get to know me book tag

This month I will be tackling NaNoWriMo (you can keep up on that journey by checking here every Monday this month!) Now, because of that, I won’t have much time to read. Instead of doing my usual book reviews on Friday, I will be posting different tags that I have come across or have been tagged in.

I was nominated by Daniella over at Reading with Daniella, go check out her blog; it’s really awesome! I was interested in doing the Get to Know Me tag before I was tagged in it, but being tagged gives me more incentive to actually answer all these questions!

So here are some things to know about me:

Books

Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?:

I can stop reading anytime, but I prefer to stop at a new chapter. If not, I tend to reread a lot before I realize where I last read.

Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?:

Not usually. I get too distracted if I do.

Can you read listening to music or watching TV?:

No. Again, I get too distracted.

One book at a time, or several at once?:

One book at a time.

Reading at home or everywhere?:

At home.

Reading out loud or silently in your head?:

Silently in my head.

Do you read ahead, or skip pages?:

What’s the point of reading if you’re going to skip pages or read ahead?!

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?:

Keep it new, unless I bought it used and it’s already broken.

Do you write books, or just read them?:

I write and read them! See my published work here!
