Today, I want to discuss reading habits: the what, where, when, and how of what I read. I want to know your reading habits too, so be sure to share in the comments!
What I read:
Listen, if you spend a total of 3 seconds on my blog, you know its romance. Its always romance. Occasionally (okay, rarely) I read a nonfiction true crime book. But, if I’m reading, you would have a 99% chance of guessing correctly if you guessed romance. I know what I enjoy! I like the escape of a romance read. I like the predictability of an HEA. I love the banter, the swoon worthy moments, and the feels.
How I read:
I usually am reading 2 books at once: an audiobook and an ebook/physical book. I have discovered recently that I need the two books I am reading to be different genres or else I get them confused. If I am listening to an PNR and also reading a PNR, I find I get mixed up way easier! That never used to be an issue, but I think as I get older it just gets kind of jumbled in my brain. So, now, if I’m listening to PNR, I read contemporary or suspense.
I read on my kindle oasis 95% of the time. Occasionally I have an actual paperback, but that is unusual. I love my Oasis because it has no glare and I can read at night after my husband has gone to bed without bothering him with lights.
Where I read:
Here is where I diverge. If I am listening to an audiobook, its in the car on my way to or from work (its 40 min each way). If I am reading a book, I’m at home in my bed!
I typically have the TV on in the background while I read. Usually, its on something I have seen a million times and therefore not interested in, but I still like to have the background noise. For some reason, I don’t like the radio on while I read. Weird right? I mean, if I want background noise, radio would seem the obvious choice, no?
When I read:
So, again, when I’m in the car listening, it would be between 6-7 am and 3-4 pm, Monday-Friday. I do read every day before bed (sometimes that is hours!).
Share with me-What are your reading habits? Do you have music on when you read? Do you have mad love for your kindle or are you a paperback maniac? Do you have a special reading spot?
