Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages? Best to stop at the end of a chapter, but if I’m interrupted I put a little pencil dot in the margin. On the Kindle I highlight the beginning of the paragraph in pink.
Do you eat or drink while reading? No. I collect classic leather books. One coffee spill would be disastrous!
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading? I prefer solitude and silence.
One book at a time or several at once? Usually I’m reading four at once, changing books as my mood changes.
Reading at home or everywhere? Everywhere.
Reading out loud or silently in your head? Silently in my head, unless it’s a book I’ve written. Those I have to hear.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages? No, not really. Missing a valid point or clue would change the storyline.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new? Trying as much as possible to keep it pristine. I never know until I’ve read a book if it will become part of my collection or not.
Do you write in your books? I used to do that in nonfiction when I was studying. I haven’t done that in years, probably decades!
