Do you have a specific place for reading?
Bookmarks or random pieces of paper?
Can you just stop anywhere or must it be at the end of the chapter?
As I mainly read Recipe books, I will stop at the end of a recipe.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I may have a cuppa coffee and home-made biscotti, as in the first image above, as I work in my kitchen/living area.
Music or TV while reading?
I love sound around me, but I do not listen to it, its background noise, so either of the above will work for me.
One book at a time or several?
With reading Recipe books, usually several as I will be “Hunting” for something in particular.
Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?
I will read anywhere as long as I find an interesting recipe.
Readout loudly or silently?
Silently, as I need to “digest” the recipe – pun intended!
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
When reading a novel, no skipping pages.
Reading a Recipe book, yes then I am on the prowl and hunt.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
No, you never ever break a spine, but most of my reading nowadays is online.
Do you write in your books?
Yes, I do make notes in my personal and own Recipe books, especially when I try out and adapt/modify a recipe. This way I will be able to backtrack and rework it to fine tune the recipe the next time if needed.
This is the hardest part of all.
I invite one and all of you reading this post to accept this as being nominated.
Hope you will have fun, and participate.

Thanks so much my friend, much appreciated
Awesome Esme; so like the library cake. One of yours??? Your last answer reminded me of Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. That potions book that Snape had annotated lol
Really appreciate the shout out too. Will share this later 🙂
Sorry I took so long to get to this, but its been a bit busy at work and then also its summer vacation and Canada Day and 4th July for the Americans etc etc. and we have been away for an extended long weekend as a family (our annual family time). Just love doing it. Thanks again to you for the nomination my friend
Don’t apologise Emse; I’m way behind in ones I have to do!! It’s all about balancing things here at the moment. Really glad you enjoyed it; somehow I thought you might and totally my pleasure wrt the nomination 🙂
I usually try to do it immediate, as procrastinate is not my style, but this time …. oh well, I feel bad for not getting it done sooner, but happy that I did eventually get to it. Thanks again my friend. 🙂
Actually I should learn from you! My problem is I take too many things on and then have to juggle them into a busy reality!!! I need to start using my “project book” lol
The way to hell is paved with good intentions
Very true indeed!!
Sorry, missed to say, no unfortunately this is not one I made, just an image from the internet, but thought it fitting as a foodie
No, but I bet you are hankering to see if you can do it lol. Definitely fitted your tag 🙂
Yes, would one day, not sure when, in the future try to do this one
Congratulations – love your answers and your pictures!
Thanks my Funky cat friend
Very welcome! 🙂
