I am not sure how often I will do this because I am generally a pretty easy to please reader, but every now and again, my TSS post may well feature a commentary about the things that annoy me!
For my first post though, I guess I will have to explain why it peeves me before I reveal my pet peeve.
Do you have reading quirks? I do. Today's example of this is to do with when I put a book down. When I am reading on the train, I try, where possible to finish reading for the morning at a chapter break, or at the very least at one of those big breaks between paragraphs (whatever they are called). In other words it will be at a natural break in the text.
When I am reading at home though, it is a little more complicated than that. Yes, I still put the book down at the end of a chapter, but wherever possible I will put the book down at the end of a chapter that is divisible by 5. So if it is chapter 13, I will push on to read 2 more chapters. If I am at the end of chapter 25 or 30 I feel very comfortable in putting the book down for the night. Why? I don't know. I don't even know when this particular trait started!
All of which leads me to a problem when a book doesn't have any chapter breaks. How can I put it down if there are no chapter breaks, and yet at some point I really have to. At the moment I am reading The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer - no chapter breaks. Next book is Terry Pratchett's Sourcery. I don't think that I have noticed chapter breaks in any Terry Pratchett books. How can there be no chapters!
I know it is a small thing, but it seriously makes me struggle about when I can put a book down.
Do you have any pet peeves which other people might not find annoying at all. How about quirky reading habits?
