This is something I’ve never done before but is something I’ve been eager to try and that is to do one of the hundreds of tags which have been created by so many amazing people in the book community and so I decided to do a tag for this post.
After going through a long list of tags available I decided to go with the Currently Reading Tag. I found this tag on Zezee with Books blog which was created by Charly Reynhorse and decided to give it a shot. So here’s my take on this tag.
How many books do you usually read at once?
I normally try my best to read one book at one given time simply because I’ve tried reading multiple books at once and it did not work out for me. I just felt pressured and even though I was in the middle of multiple books I was still reading one book at a time, so since then I’ve done my best to start and finish only one book at one time as that helps me finish books faster.
If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide to switch to reading the other book? (Do you read a certain amount of pages in each?)
At first I thought I wouldn’t be able to answer this question but the more I thought about it, I realized that there are two books currently which I’m reading on the back burner—they’re not my primary reads but I do make progress in them whenever I finish one of my primary reads—and for those two books, I read one chapter of one book before switching to the other book and reading one chapter of that book; so that’s how I work between books.
Where do you keep the book you’re currently reading?
I keep it on my nightstand or on my study table and once I finish the book I put it back on the shelf.
What time of day do you spend the most time reading?
If I could, I would spend all twenty four hours reading but since I do have other things I need to do I prefer to do all my important stuff during the day so I can be done by late afternoon or evening and then I spend all my time reading. So mostly during the evening I read.
How long do you typically read for in one go?
It depends on how much I’m invested in the book. If I feel lukewarm about a certain book I’ll read for an hour or so, but if I’m really invested in a book, then I’ll easily spend five to six hours continuously reading without a care in the world.
Do you read hard covers with the dust jacket on or off?
I read it with the dust jacket on and I don’t know why. It’s not something I ever considered. I just know that I love my books and their covers in pristine condition and I guess that’s why I prefer keeping the dust jacket on because if I remove it then the dust jacket itself might get damaged in some way.
Which position do you mainly use to read?
I mainly sit with my back against the headboard, or against the arm of the couch or against the wall, with my knees propped up as a backrest for my books.
Do you take the book you’re currently reading everywhere you go?
Yes! I take the book I’m currently reading literally everywhere I go.
How often do you update your progress in the book you’re currently reading on Goodreads?
I don’t update my progress on Goodreads. I only select the currently reading option and once I finish reading the book I update the book to I’m finished and shelve it.
Who would you like to tag?
Anyone and everyone who likes to read and wants to do this tag!
