Do you devote all your attention to one book or have a few on the go at any one time?
…And can you tell me your reasons why you read this way and how it works for you?
I have always been a ‘one-book-at-a-time’ person, devoting all my attention to one book. I have recently tried to have one fiction book on the go and one non-fiction book…but seem to gravitate to the fiction book. I think this question has arisen because I’m on page 422 of a 600 ish page novel that I’m not overly impressed with…but feel like I simply must finish it.
I’d love to be the sort of person that has several books on the go, but I’m wondering whether this is just because I’m bored by the current book I’m reading and it would give me a reason to put it down, whilst not entirely giving up on it. (I also have a few books that I can’t wait to read, sitting patiently on the shelf) This led me to wonder about my fellow jellies.
Are on a one book person or a multiple book reader? If the latter, does it not feel rather messy or perhaps like your cheating on the other books?? :-)
Thank you in advance x
