Get to Know Me Tag

Hello, people of the internet, fellow readers and aliens!!I’m doing a tag once again because I’m tagged in a lot of tags, I can’t even. I like in most of the tags I do I have to thank Danielle from The Introverted Book Nerd. She is amazing, just like her blog so go check it out!

Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?

  • I cannot stop anywhere! I have to be at the end of a storyline or something like that. Most of the time I just stop when I reach the end of a chapter.

Can you read listening to music or watching tv?

  • Not watch tv, not at all. But sometimes I read while listening to jazz or some other type of music.

One book at a time or several at once?
