I was tagged by Jessica over at Reading with Jessica. Thanks for the tag girl! I have no idea who created this tag, so I can’t give credit. Okay, let’s get started!
Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?
I can stop reading at any time, but I prefer to stop at the end of chapters when possible.
Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?
More so drink than eat, but I will snack sometimes if I know I won’t get the book dirty.
Can you read listening to music or watching TV?
I can do both, but I usually prefer silence while I’m reading. Less distracting.
One book at a time or several at once?
Several at once. I’m using reading a physical book, listening to an audiobook at work, and then sometimes an ebook to switch things up a bit.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Reading at home like 98% of the time, except when it comes to audiobooks. I listen to those mostly at work, or in the car on road trips.
Reading out loud or in your head?
In my head.
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
As much as I try not to, my eyes sometimes read ahead. Like something further down on the page catches my attention, and I go see what it is before realizing what I’m doing.
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
Keeping it new, if possible.
Do you write books or just read them?
I also write books. YA (young adult) and MG (middle grade) contemporary so far. I might try other genres, and age categories, eventually.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
