The Reading Tag!!

This tag has been taken from the lovely Jaq from Lazy Days Beauty

Do you have a certain place for reading at home? 
I have no particular place to read as I tend to just sit wherever I feel comfortable and read whilst its quiet. I'm usually found reading on the sofa in the lounge or if its sunny outside.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Quite often it's a random piece of paper or a folded corner! I have to many books for bookmarks! 

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or a certain number of pages?
If its a book for Uni I can stop whenever. However, if its a book I'm reading for leisure then I have to finish the chapter or it bugs the hell out of me!

Do you eat or drink when reading?
All the time! I'm terrible for it!

Do you watch TV or listen to music when reading?
I can read with the TV on, and I have read on the beach with music on, but I prefer to read in silence.

One book at a time or several at once?
Several at once, doing an English Literature degree means I'm always reading multiple books. I've got about 3 on the go at the moment: 1 paperback for leisure, 1 kindle book for leisure and 1 kindle book for Uni in September. 

Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere. I will read anywhere but most often at the moment its at home. 

Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head, I don't think I could bare to listen to my own voice! 

Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?
Never!!! This is the cardinal sin! It's like putting a film on and fast forwarding to the last 10 minutes. 

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I try to keep it new for as long as possible but really its inevitable that the spine is going to break at some point! But I do like to keep my books in good condition.

Do you write in your books?
Only for uni and then its only in pencil. Leisure books never get written on. 

What are you currently reading?
I'm currently reading Maze Runner by James Dashner for leisure and Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy for Uni. Both are being read on my rather snazzy new Kindle Fire HD which I am in love with. 

If you feel like doing this tag please let me know via twitter @bambisblogs!! I would love to read it!!
