Since I’m still drowning in unmarked papers for my class, I figure I’ll join the blog hop for today… one of these days I’ll get back to those useful posts I like writing… but it’s Friday (Friday…) so who wants to sit around and read long blog posts today anyway?
Here’s what the blog hop is: In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!
QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
"Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"
I’m a book hopper… it’s true! I always have more than one book on the go, and it’s a habit I formed years and years ago. I don’t remember ever reading only one book at a time, to be honest. I tend to read according to my mood, so I’ll have different books for different moods.
I try to always have at least one non-fiction on the go, as well. And I’m notorious for starting a book, enjoying it, and getting highly distracted by another book and not going back to that first book for several years. Then one day I’ll get the itch, pick it up, and keep reading from where I left off.
Is that weird? I don’t know…
Right now, I’m reading: Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Unearthly by Cynthia Hand, The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan, and a few self-help books on stress reduction. That’s fewer books than usual, in fact. Oh, and I’ve had The Count of Monte Cristo on hold for about 8 months now… I’ll get back to it soon… really!
How about you? Do you read multiple books at a time? Maybe you only read certain kinds of books while you’re writing a certain kind of story (I’ve heard this happens too)… what are you reading right now, and if you’re not reading, why not? Writers need to read constantly, so go pick up a book!
