Book Blogger Hop: March 18-21


Time for the Book Blogger Hop! This weekly meme, hosted by Crazy for Books, is a great way to meet fellow bloggers and learn a little more about one another. This week's question comes from Somer at A Bird's Eye Review:

"Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

I am a one-book-at-a-time gal. I just feel that if I am reading more than one book at a time, that I am cheating on my books ... with one another! I know, it sounds crazy, but I like to give myself fully to a book and really know those characters. If I read more than one at a time, I don't think I would be able to understand the characters fully. Those of you who can read more than one book ... kudos to you!

  1. That's the first time I've ever heard it described that way - fully giving yourself to a book - I guess, it's true, we do commit to finishing a book when we start it...

    Here's my Book Blogger Hop: 3/18-3/21 post!

  2. I agree 2 or more books get me all frazzled! I would love anything to be able to read 3 different books at a time but alas... sorry for me!
    if I were a superhero... I would want the power of telepathic bibliophile: Where I can touch the spine of the book and know instantly what it is about. I would want to be able to switch it off.. :)

    Pop past the blog and say HI!

  5. Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.

    The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness - http://www.howardshermannet

  6. I can understand that view. Once engrossed in a book I hate to put it down, but time constraints mean that I often have to so I can manage to read two books at a time as long as they are different genres.

  7. Hopping through. I'm a multi-book girl, but I think it's smart to really devote yourself to a plot and characters.
