“My Reading Habits” -book tag

Tenth_Doctor_HelloHello, my darlings! How are you all doing? Hope this week was great for you. This week was very lazy for me, It’s crazy hot here and the only thing I can do(without getting too hot) is eat ice cream and read(and watch youtube videos, lots of them). So I decided it would be fun to do a tag about my reading habits !Let’s start.

QUESTION #1: DO YOU HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE AT HOME FOR READING?

My bed or on the couch in my mom’s room.

Reading-in-bed

QUESTION #2: BOOKMARK OR A RANDOM PIECE OF PAPER?

Both! Whatever I have near me ,but I do like beautiful bookmarks .

FXyQ

QUESTION #3: CAN YOU STOP READING ANYTIME YOU WANT OR DO YOU HAVE TO STOP AT A CERTAIN PAGE, CHAPTER, PART, ECT.?

I usually need to end the chapter or even the whole book, I just need to know how the end or I can’t sleep.

QUESTION #4: DO YOU EAT OR DRINK WHILE READING?

I drink tea while reading, no food near my books

QUESTION #5: CAN YOU READ WHILE LISTENING TO MUSIC/WATCHING TV?

not really, sometimes I can..if the book is very interesting.

giphy (20)

QUESTION #6: ONE BOOK AT A TIME, OR SEVERAL AT ONCE?

I try reading one book at a time, but sometimes the books I started just pile up and I’m just sounded with unread but started books.

Home or on a bus!

QUESTION #8: READING OUT LOUD OR SILENTLY IN YOUR HEAD?

Silently in my head. Reading is my quiet time.

QUESTION #9: DO YOU READ AHEAD OR SKIP PAGES?

I do skip pages if the book is boring. But I try not to do it.

read-and-smile-gif

QUESTION #10: BREAKING THE SPINE OR KEEPING IT NEW?

This one is hard…let’s say both. I do like how good books look new, but it’s easier to read when the spine is broken in.

QUESTION #11: DO YOU WRITE IN BOOKS?

No!Never.I hate writing in a book..just in textbooks(but they are meant for it)

7. Best Easter memory?

For me, it’s Kinder surprise eggs. Every year my mom for Easter got them for me and my brother, and because our household was candy free(as in my parents didn’t buy as candy, just sometimes on holidays or celebrations like birthdays) it was a big thing for as kids. My mom still to this day gets us kinder eggs for Easter.

Your Questions
What is the strangest thing you ever got for Christmas?

I haven’t really got anything strange for Christmas, but I did have one “strange” accident with gifts one year.My brother was 7 or 8 at the time(I’m 3,5 years older than him)and while looking for blankets at my grandmother’s house he found the gift stash hidden (obviously from Santa ) and was telling me that he will get a microscope for Christmas and I’m getting a paint set(interesting fact:In Latvia children mostly  just get one gift from “Santa”).I was like,okay that’s cool.So we are getting to the Christmas eve, and my brother is going to the tree too read a poem(We get gifts on the Christmas eve and you need to “earn” them by doing something, like singing or telling a poem.) .After he is done my mom is handing him the gift, and who would know?!He got a battle castle and I got the microscope, and my mom got the paint set. His face was priceless, he was so disappointed he got it all wrong, but that evening we played together with all the stuff, so it was all good.

Do you eat turkey for Christmas dinner or something else?

In my family, we where strict(it was a new thing in Latvia at the time, so relative to an average family we were) Vegetarians when I was growing up, so we had just fish(that’s the only “meat’ we did eat).But traditionally in Latvia people eat pork on the Christmas Eve.

Have you ever eaten fruitcake? Do you like it?

I haven’t.

Do you prefer real or fake Christmas trees?

Both really, right now we have a fake one because we celebrate two Christmases, one on the 24.12 and other on 7.01(My mom is Ukrainian, so we try to keep both traditions alive) .So we need our Christmas tree to stay up a long time, and sadly real ones don’t.

What is the strangest gift you’ve ever given someone?

Does underwear with text on the bump “I want a white Christmas” counts?I got it last year for one of my friends.

What is the most you’ve ever spent on a gift?

hmm…I guess 30 euro(I’m still a student, so you can guess my budget isn’t very flexible)

I’m tagging…
