Booking Through Thursday
One book at a time? Or more than one? If more, are they different types/genres? Or similar?
(We’re talking recreational reading,here— books for work or school don’t really count since they’re not optional.)
- Normally I would read one book at a time. It better for me to concentrate in one book so that I can devour it and enjoy it much better. A better way for me to get a feel for the characters and better understanding. If I read more than one, it hard to concentrate on both sometime. Because than I won't enjoy both books. Instead I might enjoy the other book more than the other one. So it won't be fair to the other (yes I treat my books like they're my children *grin*). I don't have problem remembering what happen from the book, where I left off if I picked it up again. But I do however would forget some small details if waited too long to get back to it. I want to be able to enjoy reading both of my favorite series books (yes I'm a big fan of a series books *grin*).
If I read more than one books, it normally is in a different genres. I read variety of genres book, but I mostly prefer romantic suspense, adventure/actions or comedies romance. My friend Darla, have taught me to appreciate all genres and to try different things. No matter if you don't like the book or genres, we just have to appericate the authors for their hard work on writing the book :)
But lately, even though I normally do read one book at a time, it seem I've been reading two books at the same time. Because 1.) I'm doing a re-read with someone else so that we can get ready for the next installment (the latest) books to come out. Or 2.) I'm doing a reading along together with someone else for fun. And last but not least 3.) It for the Books Challenge. *phew!* That seem a lot of reason...hehehe.
How about you? One book at a time or more than one?
