It's time for another fun "Making Up For Monday" blog hop, as hosted by An Avid Reader; A Wannabe Writer.
This week's question is great:
How many books do you read at a time?
This is a real problem for me as I can't seem to focus on just one book at a time! I would say I typically have two physical books I'm reading at any given moment. Sometimes it's because I'll be reading on public transportation or have to take a book with me in a tote bag, and I don't want a brand-new-condition book banged up, so I'll grab a used paperback that isn't so pristine. Occasionally I might be reading a particularly heavy book (my copy of 1Q84 is a hardcover book and more than 900 pages, for example) so I want a smaller, lighter one to take with me someplace. And sometimes I just pick up another book off the shelf because it's what I'm feeling like at the moment. I really have to break that habit!
Another issue is that I'll have my couple of physical books on the go, and then I'll see a particularly tempting NetGalley email with an interesting-sounding book, and the next thing I know I've requested it, and ... well, you (may) know the rest! I guess it's all part of being an incurable bookworm.
Are you more disciplined about reading one book at a time - and finishing it before moving on to the next one?
