A little update on my life is due I suppose. I switched from night shift to day shift recently. I'm still not sure how I'm liking the transition yet. I really loved night shift in a lot of respects so it will probably take some time to adjust. A normal sleeping pattern is much appreciated though. I was able to take a quick trip up to Missouri with a couple of my siblings and a couple other friends to visit some friends that we met on the mission trip we went on in June. It was a lot of fun to reconnect and we also got to experience a great ten mile canoeing/kayaking trip. I'm starting to feel the time crunch to get the christening gown done for my brother and sister-in-law's baby as she's due in October! Better get crocheting! We also have a Japanese exchange student here right now which has been fun. He'll be heading home soon though. The other day a couple of my friends and I went to several antique stores and enjoyed going through them and naturally I found some books but also we found some adorable aprons! So that's basically my life right about now.
Now here's the Reading Habits Book Tag I saw on another blog. I do love a good tag. :)
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Normally I read in my bed but sometimes a comfy chair does the trick.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Bookmark normally but I've utilized many random pieces of paper when I was short a bookmark before.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
In the past I always had to finish the chapter but in the last few years I've gotten better at just putting the book down, though it still isn't easy.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
It depends but not normally.
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
No! I can multitask with some things but not with reading. Unless it's an audiobook but that's kind of a different scenario.
One book at a time or several?
I normally have several going anymore though it used to be only one at a time. I normally have one normal book and one audiobook at the same time at least but oftentimes more than that.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Growing up we had to take a book whenever we were going anywhere to read in the car or else we would actually get in trouble. Because of that mentality I normally have a book with me when I go somewhere but I'm not as strict about that as I used to be.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Unless I'm reading to someone I'm reading silently in my head.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
Never! It really annoys me when people do that and I have two close relatives that do that.... they're lucky I still claim them as relatives. ;)
Breaking the spin or keeping it like new?
I own very few new books so normally I don't have to make that decision. Most of my books are beautifully worn already. The couple new books I do have I really don't take the trouble to keep like new as the whole point of having a book is to read it and to break it in.
Do you write in your books?
No! I have highlighted or underlined in non-fiction books before but even then very rarely.
It feels good to be blogging again even if it's just this one post for now. I am trying to keep up with y'all in the blogosphere but sorry if I miss anything!
