The Currently Reading Book Tag

I saw this book tag on Anna’s Book Nook in October, and I am just now getting round to it! I feel like at the moment I am reading so many books or have so many unfinished that this tag might be a good one for me to do to sort my brain out!

How many books do you usually read at once?

At least two! I think at the moment I am juggling three/four. I have almost finished one, so technically four but almost three.

How do you decide when to switch between multiple reads?

It depends on mood, I guess? Sometimes I will just be in the mood to read a certain type of book or if I don’t think I can focus on a really detailed story I would go for a poetry book or a graphic novel. Sometimes it depends on what I am doing if I am on a long drive or cleaning, I will listen to my audiobook.

Do you ever switch bookmarks partway through a book?

Not particularly. Though I have in the past if say I am reading one book and already started the second, if I finish the first one before I finish the second and I like the bookmark more for the first one, then I will swap it.

What time of day do you read the most?

Mostly during the evenings, though I do find myself trying to fit in small reading sessions throughout the day.

How long do you typically read in one session?

It can range anywhere between five minutes and six hours – I am not very consistant.

Do you read hardcovers with the dust jacket off?

Yes! It feels like showering with my clothes on if I leave the dust jacket on the book while reading.

What position do you mainly use to read?

Well – it depends. If I am listening to an audiobook, I’ll either be driving or cooking or cleaning. But, with a physical book, I would normally just be curled up in bed or on the sofa.

Do you take your current read with you everywhere you go?

I’m usually too scared to damage my book to carry it around everywhere, so usually when I am out and about I would just listen to my audiobook. The only time I would take my book with me would be if I was going away for a few days.

How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress?

Pretty much everytime I put the book down. I enjoy statistics when it comes to my reading habits, so I like to be able to see my progress.

What are you currently reading?

  1. Loving the analogy of showering with the clothes on! 😂 Is anyone out there actually read an hardcover with the jacket on?? I try to do it sometimes but it’s just.. not a very pleasant thing. Especially if you try to read laying down- generally bigger books that i’m already struggling with holding 😅 trying to keep the jacket on and not damage it is bothering.

    1. Haha thanks! I’ve actually seen so many people who do read with them one and it always confuses me because I’m like you and can’t read it without worrying about damaging it!

  2. Well, right now I am technically not reading a novel.

    I have a treasury of Hans Christian Anderson, and I am reading some of those short stories.

    After that, will go to A Christmas Treasury- filled with Christmas short stories and poems. Just doing the Hans Christian Anderson now, and wait till the stories start.

  3. I’m glad you did this tag! I think it’s fun, and I enjoyed reading your answers! I have never kept Goodreads up to date outside of when I start and finish books, but I do love statistics so I could see myself starting to update more soon! 🥰
