No matter who you are or what you are reading, I am sure we all have a habit. Whether it is commenting out loud, drumming your fingers or eating a light snack, we all have that one small little habit. Today, I decided to tell you my three reading habits! If like me, you do some of these things comment below- I would love to know that I’m not the only one!
1. Tapping My Fingers or Foot
I’m one of those people who constantly have to be moving a part of my body and usually when I read in a sitting position I will continuously tap or shake my leg. I do it subconsciously but it really annoys my family and friends because whilst I’m doing it I will be shaking the table. When I’m reading, I get really anxious at tentious points and my tapping will go through the roof. If I am in no position to shake my feet, I’ll drum my fingers.
2. Commenting Out Loud
If I am reading next a close family member or friend, I will comment whilst reading. For example, if a book character died (which actually happened to me today 😦 ) I will literally start screaming and will start chanting, “NO! NO! NO!”. If a major plot-twists happens, I will also start screaming! If the character I am reading about is being frustratingly annoying, I will cry out in annoyance. This annoys some of my friends because sometimes I will break the silence and scare them! 🙂
3. Fiddling With Objects
Whenever I am reading, I will fiddle with the nearest object- twirling my hair, scrunching up paper or playing with a keychain. Similar to the reasons for why I tap my feet and fingers, I get really nervous whilst reading and so I will literally grab the nearest thing and start fidgeting with it. I am actually doing it right now. 🙂 Lots of my friends do this, so hopefully I’m not the only one!
These are my three reading habits! Don’t forget to comment below your reading habits:
