Saw this on  Ritu’s  blog.  Thought I’d play.

Do you have a specific place for reading?

These days I mostly read in bed, late into the night.  Weekend reading is outside with Isla, on her trampoline.  She is, I’m not.

Bookmarks or random pieces of paper?

Train tickets.  And no dog-eared pages.

Can you just stop anywhere or must it be at the end of the chapter?

I’d prefer it was the end of a chapter, but I don’t make a thing out of it.  Neil makes a thing out of it.

Do you eat or drink while reading?

Day time reading, when it happens, is with coffee.  Night reading is sometimes with cider and popcorn.

Music or TV while reading?

Could be.

One book at a time or several?

Too many,  Not enough.

Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?

My favourite time of day is reading to Isla before she goes to sleep.  When she does, I read by Kindlelight.  At home.  In bed.  With Neil snoring beside me.  I can also now read in the car, which is useful for road-trips, with Neil hopefully not snoring beside me.

Read out loudly or silently?

Aloud to Isla.  And Neil, if something strikes me as funny, which happens a lot.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?

I don’t skip.  But I sometimes read the last page first.  Sit down.

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

Spine clear, but read.  Figure that out.

Do you write in your books?  

Wrote notes in all my Uni text books.

What about you?  Any more bookish questions?
