What Are Your Reading Habits?

November 3, 2016

I've been auto-tagged again. Lol. Bloggers sekarang ni nakal betul buat auto-tag macam ni. Last time, it was Fatin/Fatina (hahaha suddenly I'm confused how to call you dear) and now Siqah. :D Saja nak ubah tajuk tag, tu yang jadi macam persoalan tu. 

Okay, let's do this!

1. Do you have certain place at home for reading?

Hmm, not really I think? Although I prefer reading while lying on my bed, I can still read on the sofa, on the swing so far that I can recall. 

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Neither. I use sticker post-it bookmark. Seriously, I don't know the real name of it, but it simply looks like this :)

The bookmark?

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

Oh yea, I prefer non-fiction though, like travelogue, motivation, real life journey (not biography okay) etc, so I basically cannot read the book in one go. I need time to digest what I've read so far and reflect myself on it.

This was the last book I lent my late brother. ^_^

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

Depends on the book. Sometimes, the story is thought-provoking enough that my forehead sweat a lot while reading. I need water to recover. :) And yeah, I read books in the cafe few times, so I do eat and drink while reading. 

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

Instrumental musics, yes. 

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

Depends. Sometimes the book I read is complicated enough to digest, so I do alternate with other books as well - the lighter one. 

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

I'm flexible. I can read in the car, in the train - even though this makes me dizzy. Hmm, cafes are included as well, also at the park while watching the ducks swimming in the river. At home, on my bed will be the ultimate comfort.

On a train ride :D

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

I think most people read silently, no?

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

Hmmm, I am not sure about this. Hoho. Both I think?

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

Break a little. Few books have small spaces between the spine and the contents. So, if I keep it like new, I don't feel comfortable to read it. 

11. Do you write in your books?

Yes and no. Maybe because of the type of books I read, I prefer writing down something on how do I feel with certain contents. That is the reason for a yes. It was before the existence of post-it stickers that I use as bookmark. Now, I will simply put the removable stickers on the page so that I can refer it again. And most of my own personal thought, either I tweet about it or I write it in my Samsung notes. I don't have planner, favorite notebook whatsoever. Haha.

I think I started writing in my books when I know I can write notes in my Quran, like this. T_T

Going for a hike tomorrow, I hope the weather will be on our side. :)

Good morning, Malaysia.

p/s - Anyway, may I know who is the reader from Seongnam, Kyonggi-do?

Hradec Kralove, Czech
