Today’s topic of conversation is “my reading quirks”; all the quirky little things I do whilst reading…
I’ll never really know where exactly I picked up all my reading habits; I guess they just develop the more you read and make reading your own “thing”.
- I always turn the pages until the next chapter and then hold them in my hand as I read the chapter, feeling the pages decrease as I read
- I always have to check how many pages are in a chapter before I begin reading said chapter
- I take a book with me everywhere I go (if my bag allows it)
- I can never leave a chapter half-finished
- I have a million books to read (may be a slight exaggeration?) but I still buy more every time I pass a book shop
- I prefer reading paperbacks. I like how they feel when I hold them and they’re just easier to handle. Hardbacks are a bit of a handful…
- I am constantly worried I’ll never have enough time to read all the books I want to read in my life. Then I have to remind myself that I’m only 22 years old and have loads of time
- I try to have more than one book on the go but I always end up choosing a favourite out of the one’s I’m reading and mainly focusing on that
- I enjoy reading aloud to myself. That’s not because I love the sound of my own voice (I definitely don’t). A book is a good book to me if it sounds good read aloud
- I can never decide on which books I want to buy in the shop and could spend hours trying to decide. When I was younger, I used to go into WHSmith’s and sit on the floor in the children’s book section deciding on the books I wanted to buy with my pocket-money. At one point, my mum went and got the shop assistant to help me decide on a book because I was taking way too long!
So there we go. Those are my 10 reading quirks!
I’d be really interested to hear all the weird things you guys do whilst reading, so please let me know in the comments below!
