ThursTag: The Currently Reading Book Tag

It’s Thursday! And today I’m sharing the Currently Reading Book Tag, which I saw on The Book of Jess blog.

How many books do you usually read at once?

Obviously, I can only actually read one book at a time. As a minimum, I usually have one physical book, one e-book, and one audiobook on the go at a time. Currently I have two kindle books, two audiobooks, and a physical book. I am very fidgety at the moment, and that’s definitely showing in my reading habits.

Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re part way through a book?

I don’t often use an actual bookmark. It’s usually a postcard, or a gift tag, or a stray piece of paper from somewhere. I only switch them up part way through a book if I lose one whilst reading, which rarely happens.

Where do you keep the book(s) you are currently reading?

My audio books and e books are usually on my phone, so they’re wherever I am. My physical books are usually on my bedside table, unless I am travelling somewhere, and then it’s in my bad, often with a spare just in case.

What time of day do you spend the most time reading?

At night, right before bed. That’s when I generally read. If I get chance during the day, I will often read then. I always get the most reading done on train journeys but there have been none of those for over a year now.

How long do you typically read in one sitting?

If it’s before bed, anything from 30 mins to a couple of hours depending on how tired I am and how early I go to bed. Left to my own devices I could easily read for 3 or 4 hours in an afternoon if there was nothing to interrupt me.

Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacker on or off?

Off. I cannot bear reading books with the dust jackets on. They get in the way and I find them very distracting.

What position do you mainly read?

Okay, this last question is weird. What are my options? Is it a position like in netball (Wing Attack)? I assume my body position, in which case usually laying down or curled in the armchair.

Do you have a preferred reading position? Have you done this tag?

  1. Peapod shares your feelings about dust jackets! He can’t stand them and takes them off (usually in quite a state of annoyance!) before he’ll read the book!
    I, for my part, never realised there were often such lovely covers hiding beneath them until just a couple of years ago – I never knew taking them off the book was ‘a thing’!

  2. Wow, I always admire people who can have multiple books on the go without ending up just completely lost with which story belong where (which would absolutely happen to me πŸ˜‚ though I used to be able when I was in school)

    Love to read at night! Although way easier to go waay past bedtime.. πŸ˜… being a dachshund momma and having them bark quite easily, along with a mother who seems to really love starting a monologue RIGHT as I open a book (πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ) it’s otherwise quite harder for me ahahβ€” though sometimes I smeak a read session on my break at work

    1. We have two spaniels and cracking open a book is definitely some kind of dog code for “give me attention”.

      I haven’t always been able to read multiple books at once, and it definitely gets worse if I’m anxious , but it helps me avoid reading slumps

      1. Oh my god, yes. Sheik is the same with her ball πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Whenever you try to do something, or give attention to her older brother, she comes running with her ball and high-pitch barks
