I don't have a TON of bookish habits. I think I might be OCD at times, but not really when it comes to reading. But here is a list of things I do:
I will read pretty much anywhere... even in the car.
I will eat and drink while reading, and sometimes I spill... oops!!!
I always watch TV while I read. My husband is jealous that I can read with the TV on because he needs quiet in order to concentrate. I am really good at tuning things out. Like a bomb could go off while I'm watching Pretty Little Liars and I wouldn't hear it. Or someone could talk to me for 15 minutes before I'll realize it if I'm really into a book.
I prefer to read somewhere comfy like my bed or my fav chair in our living room... but I think I would read in a pile of broken glass if I was into the book enough.
I don't think I could listen to music while reading. I'm really good at tuning things out, so what would be the point? At least with the TV I can look up every now and again and get something out of it... what would I get out of tuning in for 5 seconds of a song I've heard 100 times?
I usually read at night because I am basically a vampire. Daylight hurts.
I NEVER re-read. I just don't have time.
Some Bad Habits:
- I am kind of rough on books. I throw them in my purse and change gets all stuck between the pages... I dog-ear, I spill food like I said earlier. Sometimes I get really embarrassed when I have to take library books back :(
- I read endings! I'm trying not to do it as much as I used to but sometimes I just can't help myself.
- I skim... if I'm about to DNF, I'll skim parts of the book just to get through it. Or if there is a really loooong paragraph describing a lake or a cloud, I skim.
- I don't like to lend books. Is that stingy??
