Questionnaire for Readers
Tags Sunday, February 8, 2015
I found this at Awesome Book Assessment and decided to make it my very first book tag!
1. Do you have a specific place for reading?
I usually put my legs up on the couch and read there. When I'm at my house, I rarely read anywhere else.
2. Boomark or random piece of paper?
Neither, actually. I read most of my books on my Kindle, because I can usually find a wider range of books on Amazon (Sri Lankan bookshops suck at variety), so I can't lose my page there. If I'm reading a physical book, I just keep the page number in mind. If I forget it, I just flick through the pages until I find a scene I recognize.
3. Can you just stop anywhere in a book or do you have to finish the chapter?
I can stop anywhere. Sometimes, chapters end in cliff-hangers, so it's actually safer to end in the mid-chapter.
4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
Guilty as charged. Although I sometimes don't if I particularly love the cover, and I definitely do not if it's borrowed.
5. Music or TV when reading?
I tend to tune out most background noises when reading, so it wouldn't make a difference,
6. One book at a time or several?
Ha. I answered this on my Follow Friday. Go check it out here.
7. Reading at home or elsewhere?
I read anywhere if I can just find a comfortable place to sit.
8. Read out loud or silently?
Silently, definitely. That way, I know the mood and atmosphere of the scene. I'm just not talented enough to put expression into my reading aloud.
9. Do you read ahead or skip pages?
Only if the book is boring and nothing seems to be happening.
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
Keeping it like new! When I was younger, I used to break the spine, but growing up has somehow increased my perception of the value of a pretty paperback.
11. Do you write in your books?
I hear some people do this, like making little comments on the margin, but it's not a habit I have. Also, in our culture, books are supposed to be treated with respect. (Not that they shouldn't generally, but we're a little particular)
12. Who are you tagging?
