I’m *almost* caught up on the tags I was tagged in a million years ago! Whitney from Whit Reads Lit tagged me in this tag back in February. I’ve been reading a lot lately, so this should be interesting!
How many books do you usually read at once?
I actually wrote a post all about this lately, because I used to only read one book at a time, but in the last few years I’ve been intentionally opening up to the idea of reading more and more books at once. At that time I was reading 5 or 6 at any given time, but since school started back up I’m down to 4.
- Main fiction read
- Middle-grade book
- An anti-racist non-fiction title
- A chapter book I’m reading aloud to my five-year-old
How do you decide when to switch between multiple reads?
Hm, well I don’t really have to “decide”. I read one chapter a day to my five-year-old and one chapter a day of my anti-racist book. I read 50ish pages a day of my middle-grade book. Everything else is for my “main” read. 🙂
Do you ever switch bookmarks partway through a book?
Um, I only have one bookmark. The only reason I can see myself doing that would be if I lost my bookmark in the middle of the book. Which, since I’m using mostly trash for bookmarks right now, has happened a couple of times, lol.
What time of day do you read the most?
On the weekends or during vacation I’ll read all day long, but during the week I mostly read in the evening after work.
How long do you typically read in one session?
As a mother of two it is very unusual for me to get a large chunk of time to read without being interrupted. Mostly I have to read in short bursts, half an hour or less. I can read for longer after the kids go to bed, but not much longer because I go to bed early.
Do you read hardcovers with the dust jacket off?
I never used to, but lately I have been almost always reading sans-jacket. The jackets just seem to fall off when I’m reading! I guess a looser fitting dust jacket is just the style right now? But I read a lot of library books, so obviously I can’t take the dust jacket off them, lol.
What position do you mainly use to read?
I don’t understand this question. Do people read in yoga positions? I usually just … sit.
Do you take your current read with you everywhere you go?
Yes! I have a compartment in my purse that a paperback fits in perfectly, and most hardbacks will fit too. It’s perfect for taking my book with me everywhere! But even if I’m reading a big ol’ book that won’t fit, I’ll still take it with me and leave it in the car.
How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress.
When I finish a book only. I don’t do the thing where I keep track of how many pages I’ve read and update daily or hourly. I feel like nobody I know on Goodreads cares? I usually update my progress and write a review within a day or so of finishing the book, and that’s about it.
