Well, since Booklikes is finally cooperating for me, I thought I'd chime in on @spookyshouseofbooks survey.
Do you have a certain place in your home for reading?
Not really. I read all over the place - family room, living room, kitchen, bedroom. Wherever is comfortable!
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I mostly read ebooks or listen to audiobooks these days. However, when I read a print edition, I use a random piece of paper - often a sticky note - as a bookmark.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop read after a chapter / certain number of pages?
I usually try to get to a logical stopping place, although not necessarily a chapter break.
Do you eat or drink while you read?
Um, yes. My favorite reading snacks are sunflower seeds or dill pickles (not at the same time). I also drink tea or coffee while reading. Or wine. Or beer. I also read while I eat meals, if I am on my own.
Multitasking: music or TV while reading?
I can't really do much other than read when I read. The exception to this is that I enjoy listening to audiobooks while sewing, embroidering or cross-stitching. In fact, I finished this while I was listening to Murder on the Orient Express:
(It's an Ikea pillow cover embroidered for my daughter). I'll be listening to Murder at the Vicarage next, and will be working on a matching Pegasus pillow:
One book at a time or several at once
I typically have three or four books on the go: fiction, non-fiction, and at least one audiobook, if not more than one.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere. If I can't read, I listen.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
My read-aloud days are over, since my youngest is 16. Until I have grandkids, at least.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I refuse to answer that question on the basis that it might incriminate me.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
Trade paperback I keep like new. MMPB inevitably end up with broken spines.
Do you write in your books?
Not usually. Sometimes I use sticky notes. I highlight on my ereader.
