Currently Reading Book Tag

26 Dec

It’s been such a long time since I did a tag! I can’t even remember the last one I did. Priyasha tagged me in this one a few weeks ago and I have the time (aka I’m a bit short on material) now so it’s a great time to share! If you haven’t been to her page before, check it out! She’s a faithful WWW Wednesday follower as well.

This tag is originally created by Charly Reynhorse and you can watch the video here.

How many books do you usually read at once?
I’m a big fan of reading multiple books at once. I usually have a minimum of three going. However, I use different formats. I’ll have a physical book, an audiobook, and an ebook. I sometimes have up to five. I often have an audiobook on CD for the car and a different one on my phone for running and house chores. I also might have two physical books going if I have to stop reading one to finish a book club pick. I don’t think I’ve ever had more than five.

If you are reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books?
Like I said, it depends on where I am. If I have the physical book, I’ll read that over an ebook but I don’t really have to decide other than that.

Do you ever switch bookmarks while you are partway through a book?
No. I cycle through my bookmarks in a stack and I take whatever’s on the top of the stack.

Where do you keep the book(s) you are currently reading?
On my bedside table.

How long do you typically read in one setting?
For an ebook, it’s usually my lunch break or the wait at the doctor’s office. An audiobook could be a long time, depending on how far I’m running or how many cookies I’m baking. For a physical book, it’s usually pretty short, about a half hour at most. I get bad back pain for anything longer.

Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?
I used to leave them on but now I religiously take them off.

What position do you mainly use to read?
Supine. It’s most comfortable for my neck. If I get uncomfortable, I’ll lay on my side to keep reading.

Do you take the book you are currently reading with you everywhere?
No, that’s what I have the ebook for. My physical book stays at home.

How often do you update your Goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading?
I used to do it daily! At my old job, I’d read a physical book during lunch and update Goodreads when I got back to my desk. That’s been over two years. Now I’m bad about it and really only update when I start and finish.

Woo! There we are. I’ve decided to tag the last few people who commented on WWW Wednesday last week but anyone is welcome to join! I couldn’t tag all of you. 🙂
