Feature and Follow (15)


Here's this weeks question:

 

Do you read more than 1 book at a time, and if so, how, like a certain amount of pages per book before moving on to the next one in the queue?

It's funny that this is the question this week, because I have been contemplating this a lot. I have always been a monogamous reader...that is until recently. I use to only allow myself to read one book, and even if I wasn't enjoying it I would struggle through it, or worse stop reading for a while till I was back in the mood to finish it. I don't know why I did this, maybe I was afraid that I'd get books/characters mixed up, I don't know. Recently, though I have started reading multiple books at once, usually no more than 2 or 3 at a time, and it's actually made reading more enjoyable. I'll usually start reading a 2nd book, if I start to get a little bored of the first one or if there's a book I'm just really pumped to read. Overall I feel like I actually read more this way and I almost always go back to the book that I started to finish it :)

  1. Yes, I kind of love it when you can mix and blend genre's, while reading more than one book and switching over from one to another can sort of give you a little bit more of a break from one you're reading if it's too emotionally intense or whathave you. :)

      I honestly can't believe I stayed book-monogamous for so long haha. I'm really like being able to switch up between books depending on my mood, and being able to take a break without forcing myself to keep reading a book I'm just bot feeling.

  2. I do that sometimes too. Usually it's two different genres. So if I get tired of one, I have another one depending on my mood.

    1. I also try and read to different genres at a time, otherwise I don't think my brain could cope haha. Like you said it also means more variety depending on what I'm in the mood for :)

  3. I carry my mp3 player at work and listen to audio books all day, but at home I have hard copies and my tablet. So I always have at least 2 books going.

    1. I'm the same, I always take my tabet to work so I can read on my lunch break. So much easier than carrying a heavy book around. That's usually how I end up reading more than 1 book at a time haha.
      Thanks for stopping by, I'll be sure to check out your FF

    1. Haha I coming to the realization that polygamy in the book world is something most people do. I can't believe I waited so long to try reading more than one book at once!

  5. The more you read, the more your brain will adapt to the information. Soon you'll find that you can keep the plots of 2 or even 3 books completely separate in your head.

    1. I'm actually not having too much trouble reading 2 books at the moment, but I usually make sure they are from different genres. I think I might start getting lost if I read 2 contemporary books haha.
