hello everyone! we both love reading books and today we will be doing the currently reading book tag that has really good questions! We were “kinda” tagged for this by Nehal @nehal says. Its our very first tag😄 on this blog.!! hope you all like it!!!!!!!!😃 So let us get started with the questions! the bold is for my ( khushi ‘s) answers and normal is for Kunjal ‘s answers!
1. How many books do you usually read at once?
Um my highest has been 2 or okk yeah maybe 3. But I feel I am doing injustice to one book. So, I keep myself committed to one book. At least I try. Or I just leave it if I don’t like it and sometimes maybe read something casual.. Sometimes…
I can read around 4-5 books at a time but it is like if i like a book more then obviously i get addicted to it and end up finishing it first. I like to have books of different genres with me at all times though.
2. If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch to reading the other book?
if you are trying a super new genre, you may want a switch like recently I started up on a historical book. But I after reading 60 percent I fell out of tandem. So, I read some casual reads (like maybe which are short reads around 200 pages)They are really helpful!
(P.S always have some casual reads in stock! Need some names?)
Huh well again depends on my mood. Everytime i want to read something I see my options and then choose it . when i am happy i go with some ya dramas, or thrillers. Otherwise i prefer reading non-fiction as well ( if i do not feel too lazy). And a classic is always welcome 😀
3. Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re part way through a book?
I read on kindle (wait kindle is good ok? You don’t get to know the length of the book! I can prove it to you by saying I read a series in one week! and ah back to the point) so I don’t really make use of book marks.
Um no never, you can not just switch bookmarks can you?
4. Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?
I know I don’t get to feel the cover page or breathe in the smell (** yeah with advantages come disadvantages oops) and all my books are stored in kindle or on my laptop.
Ok so i read both hard copy as well as those on kindle. I have this bookshelf but my currently reading book stays at a small bedside table so that i can just read it anytime in the night or day, as for the ebooks , i have them on kindle , my laptop, my tab … basically everywhere
- What time of day do you spend the most time reading?
Staring at the stars, face lit by book, pouring through words… losing yourself…. Alone’
I read( oops back to normal text) at night. It is such a great feeling.. it is like everything is shushed for some time. Ears become hyperactive and very faint noises of birds, desks, doors, can be heard. I read at night because if I read at day I may lose a full day! And well that has happened. All blaming to books!
Just 1 sentence for this – at any time when I can read in silence and there is just me with my book( even 3 a.m at the night suits me if these conditions are met )
7. How long do you typically read for in one go?
I read around 2 or sometimes more than 2 hours. 2 hours is typically how long I read.
That depends on many things. My mood, the genre of the book, and the amount of other work I have to do on that particular day.
But usually it is around half an hour( for an average book) and around 4-5 hours( for an exemplary extraordinary book )
8. Do you read hard covers with the dust jacket on or off?
I don’t read hard covers.
I am very protective of my things so i dunno i have this feeling that removing the dust jacket is like taking off the protection or stealing the cover of the book, I like to keep it on
9. Which position do you mainly use to read?
Sitting is said to be a good position to read and do something. But I gradually find myself leaning down and over the pillow. So that is mainly the position in which I read. And then as you know I drift off to sleep.
Ah ! well i lie down on my back and read, with aesthetic music playing on a loudspeaker it makes a very good position to get lost in the book
10. Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?
Sometimes.. but not always. I am an extrovert so if it is a place and plus if there are people I won’t be able to commit myself to the book. I thus, prefer not to take my kindle with me.
Hm well not everywhere, but I always prefer the company of a good book over small talk . I have books surrounding me at most times, even in school or when I am travelling ( even if just to a nearby place ) I like to carry a book with me
11. How often do you update your progress in the book you’re currently reading on Goodreads?
I just update it as finished reading. But sometimes I forgot to. So it maybe that 50 read books isn’t exactly the right count.. it can be more….
Hmm so well I upload it after reading it , so that I can write reviews after reading till the end and not judge by the starting .
Hmm were the answers satisfactory enough? aren’t we different😁?
