So I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately, and I’m usually a one book type of gal. When I start something, I finish it. Period. I don’t care how horrible the book or how painful it is to drag myself to the final page by my fingernails. I finish it. And I don’t start something new until I do.
And now I find myself in the middle of five books at once.
I’m curious to see if any of you out there are capable of reading more than one book at once (I mean, you’re all probably physically capable of it, but do you enjoy it? Do you prefer reading multiple stories at once?).
Suddenly I have a hundred characters and dozens of subplots and settings and themes all dancing in my head. Apparently, I am not a wizard multitasker like I thought I was. Why do this to myself you ask? Because there are a million books I want to read and not enough time to read them all, so, naturally, driving myself mad is the only option.
Tell me about your reading habits. Do you read multiple books at once? Give yourself breaks after you finish one before starting another? Are you one of those people who is always reading a book? And do you always finish a book, or set it aside if it’s just not doing it for you? Let me know in the comments!
