Book Blogger Hop


Friday's Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books.


This week's question:

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

I always have a few books going at any one time. There is always a book on my treadmill that I read only when I run. I also have a book on my Airdyne bike that I read when I bike. Then there is the library book that I am working on (these are usually a day or two of reading). And, sometimes I might have another book in progress as well. I also read a chapter book to my children each night, making yet another book I am reading. I also usually have something started on my Kindle. Unfortunately my other reading seems to take priority over that on the Kindle, so those books have been slower going for me.


This week during spring break I have been trying to get some extra reading in, but I'm not sure I have really accomplished that. I have yet to start a new book on the bike, but I do have four books in progress right now, and am still hoping to finish one off tonight.

I also hope that I will find some time to hop along to other book blogs this weekend before sitting down and thinking about school again!

Stopping by on the Book Blogger Hop. I, too, have noticed a significant diminishing of my reading pace. Here's hoping we can both find more time for reading!

Hopping through. I usually have a few books going at a time, but I can't exercise on the treadmill or elliptical. I bounce too much.

Stopping by for the hop. I love to read when I'm on the treadmill makes the time go by faster. You can see mine here. I'm a new follower.

I'm just discovering audiobooks. They're great motivation while cleaning the house! Enjoy spring break!

wow. That's a lot of books in circulation. I don't think I can focus on that many different books. It is hard enough when I am reading one book and things get hectic at school and I don't get back to it right away. I find myself having to go back to remind myself of the content of the book.

Visiting on the hop.

I wish I could do that - on the bike I mean. Thats a wonderful way of multi tasking.

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
