Today on Six for Sunday the prompt is bookish habits, so let’s dive in!
1. Bookish Spreadsheet
I use an amazing spreadsheet made by Kaleena at Reader Voracious. It helps you track pretty much everything from the number of books you’ve read this year, how many ARCS you have outstanding, the followers and stats of your blog and everything in between. It’s brilliant for helping me plan my blog posts and I think I’d be pretty lost without it.
2. Collecting bookmarks
I’m a bit obsessed with bookmarks. If we go on holiday or go to an event I always like to pick one up in the places we’ve visited. To be honest I usually just end up using the same ones over and over again but I have a nice little collection and I love getting new ones.
3. Reading more than one book at once
I’ve got a terrible habit of reading more than one book at once and then it takes me even longer to finish them. I currently have two on the go at the moment – which is actually pretty good at the moment.
4. Reading in the car
This is a new habit I’ve picked up since I started driving to work rather than commuting on the train. I’ve started leaving a bit earlier so that I get to work in plenty time and then I can spend thirty minutes in the car just chilling out and reading some of book. It’s a great way to start the day and always puts me in a good mood.
5. Always having an overflowing TBR Cart
I bought one of those adorably cute TBR carts and it’s great for putting the books I haven’t read yet. Trouble is when I take one off and read and it leaves a space it pretty much means I’ll go out and buy another book – I don’t think I’ll ever have a cart that’s half empty.
6. Reading with my cat
My favourite place in the world to read is on the couch with the cat. It’s become something of a routine at weekends for me to grab a blanket and she’ll sleep while I read. It’s really relaxing, the only trouble being that it’s a bit distracting when she starts to snore!
So those are six of my bookish habits, what are some of your bookish habits?
