Reading Habits Book Tag

Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday to you all ❤

Yesterday was a crazy busy day with my mom. We went to Jerusalem, in order to grab some meds for my mom and after over 13 hours out and most of it in a car, I came home exhausted. it’s been a long time since I was this dead tired.

Anyways… I saw this great book tag over at Chanelle and I had to do this cute tag 🙂 If you don’t know who is Chanelle or her amazing blog chanelleheley go visit her blog and say hello, she would love that. Her blog is about beauty, life, books and so much more. I get inspired everytime I pop my head over her blog and I am sure you will too ❤

Now, onto the tag:

Bookmarks or random pieces of papers?

Well,  I am more of a bookmark kinda of a girl but I will use random paper or anything if I need to. however, I will also write a note on my phone which page I am in and not use bookmarks at all 😉

Stop reading randomly or after a chapter/certain amount of pages?

I love stopping after I hit a new chapter but if I am tired I will stop after the end of a paragraph or if the sentence end at the end of the page I will stop there.

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Not really, but I do most of my reading on the couch, so maybe I do 😀

Do you eat or drink whilst reading?

In most cases no, I am too afraid to spill something on the book, but sometimes I will drink something, and when I do I will put the book far from me and then have a sip of my drink and get back to my reading. I will never eat though whilst reading.

Reading

Multitasking: Music or TV when reading?

Nope. I don’t mind when my Ralfi (my husband) is watching TV but I love to read the book in quiet.

One book at a time or several?

Okay, this one is a bit hard. In most cases, I love reading one book at a time. However, sometimes I’m in a mood where I can’t read just one book, lol. Like the last two months, I’ve read 3 books all at the same times, hehe. This month, I can’t even think of doing that.

Reading at home or everywhere?

I read a lot of Ebooks while my mom was in the hospital through an app on my phone, but I love reading at home and feel comfortable.

Reading out loud or silently?

LOL,  there are parts of the book where it has a more fast dialog or fights, I love reading out loud but in most cases, I love reading in silence. I don’t listen to many audiobooks, I guess that really shows that I love reading the book on my own and silently 🙂

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

OMG, NOOOO! It even hurts to write the question, lol. I hate breaking the spine. 99.9% of my books look new even though I read them a lot of them more than 6-30 times, hehe. All my books are paperbacks and there are a few books that I broke the spine and it hurt seeing them there, so I try to never do that (yeah I know, I sound crazy, hehe).

Do you write in your books?

OMG! What a monster thought of these cruel questions, the horror, lol. Nope. Never.

 

That is all for this tag 😀

The Reading Habits Tag

typewriter

I have been nominated to do this great tag by Zach Chopchinski. If you don’t know who Zack is, go visit his site and while you’re there don’t forget to check out his book 😀

The Rules:

The rules are simple, answer a bunch of questions about your reading habits and then nominate a bunch of people to do the same. Don’t forget to tag the person who nominated you!

OK! And now for the questions:

You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?

I love this question. I usually go for the next book from my already loved authors, but I also love to try the some of the new books that people liked (4-5 stars) on Goodreads. My TBR list is ever growing and it is getting very hard to choose and even though I am a fast reader (when I can sit down and read) I choose 2 books from my favorite authors and I choose 2 books that people recommended me. I will say that it also depends on my mood at that time and that is why I mostly have about 5-6 books on my ‘Currently Reading’ list.

You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or commit?

Wow, this is a hard one. I will say that if I read a book review, I will try to read the book till the end (I will try a few times as well), but if it’s a book I read for myself I will just leave it. I may try to come back to it later, but if the book is just not for me I will put it aside forever (there are books that I just can’t connect with).

The end of the year is coming and you’re so close yet so far away from your Goodreads challenge. Do you quit or commit?

I have a Goodreads challenge (I think, lol), but I am really not that into it. So I think it will not change much if I am closer to the end of the year. I read for fun and nothing more!

The covers of a series you love DO. NOT. MATCH. How do you cope?

This picture is from Deviantart (click to go to the site).

Okay, this is one of the things I hate the most. I love the unity of my covers and sizes of the books and I just can’t stand that it suddenly change in such a horrible way (sorry for that dramatic tone). This is one of my biggest pet peeves in books 😀

Everyone and their mother loves a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?

Well, I am not much a book talker 😀 But if I have a very strong feeling about a book I would share them with my hubby, my mom, and my friend.

You’re reading a book and you’re about to start crying in public. How do you deal?

I almost never read outside, lol. I am really obsessed with keeping my books neat, clean and perfect looking, lol. But if by chance I would be outside reading a book and I was about to cry, I think I will shed some tears and run to the bathroom or to my car 😀

A sequel to a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel. Will you re-read the book? Skip the sequel? Try to find a summary on Goodreads? Cry in frustration?

Okay, this is an easy one 😀 As I have a small (or big) memory problem I tend to start reading all the books in that series and then the new book ❤

You don’t want ANYONE borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people “nope” when they ask?

People in my life know this from the very moment they know me, Galit doesn’t share books 😀 I am not polite in this and I am not nice, lol.

You’ve picked up and put down five different books in the past month. How do you get over the reading slump?

I mostly read for fun, but sometimes there are many books coming out and I know I would love, but I am not in the right mood to read. What gets me out of that “reading slump” is going back to that one book that I loooved so much and who changed something in me. I re-read it slowly and enjoy it again, this opens the door for more books to be read.

I just recently had this reading slump (too much stress and was too busy), so I re-read The Only City Left by Andy Goldman.

There are so many new books coming out that you are dying to read! How many do you actually buy?

Sadly my financial situation does not let me buy all the books I want to buy, lol, so I just pick the one from my favorite authors or the one that was highly recommended.

After you’ve bought a new book you want to get to, how long do they sit on your shelf until you actually read them?

Mostly just a few days, but if I am too busy, it will sit there just a few weeks but no more than a month.

Alright, Now For The Nominees:
