Top Ten Tuesday: Changes In My Reading Life

Formerly hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

This week’s topic is . . . Changes In My Reading Life

  1. I used to read mainly classics, fantasy, and sci-fi books. I still love these genres, but in the last several years, I have found a comfortable and happy escape in swoony contemporaries.
  2. I don’t write, highlight, and tag in my books as much as I used to.
  3. This year I have read more e-books than physical books.
  4. I started DNFing books. I give a book about 80-100 pages, and if I find no connection with it, I drop it.
  5. Lately, I have been preferring standalones over series.
  6. I “try” to read throughout the week, but I get most of my reading in during the weekend.
  7. I have started reading 2-3 books at a time. I used to be a “one book at a time” type of person.
  8. I have cut down on monthly book subscription boxes. 
  9. I used to carry a physical book with at all times, but since I read a lot of e-books, I don’t do this a lot anymore.
  10. This year, I started using my library app/Overdrive more often.

What changes have you seen in your reading life?

  1. I’m with you on #3, 4, and 10, though you definitely give a book a better chance than I do! I quite around page 50-60. I’ve never been much of a fan of series books though. If it’s more than 3, I usually won’t even start it.

  2. I’ve also started reading multiple books at a time this year, usually one on my kindle and one physical book. 🙂

    Here’s my TTT for this week. 🙂

  3. “I have started reading 2-3 books at a time.” I think that’s the biggest change for me too in the last couple of years. Before that it was always one book at a time. Now I’m multi-tasking lol.

  4. Yay! I’m glad to see so many bloggers getting on the DNF train. Life is too short to read bad books. And unlike you, I have gotten away from reading multiple books at a time. I guess this comes in phases for me? Right now I think life is too chaotic for me to keep track of them all! Keep up the awesome work.
