Lovelies, the fact that it is May makes my brain hurt. That, and my head hurts from being baked all day. Which at least in this case doesn’t matter, because it’s the third Saturday of the month, so as usual we have our special reader guest of the month!
Good day all! My name is Jennifer and the lovely Limecello has given me time to chat with her followers. She should know better! Here is just a little about me:
I love books! Shocking I know. I also have a major addiction to shoes. It really is an illness as I buy shoes and then have nothing to wear them with. I am a marathon shopper. I will shop whenever I can, at work, home, on my iphone, just about anywhere.
So, enough about me and my issues. I have a question that has plagued me for some time now. I am the type of reader that can only read one book at a time. For those out there that read more than one at a time, HOW DO YOU DO IT???? How do you keep the stories straight? I get confused enough as it is without the added book(s) thrown in.
Someone please help me understand this craziness! It boggles my small mind.
What are your thoughts? Are you a juggler or a one at a timer?
Inquiring minds need to know! Well, probably just me, but you never know who else is out there wondering the same thing.
Thanks to Limecello for allowing my crazy rambling on her blog. You can come and visit me at my blog. I have reviews of books, as well as things that I find cool.
Keep on reading!
Confess! What are your reading habits? [And if any of you would like to – or be willing to – be featured as a special reader guest, please do let me know! <3] Incidentally, those aren’t covers Ms. Jennifer told me to put up. There were no suggestions so I just picked what I’d like to read soon. 😀 Hopefully they aren’t too far out there!
I can read more than one book at a time, but I don’t like to do that. I always resent the book that I don’t like quite as much.It winds up diminishing both books. Juggling three or more requires therapy and psychotropic drugs.
One at a time. I have too many distractions in everyday life to try and keep more than 1 plot and one hero and heroine in my head. I am definately not a multi-tasker.
Mostly I read only one book at a time. But there are times when I read more than one. Usually in those times, it’s when I have book(s) to read for review and they’re due while I’m reading something else…or…I’m reading a review book and something I’ve been dying to read is out. In those times, I just take careful notes of the review book(s) so that I don’t forget plot points, character traits, and things that I liked or didn’t like. Taking notes helps me to not get them mixed up.
Enjoyed getting to know you!
I go back and forth but for the most part – at least 95% of the time – I read one book at a time. I find a book easier to savor that way. Since I do read quite a few books for review I would feel I was doing a disservice to the author and publisher if I didn’t put all my concentration into that one book.
Books that I want to read get pushed to the back burner as a window opens up that I have a few days to myself, etc. then I try to squeeze them in without feeling guilty.
