Here’s the question:
Some people read one book at a time. Some people have a number of them on the go at any given time, perhaps a reading in bed book, a breakfast table book, a bathroom book, and so on, which leads me to…
- Are you currently reading more than one book?
- If so, how many books are you currently reading?
- Is this normal for you?
- Where do you keep your current reads?
Yes, I actually am, but I’m really not. My fiance really wants me to read House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, so I started that maybe three weeks ago, but I haven’t gotten past the halfway mark yet. I really don’t like it, but I feel like I should continue since he wants me to so much. I’m really reading The Traitor’s Wife by Susan Higginbotham.
I’m generally a one-book kind of person. I start two, but I choose one and the one I like less gets consigned to the “currently reading” tag on LT until I persuade myself to finish it or decide to give it up, whichever happens first. It often says I’m reading more than one, but I’m almost always actually reading one and should be reading the others instead. Sometimes if I’m away from my current read I’ll start a new one, but it doesn’t happen all that often.
I keep my books wherever is handy at the time, I don’t really have a specific spot. I’ll bring it wherever I am.
Also worth noting, my university has decided to cut off certain aspects of the internet this weekend and I’ve noticed that the admin section of my blog is running painfully slowly. I also can’t use VoIP which means I can’t even talk to my parents, and we’re really irritated about that, but it’s Easter weekend so not much I can do. I’m not sure what else will stop working, so if I’m a little less present than normal, I do apologize.
