In this case, I’m talking about being in the middle of reading multiple books at a time. This is a thing that I do. My average is 3 books at a time.
Why exactly I do this is because I have different moods for what I’m reading. Sometimes I just really want to breeze through a mindless chick lit novel while other times I am so down for complicated subplots and dragons. There are even times when the main character of a book will just be annoying me too much and I will set that book down and pick up another because there is never a shortage of books in my house.
Another reason that just popped into my head is convenience. I am the kind of person that will just start a new book if the one I was reading at the time was in my room and I was on the couch. This way, I can just leave a book in all my reading locations and not have to wonder where I set it down last. You could come into my house and find a book on the kitchen table, beside my bed, on the floor near the couch, in my backpack and even sometimes in the bathroom.
It almost feels weird to only have one book on the go but that rarely happens anyway. There’s nothing worse than not knowing what to do with yourself once you’ve finished a book so being in the middle of two other stories makes the brain shift that much easier. Just as long as no characters have the same name, it’s quite simple to keep everything straight in my head.
Question: what are your book reading habits? Are you a big book juggler? Do you have any weird reading locations? Please share in the comments!
