Top 5 Bookish Habits

Hello there, homo sapiens! It’s time for Top 5 Tuesday. This is actually my first time doing this so let’s see how I’d manage. 🙂

This tag is hosted by Shannah over at Bionic Book Worm and today’s topic is:

 Bookish Habits

Read on as I share some of my bookish quirks.

1. Reading more than one book at a time.



I usually read at least two to three books at a time, one book shorter than the other and of different genre. At home, I usually read physical books. Since the time someone gave me my Kindle, it’s always in my bag wherever I go. I used to bring one physical book with me all the time when I didn’t have it yet. Though there are still times when I bring a physical book along with my Kindle.


2. One book, one bookmark.


I don’t know when this started but it has been years that I never use the same bookmark twice. There is one bookmark assigned for each book I have. So when you take a book from my shelf, there will always be a bookmark somewhere between the pages.


3. Super delayed book reviews.


I’m a mood reader and that applies to my reviews, too. I’m almost always late/delayed with my book reviews because my mood influences me a lot when to write it. Not that I write brilliant book reviews but well, yeah, it just takes me a long while to write my thoughts about a book.

4. Reading before going to sleep.



I always read before I sleep. It could be a few pages from the current book I’m reading, or some news and updates, some magazines or any article that looks interesting while browsing the internet. I think it helps my brain and body relax before I sleep.

5. Taking every opportunity to visit a bookstore/book fair.


Like libraries, bookstores/bookshops and book fairs, are my happy place. I will always have to go inside a bookstore whenever I pass by one. I can’t just pass by it. It’s always a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by books and browsing all the titles displayed. Not to mention smelling them. Oh, I love the smell of books. And mostly every time, I never go without a book purchased to add on my never-ending TBR shelf.

So there goes my first Top 5 Tuesday. Do we share the same bookish habits? What are yours? I’d be delighted to know them so feel free to share them in the comments section or leave a link to your post so I can read them.

Happy Tuesday, homo sapiens!

Basically a breathing, moving, eating and happy-go-lucky homo sapiens. Full-time daydreamer and part-time paranoid. I love reading, I love Roger Federer, I love food.

  1. I love that you assign a bookmark to every book! And oh man, as a mood reader I totally know what you mean about delayed reviews. Sometimes it makes me feel guilty, but I don’t wanna force myself to read something I don’t want to!


  2. I can relate to all these 😂 recently I’ve got my nephew to choose my bookmarks. The other day I sent him to get me a bookmark and he came back with a receipt so it’s always a surprise 😂😂

    1. Good thing bookmarks are affordable and downloadable! 🙂 I try to finish every book I start reading, I really do but there are a few that can’t really keep me going. Thanks for visiting. 🙂


    1. Whoa! That’s a lot! But I can understand because you write very thorough book reviews unlike mine. I like how you write your book reviews actually. Anyway, cheers to delayed book reviews. Ha!
