  1. I like turning to a random page of a new book and just see what is going on in the sentences I read. It gives me a small preview of the book.

  2. Sometimes I like to jump to the end of a book and read the last page, just so I know how it's going to end. I also like the smell of books, especially old ones. This is why, if given the choice, I will always choose a physical book over an ebook any day.

  10. Even though I read ebooks, I still prefer the feel of a printed book and enjoy seeing printed books on my shelves.

  11. It's a bit OCD but my bookshelves HAVE to be symmetrical which usually means having to rearrange them a couple of times a year as newly read ones get added. Those still waiting to be read are set out all along the edge of my bedroom. This means that I can lie in bed and fall asleep just gazing at them all!

  13. sometimes skip to the last page

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like to sneak a peek at the last pages though this (bad) habit gets better when I read on my Kindle as it's apparently a lot easier to "accidently" open the back of a physical book then to jump the last chapter on an eReader.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I set everything ready before I start reading. (drinks/snacks)

    ReplyDelete
