Rane's Reading Habits

 

 

Do you have a certain place in your home for reading?

I tend to like to curl up in my bed or big lazy boy chair

 

 

Bookmark or random piece of paper? 

 Both, my bookmarks tend to disappear and reappear and I grab piece of paper when in need.

 

 

Can you  just stop reading or do you have to stop read after a chapter / certain number of pages?

 I can stop then and there but I try to stop on a new chapter. 

 

 

 

Multitasking: music or TV while reading? Music, sometimes I can get the perfect song to match the book.

 

 

One book at a time or several at once? 

 One book at a time, although I have been known to skip between two books if one  slows down.

 

 

Reading at home or everywhere? Anywhere and everywhere

 

 

Reading out loud or silently in your head? Silently 

 

 

Do you read ahead or even skip pages? Again it depends on the book, sometimes there is just a big info dump that I skim or skip. Or what happens to the asshat character in the end *grins*

 

 

Barking the spine or keeping it like new?

Like new.

 

Do you write in your books? Nope Nope

 

Romance Bingo 2017- B-I-N-G-O!

Romance Bingo 2017- Gothic Romance

A little bit of a ghost story, with hidden treasures and suspense and a soft romance I was going for another square with The Property of a Gentleman but this turned out surprising well for my Gothic square although it was a bit slow and tedious on details in some parts.
