Book Blogger Hop

This Friday is kind of extra special, because it turns out that the Blogger Hop is now over 1 year old! Happy Birthday Blog Hop!!! This is hosted weekly by Jen at Crazy-For-Books, visit the link to join in!

This week’s question is:
“Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?”

My answer:

I personally only like to read one book at a time. I like to be sucked into the story, and I don’t want one book interfering with my thoughts / feelings towards another book.

That being said though, I do occasionally break down and start reading two or three at a time. This usually happens because I’m…
a) bored with one book.
b) excited to start a new release ASAP.
c) too overwhelmed with the bajillion books I want to or should be reading.

What usually ends up happening when I read more than one book is that I end up ditching at least one of them, because it’s boring me, or I’m no longer in the mood to keep reading it. So, I try to avoid this little problem and only give my attention to one book at a time. Much simpler that way :o)

What about you? Are you book – monogamous? Are do you like to read more than one?

Also, before you leave, take a look at the choices for April’s reads and vote!

  1. >Thanks for visiting my blog earlier! I agree, sometimes we just need that second (or third) book to fix a spell of boredom. I'm having that problem right now with a classical book I've been reading since January… ugh.

  3. >I have an almost identical habit–boredom or excitement tends to make me shift gears into another book. It depends on how much attention I want to give to a book I'm reading (if it deserves it or not :D). Have a great weekend!

  5. >Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle.

  6. >No sooner than I said I am monogamous and I find myself with 3 books started! Here comes the panic. I'll see if I can finish one today, hurry up to finish the next by Wednesday and then resume the one that started in the first place. ugh.
