Booking Through Thursday

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…

  1. Are you currently reading more than one book?

  2. If so, how many books are you currently reading?
    3 - I am reading Still Life by Joy Fielding (mystery/suspense) and Never Give Up by Joyce Meyer (non-fiction). I'm also listening to 16 Lighthouse Road by Debbie Macomber.

  3. Is this normal for you?
    On occasion I will read a non-fiction book while reading a mystery or novel. I only read a chapter from the non-fiction book nightly (or every other night), so it may take a week or two to finish. I cannot read more than one novel (fiction, mystery, young adult, chick lit, etc.) simultaneously. I've tried several times and felt more stressed than relaxed. I tend to multitask almost every aspect of my life and I just do not want to add reading to that list. I am, however, amazed with people who can read several books at once.

    I can listen to an audio book while reading a novel. I only listen during my commute to and from work (and sometimes while cleaning if I'm bored with my current playlist on my iPod).

  4. Where do you keep your current reads?
    The novel is usually with me. I'm getting in the habit of taking a book with me wherever I go. The non-fiction book is usually on my coffee table near my couch. I do most of my reading on the couch. The audio book is either on a CD or in my iPod. I keep my iPod with me at all times too.
