movies or tv shows, as I will probably fall asleep. No matter how much I love the book, sleep will win. I need to do something more active like talking or playing a board game.
I love bookmarks. When I was younger, I didn’t use them and I could quickly remember where I was (?), and now I can’t possibly understand it. Was I smarter when I was a kid? Oh, and I lose way too many bookmarks so I’m always looking for more. They’re a great gift 😉
BEGINNINGS & ENDS
Beginnings are my favorite part (and of course, brilliant endings). but I struggle with the middle and it’s usually when I know if a book will become one of my favorites or not. I want to read a story that captivates me no matter what, and that’s why I love mysteries and thrillers, as they usually hold my interest all the way through.
I had never done this before, but since I started blogging, I’ve had to skim-read sometimes. If I’m around 50% and I’m not enjoying the book as much as I hoped, or it feels slow-paced, I will skip some pages and see if it gets better. I don’t feel bad, I can’t love them all, but I still want to know what happens. #sorrynotsorry
If I’m not feeling a book by the time I reach 20%, I will abandon it and move on to another. It has happened frequently this year, but I don’t have the time to read something that I’m not enjoying at all. Sometimes I feel like I would’ve liked the book had I read it in another moment, that it’s just not the right time.
KINDLE & PHYSICAL
On the train, I usually read with my Kindle, mainly because physical books are heavier and take up more space. So I might be reading a different book at home than the one I carry with me to work. HOWEVER, sometimes I’m so addicted that I’m unable to leave it at home.
What about you?
