My turn...

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

On the love seat in my den or in bed.


2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Bookmarks....unintentionally have collected quite a few over the years


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

I prefer the chapter break, but if I cannot stay awake at all I will just mark it wherever.


4. Do you eat or drink while read?

Prefer iced tea if I drink while reading.


5. Multitasking: music or TV while reading?

TV is ok on low volume.


6. One book at a time or several at once?

Anywhere from one to as many as four in the past.  No issue whatsoever....


7. Reading at home or everywhere?

Anywhere.....best at home, though.


8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently. Would feel weird otherwise.


9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?



10. Barking the spine or keeping it like new?

Don't even think about this, but some end up barked pretty good and I don't even realize I'm doing it.


11. Do you write in your books?

Only at beginning to ID my inventory number for my library.
