Book Blogger Hop Friday! 3/18/11

This weekly bookish meme is hosted by The Crazy Bookworm

Question of the Week: "Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?" 

This is a great question and one that I certainly wondered about.  I know some bloggers have several going at once and, honestly, I don't know how they can do it.  Perhaps if I were a student, I would and could because it would be necessary.

Before blogging, I didn't read more than one book at a time.  Now that I blog, I've gotten so I have two books going at once, rarely three.  I find it confusing otherwise.  I can read a non-fiction and a fiction book at the same time because there's often a great variance between them.  I feel that in order to do justice to the author and his/her work, I need to be focused and I can't if I have too much going on.  Maybe I'm just not that great of a multi-tasker.

How about you?  Do you read several books at once?  How do you keep the plots and characters separate and clear if you do?  Do you read a non-fiction and a fiction book at the same time?  Leave your answers here in the comments and remember to link up with The Crazy Bookworm too!

Have a great weekend!!


  1. i have never tried reading more than one book. my sis in law reads a lot and i will see three or four books on her floor. i've also noticed when we do read the same book and share them she gets storyline confused. I don't intend on trying it either.

  2. Yeah I have to read something for school sometimes but I don't use the same frame of mind when I read things for school as I do for my own reading, so I still count it as one book at a time. :D

  3. I always read more than one book at any given time. I feel kind of lost if I'm only reading one. At the moment I'm reading one on my Kindle (non fiction), one pbook at lunch at work and one pbook at home. I never find it confusing :-)

  4. I can only read one book at a time plus an audio. If I do more than that, I get too confused.

  5. Hi ,
    I only read a book at a time, I often us a non fiction read as a break between fiction.
