  1. I am hopeless when it comes to sneaking a peek at the last pages of a book *sigh* which is where my Kindle comes in handy as I can't "accidently" catch a glimpse of the ending.

  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.

  3. I sometimes find the characters name's difficult to pronounce so I make my own names that are simpler up.

    ReplyDelete
  4. "We'd love to read about your quirky reading habits." Quirky! I'm very conventional!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I have to have Doritos and a small piece of Hershey's chocolate. LOL And I often comment about something exciting I'm reading to my dog. He never comments back. Just gives me the look. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  6. I really only feel comfortable reading in bed. I can read in other spots but I am easily distracted. I like my comfy bed.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love reading dystopian/apocalyptic novels where just about everyone dies :0 I always assume I'll somehow survive, so it's like reading a how-to survive guide. I also love to read in the bath, and have dropped my Sony e-reader one too many times. The first few dunkings were forgiving, but the last one did it in. So I'm currently dunking real, paper books.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I don't know that I have a lot of quirky reading habits, but I do not like to read samplers usually. I have very little patience when it comes to finishing a story, so excerpts and samplers are usually a pass for me. I also like to wait until a series is complete so that I can read all the books in one go instead of having to wait for all the books to be released. =]

  9. Mine aren't quirky as I usually just read in bed or on a sunlounger if on holiday!

    ReplyDelete
  10. When I read The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell, there were so many characters mentioned I had to make a list of them, who they were and their relationships to each other, as I just couldn't remember them all!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hmmm... the only thing I can think that's quirky about my reading habits, in the sense of a bit weird, is that I count mentally each line as I read, in sets of 4, with the ultimate aim of sets of 16. I love these numbers because you can divide by 2 and never reach an irrational number, haha. (Gulp, never told anyone this before hehe ;) ). It's such a habit that I hardly realise I'm doing it most of the time and doesn't interfere with my absorption in the story. Maybe it's my love of Maths combined with love of reading?? haha

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love to read physical books and find it hard to get into ebooks as it's not the same.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I read in phases, like for a week just ya fantasy, then next week biker romance then so on and on.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Laughing at a joke I read in a book for days or remembering a funny scene that occurred in a book and reading the whole book again just for that reason.

    ReplyDelete
  15. None actually. I just like to read complete silence around me.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It has to be in bed at the end of the day I can't read any other time it just does not seem right :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I always take an actual book with me if I am going to be getting a coffee or food out alone - judging by some of the looks I get that is really weird!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I usually read in bed. I have to have my pillows a very certain way. Each one has it's specific place.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I hope I win, looks like great things to win here.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't know about quirky reading habits, perhaps that I always read a book to end even if I think it's a bad one - probably in the hope that it'll get better. I also always need a cup of coffee when I'm reading, it's my time to relax and enjoy reading.

Can get a bit annoying when it's 10 and I have some pages left to read, I usually end up reading until the half past mark lol.
