The 'Lost In A Book' Tag

Hey everyone :)

I was reading one of my favourite blogs: Underland to Wonderland by Danielle and she did a post called "The 'Lost In A Book' Tag" and as I love reading - I thought I'd steal the idea and do it for today's post. You can check Danielle's out HERE

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I like to be comfortable when reading so I normally get settled in bed with a book. I tried to read on holiday but it was too warm and I was more interested in the pool.

2. Where do you like to read?
As I said above - bed is my more favorable choice.

3. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I use neither actually - I sometimes fold the corner of the page I'm on down or I just try and remember the next time I pick up the book.

4. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop at a chapter?
Depending on the book - for example Harry Potter I could not put it down and stopped at a chapter so I didn't miss anything. Some other books I can stop anywhere.

5. Do you eat or drink while reading?
Sometimes I'll have a drink or a snack but not a full on meal. 

6. E-reader or real book?
Definitely a real book as it makes me want to read it and it's dare I say it ... old fashioned now! I did buy a couple of books on iBooks (the e-reader for the iPhone) and I didn't like it ... there is more distraction that you can check like Facebook or Twitter or something. 

7. Music or television while reading?
I need complete silence and no distraction when I have a book. Even if my boyfriend is sitting near me and is tapping on his phone or even moving - I can't read!

8. One book at a time or several at once?
One at a time as I would probably confuse myself and think other books were part of the book I was reading. Plus I always like to imagine the book in my mind and it's easier with one book that several at once.

9. Reading at home or everywhere?
To be honest I have never read anywhere else apart from my bed (at home) and 'tried' to on holiday in Spain. But I prefer at home where there are less (to zero) distractions.

10. Reading aloud or silently in your head?
We used to have to read segments aloud at school in class and I hated it. I much prefer silently in my own little world.

11. Fiction or non-fiction
Both ... I love magical or sci-fi though ... they are my weakness.

12. Do you read ahead or skip pages?
I can't believe people do this? You might miss something important or ruin the story.

13. Break the spine or keep a book like new?
I like them looking like new ... is that bad? haha! Like they are in a bookshop!

14. Do you write in your books?
If I bought the book to write a paper on ... like in school - then yes I would (I did) write on it ... but for just reading for pleasure then no ... never ... it would ruin them and what if I lent the book to anyone??

15. Your favourite book?
Hmmm .. it's a choice between Harry Potter or Twilight.

If you have never done this tag and feel like doing it feel free ... I won't tag anyone!

Let me know in the comments if you have done it and leave a link so I can go check it out!!
