|Some of my upcoming reads are pictured above!|
In keeping with my "devour" mindset to reading, I have embraced ALL the formats. Physical, ebooks and audiobooks. During the week, when I have work and a commute, I like to read a book in one of the mobile formats - ebooks and audiobooks. I can listen to audiobooks while I'm working (I'm so glad I don't have to work with people too much!) and I can read my ebook during lunch or when I have a few minutes here or there. Whispersync between my Kindle and my iPhone is my dearest friend - I love that I can pick up reading on different devices so quickly!
Physical books I like to save for the weekends when I can really enjoy holding the book and turning the pages (because during work lunch it's sometimes difficult to hold a book one-handed and read while eating). Also I feel better keeping my books at home since I want to keep them in as good condition as possible! It's terrible to think I can spill things on it or accidentally fold pages while it's in my bag!
The other habit I've gotten into is to not read too many books at once - at least I always try to read only one book in one format at a time. It's easier for me since I'm not a mood reader, and I feel like I am much more productive blog-wise if I finish a book in a week, instead of finishing three books at the same time in three weeks. Then I can space out my reviews better.
Lastly I read any time I can. The different book formats help me pick up a book whenever I want. I get a lot more reading time on the weekends usually, but if I can read most of a book during the week, I feel like I made a lot of progress.
What are your book reading habits? When are your most productive reading times?
I would also really appreciate it if you would fill out this brief survey below on reading habits. It will be interesting to see the results!
