How many books do you usually read at once?

I try to read just one at a time, it’s not going great. Usually, I’ve got around three books going at a time.

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

I switch between them depending on mood and/or where I am. If I’m bringing a book, I’ll bring the lightest one, which sometimes means ebook or audiobook.

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

What? Why would I do that? Admittedly I have an entire box of bookmarks so that would be a way to use them all. But no. I don’t do that.

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

Online/by my armchair/on a shelf. I.e. I’ve got one ebook going, it’s via the library, I’ve got one that I’ve been reading this weekend, it’s by the armchair where I read, I’ve got one that I’ve put on a shelf, oh, and I’ve also got one on a chest of drawers. They’re all in the same room, just scattered.

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

I mostly read at night, except for weekends, I’ll read throughout the day.

How long do you typically read in one sitting?

I struggle with sitting still so not that long. If I can manage 30 minutes then that’s great.

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

Depends if it’s in the way or not. But mostly on. It doubles as bookmark soo..

What position do you mainly use to read?

Sitting? I really like sitting in my armchair (cross-legged or legs pulled up underneath me, because apparently I’m a child). What I really don’t like is lying down, which is probably the main reason I don’t read in bed.

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

Nope, no. If I’m in the middle of reading something I can just leave the book at home and go away for a few days. I’m not that attached to books.

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

I’m a terrible GoodReads user, if I can manage to update when I’ve finished a book then that’s great (…favorite expression much?). I’m far better at updating Clue.
