Currently Reading Book Tag

Good Morning guys,

I haven’t been nominated for this book tag but I’ve seen quite a few over the past couple of days and thought, what the heck!

Here’s the link to the original tag from Youtube.

So let’s get started…

My current read at the moment is Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris.

My thoughts: I’m currently on page 253 and there’s about 50 pages to go. This book started off with doing a bad job at trying to get my attention as I found it dragged out for the first 80/90 pages. It’s started to pick up now and I’m finding it easier to read but not all that interesting. I don’t think I’ll be reading the rest of the sequel but I will finish this book just to find out what mystery (hopefully) gets revelled.

How many books do you normally read at once?

It’s usually just one, however over this past year I have read a physical book and read via iBooks as well, but I found that if I was more interested in one I’d read that whole book and not touch the other until I had finished, so really just one.

If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books?

I pretty much answered this question in my first answer, by only really reading the book that I’m more interested in and until I have finished that, I’ll then go back to the other.

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

I only use one bookmark at a time, I would love to have a huge collection of pretty bookmarks, like the ones that I see over bookstagram posts, but for the time being I keep to one.

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

You’ll either find my current books I’m reading on my bedside table or they’ll be in my rucksack, as I take that everywhere with me. So if I have a spare minute anywhere, I’ll pick out my book and read a few pages.

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

Definitely in the evenings, as that’s when I can wind down and have a proper read. I get a half hour lunch at work so I try my best to read and eat at the same time, but sometimes it doesn’t work out! I’ll take myself down to the local Starbucks some evenings and enjoy a coffee and read in there for a couple of hours. (At this time of year it’s the Eggnog Lattes that I enjoy the most, but I have to say the Fudge Hot Chocolate is a winner too!)

How long do you typically read in one sitting?

It depends on how tired I am, how engrossed I am in the book and how much time I have to pick up a book, normally it’ll be anything between twenty minutes to just over an hour.

Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?

I have to take the dust jacket off now, CONFESSION: I accidentally ripped one of my dust jackets before, it must’ve been when I put it back into my rucksack and I placed it at a bad angle or something swiped past it and it ripped. So yes, I take the dust jacket off of a hardback book when I’m reading one as I don’t want anymore to get ruined!

What position do you mainly use to read?

lying down in bed, either on my side or on my back. I like to feel cosy and make myself at home when i’m in a cafe so I’d sit with my legs crossed over like you do in assembly.

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

I try and take it everywhere with me, sometimes if I don’t have a book with me it feels like a part of me is missing!

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

I try to do it every evening when I’ve finished reading as much as I can that day but I have forgotten here and there to do so.

Well, thank you to everyone who read my Currently Reading Book Tag post! I especially like this tag as it has interesting questions where you’ll find it somebody’s reading habits! I’m not entirely sure I should tag anyone for this as I wasn’t tagged myself, so I’ll tag everybody who is interested in this tag and wishes to do it!

Thank you,

Claire ☺️

  1. I didn’t know that you could do a tag on your own, I mean without anybody tagging you! I would love to do this on my blog. So, I just answer the same questions as yours? Is that how it works?

    1. I’m not entirely sure myself but I’m sure it’s not a problem as I have seen it done before with other bloggers 🙂 Yeah, I completely forgot to tag the original video into my post! I’ve just updated it now. But yes, I’m sure just by answering the same questions and tagging the original video in to your post that should be fine 🙂
