When you read a book, are you one of those readers who starts it, reads all the way through, finishes it and basks in a story well-written before you plunge into another story?
Oh, I so envy you! I am NOT one of those readers. And I’m not sure why. Have I taken multi-tasking a step too far? Maybe.
I am currently reading four novels….no! Wait! That’s five novels. Well, four novels and a resource book but it still counts. This is the breakdown. I have one in my bedroom on my night stand (yes, right beside one of my TBR piles). I have one I keep at work and it will stay there until I finish it (because I do try to take at least thirty minutes for lunch now instead of working straight through which I used to do). I have one in my purse because one never knows when one will be stuck waiting somewhere and I’d rather read than twiddle my thumbs (I also carry a small notebook and pen because one never knows when inspiration will strike). The research book is on my desk in the computer room and lastly (I’m almost embarrassed to admit this), but I have a book in my powder room.
Oh, I forgot my Kindle, which I read while walking on the treadmill (a habit I picked up from HEAT’s lovely webmistress). So that makes six! Six books I am currently reading and you know what’s funny, I can pick up any one at any time, read a sentence and be back in the story just like that. It’s a little scary.
So what about you? One book, two books, three books, four?
As always, happy reading!
