The Currently Reading Tag


Hi friends! I saw this tag post on Musings of a Book Girl and it was created by Charly Reynhorse. Alright, let’s go!

How many books do you usually read at once?

I’m usually reading between 2 – 4 book at once. Most of the time it’s 3, but sometimes I’ll try to do 4. I usually fail miserably when I try that but πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. I usually have a novel and an audiobook that I’m reading at once, then sometimes I’ll throw in a graphic novel or manga to mix it up. If I’m really ambitious, I will through in an ebook, as well. As I said, it usually doesn’t work out for me, but I give it a try here and there.

How do you decide when to switch between multiple reads?

Well, if I have an audiobook and another novel (whether ebook or physical) that I’m reading at once, I will read the book when I have time to sit and focus on the story. I will listen to the audiobook while I’m doing other things like chores.

Do you ever switch bookmarks partway through a book?

Usually not. The only time I will is if I accidentally misplace it somehow.

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

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… Everywhere. All over my house. I have one bookshelf in my house but I literally have books strewn from one end to the other.

What time of day do you read the most?

Probably at night when my three children are in bed for the night. It’s nice and quiet (except for whatever my husband is doing) and I can relax and enjoy my book.

How long do you typically read in one session?

It’s sooo different all the time. Sometimes, it’s for 30 minutes and other times I will get to read for a few hours in one session. I don’t really have a definitive answer for this one. It just varies from day to day.

Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket off?

Yes. I don’t want to ruin it by wrinkling/accidentally ripping/etc.

What position do you mainly use to read?

Sitting up. I like to sit on my couches and read. Usually, stretched out with my feet propped up.

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

I guess it depends, really. If I’m reading an ebook or audiobook then yes but only because I don’t go anywhere without my phone. If I have a physical book that I’m reading. then typically I don’t. The only exception to that rule is if I know I will be away from home for a while and I think I will get bored.

How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress?

Not much. I will update for a physical book if I see a quote that I like. Then, I will put that quote in the update with my progress. That’s the only time I update, for physical books. I’m inconsistent with updates for any other format.

And that’s all for this tag. I’m not tagging anyone but if you see this and want to do it then go right ahead.

  1. I try not to update Goodreads too much either. I used to be weirdly obsessed with keeping it up to date and now I finish a book and think β€œaw man, I forget to mark when I started it” πŸ˜…
