Book Blogger Hop 3

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

This week's question is: Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?


I've always liked to be reading a couple of different books at once. I think the maximum that I can really successfully juggle is about 4. More than that and I start to get the plotlines mixed up. It's funny, I'll go through a period where I'm zipping through books really quickly, then I'll have one that just seems to take me forever to read, which slows me right down. I'm in a slow spot right now, after a feverish start to the reading year. I'm reading Alchemy and Meggy Swann by Karen Cushman, which is awesome, but I'm reading it slowly to savor the Shakespearean style insults in the book. I'm also reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett, which I've been meaning to check out for a while. I don't read much adult fiction, but this book is excellent. It's already so sad, though, and I'm only on chapter 4! If it gets much more tragic, I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish it.


What are you reading right now?

  3. I read multiple books at a time too, but I have never counted how many to be exact.

  4. I try to line it up so that I don't finish everything all at once, so I can avoid that, "Oh, no, what will I read next?" feeling. LOL.

  6. Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.

    The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness - http://www.howardshermannet

  7. New follower here. I typically read one book at a time unless I have a book emergency of some sort. I don't zip through books as much as I would like because of school, but it is what it is.
