Suntag: The Currently-Reading Book Tag

I saw this on Meggy’s blog, Chocolate’n’Waffles, and decided to have a go!

The Currently Reading Book Tag was created by Charly Reynhorse.

How many books do you usually read at once?

I am definitely a one-book-at-a-time faithful reader! I have tried to read more than one in the past but it isn’t for me! Regardless, my Kindle is with me all the time, and if for any reason it isn’t, I have the app on my phone too. If I’m reading a physical copy, then that has to go with me instead! I am also not an audio book listener. If I am reading, I actually have to read. I am only just catching on with Podcasts, for goodness sake!

If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch to reading the other book (do you read a certain amount of pages in each?)

Nope. Can’t do it! Actually, there have been a few occasions, if I am reading a non fiction book, I can read a fiction along side it, but the non fiction has its set time. Fiction is for me to disappear into as and when!

Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re part way through a book?

I try not to. I have a couple of special ones that, when reading a physical book, stay with me through the whole book. It so frustrates me if I lose a bookmark!

Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?

My Kindle, as I said before, is with me, pretty much all the time. It is by my bedside, goes upstairs and downstairs with me in the house, it takes trips with me in my handbag for those moments I have spare, to read.

What time of day do you spend the most time reading?

Right now, there is no rhyme nor reason to when I read. It can be at any time in the day, but when I lived my old normal, I would read, without fail, every night.

How long do you typically read for in one go?

Very much dependant on what time I have available, how tired I am, and what I am doing. I can read for minutes at a time, when snatching spare time, or a whole day, if given the chance!

Do you read hard covers with the dust jacket on or off?

To be honest, I don’t tend to buy hardbacks, but if I have, the dustjacket stays on.

Which position do you mainly use to read?

However I am at the time! I love to curl up on my sofa with a blanket and hot drink, and curl up with a bookk. Equally, I can be stretched out in my bed, or, I do, on occasion, read as I am walking!

Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?

Absolutely! If there is a moment spare, where I don’t have to interact with anyone, the book comes out!

How often do you update your progress in the book you’re currently reading on Goodreads?

I don’t update progress on it at all. I log when I start it, and then when I finish it, and am writing a review.

I’m tagging everyone who feels like doing it!

    Hi Ritu. I like paperbacks best, not bothered about hardbacks. I’m struggling with reading at the moment so I am focusing on short reads, poetry and the like. My energy is going on other things – writing, blogging, and spending time with family.

      It is hard. I’m definitely not as focussed as I usually am.
      In my head I feel like I should be doing all sorts of things because of this sudden abundance of time… But unless your head is in it, truly… It’s not the same 😢

    I agree with that “update progress” on Goodreads sentiment – who has the time for that? Never truly found it worthwhile.

    I must admit, I have more than one book on the go at a time.
