I’ve seen several bloggers mention reading multiple books this week. Do you frequently read more than one book at a time? Do you try to limit this to a certain number? Do you have different books for different purposes/topics?
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
When I was younger I always read more than one book at a time, as I always liked to have the choice. Now, however, I usually read one book pretty solidly and then pick a new one.
In asking this question, I thought about it a little more and realised that this isn’t actually the truth. I only have the one book that I’m actively reading – which I pick up and take with me everywhere – but I also have several ongoing books that I’ve been reading for several months.
Collections of poetry, for instance, are something that I like to savour, and read a bit at a time, so I have had a book sitting by my bed for a while now. And I’ve also been reading The World of Books (a lovely gift from my friends when I left the library) section by section because I want it to last a while. So in this regard yes, I do read more than one book at a time.
