Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: Do you like to finish one book before starting the next or do you read several at once?
Yes to both? I used to have a strict one-book-at-a-time policy, and in my heart I still feel like that’s what I do…only it’s become more complicated! I am, actually, in the middle of two books right now–but it only feels like one or possibly two.
You see, I read one book before I go to bed (at the moment, L. M. Montgomery’s Journals), one spiritual or psychological book (How to Live in Fear by Lance Hahn), one audiobook (Little Women by Louisa May Alcott), my husband and I are in the midst of reading two books out loud (The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett and The People the Fairies Forget by me), and there’s a book I’m just reading (The Improbable Sherlock Holmes).
But somehow in my head, I’m only properly reading the last one, or possibly that one and the audiobook. And I try not to start a second book in any category (out loud reading aside) without finishing the ongoing one.
So…the answer is yes. Sort of.
Do you read multiple books at once? Are they all equivalent, or do you divide them up into categories?
