Get to Know Me Tag

I found this quiz via @boundtowriting and it looked interesting so I thought I would give it a try. I always like answering personal questions where I can reflect on my life. I don't know who the original creator is of this tag. If you do, please let me know. I would love to give them some credit.



Books

Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?:
I can stop reading anytime, but I prefer to stop at a new chapter. I don't like leaving a book in the middle of a thought. Otherwise, I tend to have to re-read things over again before continuing on.

Nah, I don't like it. If there is a chance of something getting on my precious book then I won't do it. I am very protective of my books.

No, I get too distracted. I like no sounds.

I always have several going. I always have at least one physical book going and one audiobook. 
Reading at home or everywhere?:
I prefer at home in bed but I bring books everywhere. 
Reading out loud or silently in your head?:
Silently in my head.
Do you read ahead, or skip pages?:
No, I don't like spoilers.

Keep it new!!! I like my books looking new.

I write and read them! My first novel is in the works.
