Tag Tuesday – Currently reading tag

I have been a little rushed off my feet lately so haven’t had time to sit down and write a review in a long time (though I do have a couple coming up in the next few days). So instead of stressing out and throwing a review together I have decided to do this quick tag that I can fill in the answers between zoom meetings!

I am not sure who created this tag or where I found it. I the questions siting in my draft posts for over a year so I am probably resurrecting a long dead tag at this point but the questions seem fun. If you do know who created this tag please let me know so I can add credit to the post.

1. How many books do you usually read at once?

Anywhere form 2 to 6. It really depends on the mood I am in. Currently I am a bit slumpy so I am flitting from book to book , right now I am reading these three:

2. How do you decide when to switch between multiple reads?

Again it is all to do with mood. I tend to try to read from different genres or very different settings/writing styles. For example, I am working on finishing the Court of Miracles which I have as an ARC and it requires a lot of my attention which I have been struggling with so when I can no longer give it full attention I switch to City of Bones which is a re-read and a little fluffier of a read for me. I have Descendant of the Crane as an audiobook so I can keep reading while working.

3. Do you ever switch bookmarks partially through a book?

Yes, usually because I take my current bookmark out put it down somewhere in the house, wander around the house with my book and forget where I put my bookmark and have to grab a new one from my bookmark pot.

4. Where do you keep the books you are currently reading?

TBR cart, TBR shelf in the living room, TBR shelf in my library, random shelf in my library, on the couch in my library, on the side table in my library, on my desk, on the side table bhind my desk, on the coffee table, under the coffee table, on the arm of the couch, on my reading chair, on the little shelve that houses the remotes beside the couch, on the side table in the hall, on my beside table, on my window seat, in my handbag (not so much lately) in my work bag (again not so much lately) …… basically my house. I spend a lot of time looking for where I put them down I guess that why I read so many at a time, I keep loosing my current read and starting a new one.

5. What time of day do you read the most?

It used to be on my commute which was 1.5 hours each way by train but since lockdown I do all my reading at night. It really changed my reading habits as I just dont have that dedicated time anymore. As this will probably be my life for the next few months as even with stuff opening back up I will be remaining work from home, I think I need to start setting up a more structured reading schedule.

6. How long do you typically read in one session?

Again I used to read for at least 3 hours a day 1.5 hours each way but since lockdown I tend to read for 2/3 hours a night. But that depends if we watch TV or play games then its just a few pages before bed. I really need to get back on a schedule.

7. Do you read hardbacks with the dust jackets off?

Off. I put them on a high shelf to keep them safe from the cats and it means I can get my grease paws all over the hardcover without worrying about how it looks as once you put the dust jacket back on it looks all lovely and new again.

8. What position do you mainly use to read?

I am usually in my reading chair or on the couch with my book in my lap but my readaing chair is large enough dor me to lie on my back with my legs over the arm and I do like reading like that too (usually with my kindle as its lighter to hold and doesn’t hurt as much if I drop it on my face)

9. Do you take your current read with you everywhere you go?

Usually yes I do take a current read with me everywhere, but as we haven’t been going anywhere for a few months, no. I do walk around the house reading though.

10. How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress?

I try to remember and do it often but usually I get distracted and forget and only end up updating when I start and finish a book.
