I saw this on a blog I follow and thought it might be fun to participate. I hope my "reviews" (or lack thereof) don't bother people! If you're reading this because of the Hop, I don't review books in depth or describe the plots much because as a reader I don't like having too much of a book given away before I start to read. I like to discover the book for myself and not anticipate something happening that I read about in a review. In fact, in the last several books that I read, there were many little surprises that I was very glad I discovered on my own and didn't know them before I started reading. So my apologies if you prefer more in-depth reviews than what I provide here!

This week's question is: "Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"
My answer: Actually, if you read the post just previous to this one, in a happy coincidence I answered this - I am in a terrible habit of having more than one book in progress at one time! I always mean to stop and concentrate on a single book but there are just so many interesting books in the world it's hard. The main reason I think I do this is because I'm lazy, so I tend to have an "upstairs book" that I read before I go to sleep, and a "downstairs book" that I read in the living room or at the table in the dining room. I usually forget to carry around the book I'm reading so I get another one that's nearby if I'm on a certain floor of the house, etc. Or I keep bringing home the 50 cent Library Sale paperbacks and there is usually at least one that I don't want to wait to read so I might just start because I can't wait and then before I know it there are a few books. Lately I've been concentrating on finishing as many of these 50 cent books as possible so I am trying to read one at a time, but I suspect I'll never entirely break this habit!
