I read pretty much everywhere I can, but my favorite place is on my comfy chair upstairs in my library. I bought it for $10 at a garage sale when I moved out of my parents' house, and it's the perfect chair for reading in. (And I named it Harvey. Don't ask me why. I have no explanation.)
It's nice to stop at a chapter break, but not essential. The only place I can't stop is on page 99 (or 199 or 299, etc.). I have to read on to page 100. Again, don't ask me why. I can't explain my quirks.
Habitually. I read over breakfast every morning. And if I'm up in my comfy chair, I love to sip hot chocolate as I read.
I sometimes listen to music, but only if it doesn't have any words. I don't watch a lot of TV, but I'll definitely pick up my book during commercials (exception: the Superbowl, where I watch the commercials and read during the game!).
Before this year, I would have proudly claimed the title of book monogamist. For the most part, that's still true. But I'm working my way through War and Peace by reading 15 pages a day, and I'm finding that I actually kind of enjoy having two books going. It also appears to be a great way for me to get through a huge chunkster. So I may be doing more of this two-books-at-a-time thing.
I'll read anywhere I get a chance to! And yes, I often carry a book with me in my purse.
Silently. I love reading out loud to my fourth graders, but I'm a silent reader for my own purposes.
Nope. In fact, I hate it even when my eyes involuntarily jump to the facing page. I prefer to know what happens in the order that it happens.
I'll occasionally bend back a paperback to make it easier to hold open when I read. But I don't typically intentionally break spines or try to keep my books like new. If they look like they've been read and loved, I'm okay with that!
Not really. I just got a notebook last month for writing down quotes I like from books I'm reading. I'd rather have them all collected in one place, rather than having to hunt them down in the original books. But I have occasionally been known to write notes in the margins of books I know I'll be revisiting.
