Today's Booking through Thursday is a blast from the past.
For something different, I’m borrowing a question from … here! One of the very first questions ever at Booking Through Thursday. Back from 2005 when Laura owned the blog but, because it was so new, it didn’t get as many responses as it does now … so, why not revisit?
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?
I'm a one book woman and yes, it is normal for me. I only read one book at a time, giving my undivided attention to the story. Since I'm a very visual person and have a tendency to see the story as it flows along, I can only read one book at a time. If I try to read more than one book at a time, the stories blend together and the movie in my brain becomes confusing.
I've experimented and had the bathroom book, the purse book, the whatever place book. Just doesn't work for me. So now the magazines - Bookmarks, Edutopia, Writer and Writers Digest reside in the bathroom for easy reading. The rest of the books reside next to my bed on the nightstand waiting patiently while I'm involved with my current read. I'm a fast reader (most of the time) so they don't have too long to wait.
How about you? How many can you handle at one time?
