I was inspired by fellow blogger Ritu at Butismileanyway to do this Book Lover’s tag. Like Ritu, I love to read and I adore books! 📚 My friend and I even set up our own Facebook book club Books, Glorious Books, and we’re always open to new members.
Do you have a specific place for reading?
I can read anywhere but my favourite places are my local library in Hollyhill and my bed. I just love my bed and my bedside locker has a mountain of books on it!
Bookmarks or random pieces of paper?
I have a collection of lots of different Harry Potter bookmarks 🔖 but I am sometimes forced to turn down a page! Sorry, Mr/ Ms Librarian!
Can you just stop anywhere or must it be at the end of the chapter?
I try to stop at the end of a chapter, otherwise I’m making up my own chapter ending in my head!
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Yes, to the drink – I love a nice glass of red wine 🍷 with a juicy horror. No, to food. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m the messiest eater going! My books would be destroyed!
Music or TV while reading?
I like to read while my husband watches soccer, the noise doesn’t bother me when I’m on book world.
One book at a time or several?
I usually have at least three books on the go – a Kindle book for on the go or late night weekend reading, a physical library book and an audio book for my drive home from work. I know, that’s a lot of books!! 😀
Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?
The library, at home, a cafe, the car – I’m happy anywhere with a book!
Read out loudly or silently?
Read out loud in my head!
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
Never!! But I do tend to speed read!
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I’m not the most careful person, so generally the spine is broken. But my books were handled with clumsy loving hands.
Do you write in your books?
Nope! The only writing I like in my most special books are dedications from the author, like the wonderful dedication from Andrea Hayes in my Life Goals Journal.
I won’t nominate anyone specific, but I do urge you to have a go at the tag if you are a book lover too, just for the fun of it!
