Currently Reading Book Tag

Well hello there! Welcome back! πŸ™‚ How was your week ? Mine has been pretty busy, what with celebrating Thanksgiving and lots of school work (what else is new :D). But it’s been good, and I’m starting to get really excited for Christmas! I suppose I should warn you all that I am slightly crazy when comes to Christmas. πŸ˜€ It’s my absolute favourite holiday, and I love to milk it for all it is worth. So bring it on – Thanksgiving is over, it’s time for Christmas!! πŸ˜€

So this week I was tagged by the lovely Ruqs over at Many Things Bookish to do the ‘Currently Reading Book’ tag. Thank you, Ruqs! πŸ™‚ So without further ado, let’s get on to the questions:

  • How many books do you usually read at once? –Β It really depends. I normally have at least one school-related book and one pleasure-related book going at one time. But I often have more than that, so that’s just the bare minimum really. Right now I have probably about 4-5 books that I’m reading.
  • If you are reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books? –Β Well ideally I read the books that I need to read for school first, leaving the pleasure books for when I’ve finished everything else. But that’s more of an ideal than anything else. πŸ˜€ I’ll normally switch between books either when I need to due to school deadlines, or when I’ve gotten tired of one and fancy a taste of the other. But to be honest, I read so fast that often I’ll have finished the book before I have a chance to put it down and read something else.
  • Do you ever switch bookmarks while you are partway through a book? –Β Is it terrible that I don’t really use bookmarks? I tend to either read so fast that I’ll finish the book in one sitting πŸ˜€ or I’ll just try to remember what chapter I’m on. Or, in a pinch I’ll grab a pencil or a piece of paper and stick it in so I don’t lose my place. But I would say 80% of the time I don’t use bookmarks.
  • Where do you keep the book(s) you are currently reading? –Β On my desk. I have a lined up stack of books I’m currently reading, are on my TBR, or I’ve just finished sitting in the corner. When I’m feeling organised, I put my school-related books in their related desk drawers. But I’ve got more books sitting on my desk than inside my desk. πŸ˜€
  • What time of day do you spend the most time reading? –Β Haha, I think the question would be better of as ‘what time of day don’t you spend reading?’ πŸ˜€ It varies hugely, depending on my schedule and what work I have to do. Ideally I’d do my school-related reading during the day, and my pleasure reading at night, but again, I’m afraid that’s just an ideal… I’ll grab any spare moment I can to squeeze in reading!
  • How long do you typically read in one sitting? –Β Again, it really varies. I can spend anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours straight reading. Last night I read for 90 minutes straight. It was lovely. πŸ˜€ But yeah, it really just depends on where and when I can find the time.
  • Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off? – Hmmm… Thinking about it, I don’t actually read that many hardbacks. But when I do, I think I just leave them on – unless they’re hampering my reading (aka. falling off). Then I take them off.
  • What position do you mainly use to read? –Β I’ve probably used pretty much every position you can think of. πŸ˜€ Lying face down/face up on my bed, curled up on the couch, perched in my desk chair, sitting on the trampoline, while walking, while vacuuming, up in a tree, hiding in a closet, upside down, in a car – you get the picture. πŸ˜€ But though my reading positions vary widely, I’d have to say the first three mentioned above are the ones I use the most.
  • Do you take the book you are currently reading with you everywhere? –Β If I know I’ll be in a position to read, then yes. So if I know I’m going to be in the car for 40 minutes, or babysitting for an evening, then yes I’ll definitely bring it. But if I’m driving 5 minutes to church, or popping out to the store, then I wouldn’t. It’s just not worth it to bring a book when you know you won’t be able to read it. πŸ˜€
  • How often do you update your Goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading? –Β I’m afraid I must confess that I do not use Goodreads. :/ I know of it, but as of yet, I have not jumped into using it. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it though, so perhaps I’ll make the plunge one day! πŸ˜€

And I’m going to tag Bethany from The Treasure Within, Bethany from Behind the Pen, and Lydia from Noveltea.

I hope you enjoyed reading my answers to the questions! πŸ™‚

See you back here next Saturday! πŸ˜‰

  1. Awesome! I wish I could afford to read for 90 mins straight on a weekday without feeling somewhat guilty about neglected schoolwork πŸ˜€ Or on a weekend too, for that matter. IGCSEs!!


    1. Haha, I know what that feels like. I actually was reading a book for school, so that’s how I could justify it. πŸ˜€ It was an enjoyable book, but it was still for school. πŸ˜› Plus it was at 10 pm, and my brain was so tired from all my other work that’s all I could face doing. So I read and thoroughly enjoyed it! πŸ˜€ I can’t wait for summer where I can read to my heart’s content with out any school pressure!


      1. Aww, none of my school books can possibly be classed as enjoyable lol! Lucky you! Haha, I was reading Six of Crows at 12am and my brain was tired and a few moments later I was completely lost as to what was going on!πŸ˜‚I know right, and so many months to go!


      2. Ugg, it’s so annoying when you’re desperate to read but your brain is too tired to get the words your reading! πŸ˜€ I’ve stayed up way too late too many times this year trying to get my pleasure reading in, lol. πŸ˜€

        Liked by 1 person

  2. Yeah!! I LOVE reading too! Spent 70 minutes reading last night! πŸ˜‰ And YES!!! Christmas is my favorite holiday too! πŸ˜‰ Praying for snow now!! Tell everyone hello!
