I have found myself with more free time to read at the moment, and although it started off with a slight lack of concentration, I’m really enjoying my books again. So this is the perfect tag for me at this time.
I saw this tag on Meggy’s site and thought it was a fun tag to do. I haven’t done one in ages. You can read Meggy’s answers HERE!
The Currently Reading Book Tag was created by Charly Reynhorse.
How many books do you usually read at once?
I usually have 2 books on the go. One in paperback and one on my kindle. But they have to be completely different stories and usually different genres.
If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch to reading the other book (do you read a certain amount of pages in each?)
I read my paperback when I have more time to sit and relax with my book.
I read or listen to my kindle when I have less concentration and when I’m doing other things, like ironing, driving, chopping veg etc.
Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re part way through a book?
Not usually part way through a book, but usually after I finish a book. Part of the joy of choosing a new book also includes choosing a new bookmark. Here are some of my favourite bookmarks.
Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?
My paperback is usually on my bedside table, unless I’m reading it in which case it’s in my hands. 😁. My kindle doesn’t have a “place”. That could be found anywhere from my bedside table to sofa to in my bag.
This is what I’m reading at the moment.
What time of day do you spend the most time reading?
This varies depending on what’s going on in my life at the time. During this lock time period, I’ve been reading a little in the morning with a cuppa when I wake. A little as an afternoon break and then sometimes in the evening. When life becomes more ” normal ” again though, this will change.
How long do you typically read for in one go?
Again depends on what’s going on at the time. At the moment this can range from 5 minutes to 2 hours. I guess a usual time would be about half an hour before I take a break to make another cuppa or do something else.
Do you read hard covers with the dust jacket on or off?
Always on! I know some people like to keep them in perfect condition, but my books are most enjoyed when reading them. So always jackets on so I can keep looking back at the cover if I choose to. The cover always relays more of the story the more you read of a book.
Which position do you mainly use to read?
Either sitting up in bed or on the comfy chair in my living room. I used to be able to read lying down in bed…… now my reading glasses don’t allow that!
Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?
No. I don’t take my book to work with me as I don’t have any free time to read it there. If I’m going to most other places then usually yes. This could be either my kindle or a paperback.
How often do you update your progress in the book you’re currently reading on Goodreads?
Only when I start it and when I finish it. Although I often forget to do this and have a catch up process of what I’ve read and am reading.
