Tag you're IT!

 I've been tagged by Vicki  

Reading Habits questionnaire.

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I read mostly on public transit,  I travel quite a bit and it's boring, so I read, if the book is really getting good, I'll read in my living room. Use to read before bed in my youth, sometimes under the blankets with a flashlight, but now I just fall asleep, although some books I've read keep you up at night.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Mostly bookmarks, but I usually don't have one just when I need it,  I might add I have quite a collection.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
I can stop after a paragraph if I have to, but would rather stop at the end of a chapter.

Do you eat or drink while reading?
If the book is really good and I'm reading at home, it's a large cup of tea, and sometimes if it's going to be a late night, I'll bake for the occasion.

Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
I find listening to music very distracting, some time I'll watch TV/ and read.

One book at a time or several at once?
Always one book at a time, never mastered the art of multiple reads.

Reading at home or everywhere?
I read anywhere and usually do.

Reading out loud or silently in your head?
I read silently, although I do express emotion, like crying in public.

Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I don't skip, although I do share some small bit on pg. 56 of the book I'm currently reading in my Friday 56 post, sometimes I haven't started yet, as I usually and for no real reason, start a book on Friday.

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new.

Do you write in your books?
No No No! Never have, never will!  Although of late I've been using sticky notes on significant pages or to look up things.

I'm not going to tag anyone, BUT I think this makes a great post, perhaps you'd like to play along

I still love real books. Bought a Kindle, but seldom used it. Books are piling up making me want more bookshelves soon.

I have quite a collection of bookmarks and always use them. I used to lie in bed and read every night but I can't anymore - my arms fall asleep when I do. Getting old is tough!

Great answers! NMany are similar to mine.

I'm officially out of jars...

Got up early today, (not so early), and could smell my peaches ready for processing.  I also had a whole  basket of peppers ready to go as ...
