I talk a fair amount on this blog about the importance of not biting off more than one can chew. But, if I took that seriously, you would think I'd wouldn't be in various stages in three different books, not to mention working on my ow writing at the same time. But, there am I, strolling on the fine line of insane.
I don't think I've ever been a one-book-at-a-time sort of girl. More often than not I've had some sort of reading that I 'had' to do, as it were, for various reasons, and then I'd have the reading of something I picked out for myself and actually planned to enjoy. And, sometimes, in addition to those, I'd have that book I planned to read and enjoy that I didn't want anyone to know I was reading and therefore could only read when no one could see me -- not an easy thing to achieve.
So, I guess it shouldn't be so surprising that I started with one book I 'had' to read, then picked up another that I wouldn't be able to carry around in public (yes, I do sometimes get embarrassed about what I read) because it sounded interesting. And then, of course, because I'm a masochist, I got distracted by something young, modern, and pretty.
Still, this shouldn't be a problem. I hope.
I usually don't have a problem reading more than one book at once. I'm pretty good at keeping plots and characters straight in my head. But I don't want the reading to interfere with my other responsibilities, and that might be harder to manage.
Are you juggling more than one book at the moment? Do you like to be reading more than one thing at once?
