Saturday @ Starbucks is a weekly feature hosted by Starbucks & Books Obsession.
This week's topic is:
Reading Habits & a Valencia Orange Refresher
Drink of the Week: Valencia Orange Refresher
A month or so ago, I featured the Berry Hibiscus Refresher on the blog. Since then, Starbucks has come out with a new flavor: Valencia Orange. I think it may be my new favorite refresher. It is sweet and tangy and definitely refreshing. It has more flavor than any of the other refreshers and is super delicious.
Also, from July 15 to August 18, treat receipts are back! So take your morning latte receipt back in after 2:00 pm and get a grande cold beverage for only $2.00!
Book Topic of the Week: Reading Habits
So I was just sitting around reading, blogging and tweeting and I was thinking about all the different things that I do when I read and it got me thinking about my reading habits and the things I do when I read. I thought it would make a fun topic and I would love to know what other reading habit other readers have.
*Listening to music: I know from other discussion topics, that I am out of the norm on this one. I cannot read in silence. Silence drives me insane! I prefer to have music and I could spend an entire day listening to my playlists while lounging on the couch and reading. If I can't have music, I will let the TV play in the background. On many evenings, I sit and read while my hubby watches TV.
*Multi-tasking: The other day, may dad was visiting and asked how many electronic gadgets I needed. I was sitting on my couch reading my kindle, working on blog posts on my computer and tweeting on my phone. Blogging takes a lot of time and I love chatting with my blogger girls on twitter but I need to be reading so I sometimes do all 3 at the same time, especially on the weeknights since I work all day.
*Reading multiple books: Yes, I am one of those people that sometimes reads multiple books at a time. This works for me and sometimes I have to do it when I'm on a tight deadline. Usually I will start a for pleasure book and then realize I need to read a for-review book and hop over to that one to finish before jumping back. I use an older kindle for the gym, so sometimes I read a different book at the gym than what I'm reading at home.
*Highlighting: I like using quotes in my reviews and sometimes I read something that really speaks to me and I need to remember that. I love to highlight and that is my favorite feature of the Kindle. I can highlight the shit out of a book (and there are some that definitely have a lot of highlights) and this way the book doesn't get ruined.
I am sure there are many more habits but these are the ones I practice most often. What about you? Do you have any habits that you practice on a regular basis? Do you share any of mine?
