Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly series created by Rukky at Eternity Books and hosted by Aria at Book Nook Bits. The full list of March topics can be found here.
This week’s topic is about where you stop when reading. I didn’t really think about this until this post.
Let’s get started!
Are you the type of reader able to stop reading just anywhere? In the middle of a sentence? Paragraph? Or do you need to reach the end of a chapter before stopping?
I can stop anywhere, but I don’t like to. Sometimes I get interrupted and have to stop mid-sentence which I hate. My preference is to read until the end of the chapter. If I can’t do that, for example if I’m falling asleep while reading which happened last night 😉 then I try to get to at least the end of a paragraph and stop there.
What do you do if you can’t stop at a good point – do you have to go back right away to stop at a better place?
I usually just leave it for the time being until I can return to reading.
Do you use bookmarks in a special way to remember where exactly you are?
I always use a bookmark when reading. Rarely do I go without because I could never remember the page or chapter if I didn’t mark it somehow.
How uncomfortable does it make you to stop in the middle of an exciting part of the book, and how do you deal with that?
I would say it makes me pretty uncomfortable. I think this is why I only read when I know I will have a set amount of time to do so, and that I won’t be interrupted. I can’t remember the last time this happened but I was probably pretty grumpy for the rest of the day until I was reunited with my book 🙂
