Diary of a bookworm
I came across this fun post from Jo Tracey and thought I’d join in. I absolutely love getting absorbed in a book, sometimes ‘lost’ in a book and I do my utmost to read a bit of my current book every day. I’ve recently rekindled this habit and I love it!
So here we go:
Do you have a specific place for reading?
I’ll read anywhere comfortable but on an evening, preferably a weekend, cosied-up with a drink on the sofa, footstool out. 🙂
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
A bookmark our 8 year old made for me. (I’m not a 2 book person so this works fine.)
Do you eat or drink whilst reading?
Quite often. Depending on the mood (and book) or season, it’s either herbal tea, hot choc and snacks and/or chocolate!
Music or TV whilst reading?
Rarely the TV because it’s too distracting. Maybe some light music low in the background.
One book at a time or several?
Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?
I can read anywhere but tend to vere to people-watching if I’m in a public place which obviously isn’t ideal for hardcore reading!
Read out loud or silently?
Silently. But I still read to our 8 yo and it’s strangely nice to hear the pronunciation of the words and brings it more to life!
Break the spine or keep it like new?
Break it in, enjoy it, savour it!
Do you write in books?
What books are you reading now?
‘How to Stop Time’ by Matt Haig. And loving it!
What is your all-time favourite book?
I might’ve known this question was coming up and I can never answer it… though I’ve just finished ‘The Secret of Nightingale Wood’ which was February’s read in the Bookish Mamas facebook group
. I read it very quickly, which is rare for me and I loved the theme for various reasons.
I also love Pride and Prejudice.
Give up or read on if you don’t enjoy the book?
I’ve been known to give up. In fact I decided to read, instead of watch, Game of Thrones. The first one was okay but I gave up on the second one after a break and I couldn’t get into it at all.
Would you lend your books?
