First, I have to share that I am in Reno! I’ve been a bowler for almost 30 years and every year my friend, her sister, and her mother and I bowl in the Women’s National Bowling Tournament. At least for the last ten plus years. So, I’m West-Coasting it!
Hello West Coast!
Now, onto the real subject matter. Reading!
I’ve posted before on my love of reading. It’s something I can always remember doing. Always.
But in the last few years I’ve developed a new talent. It’s called reading more than 1 book at a time.
If I remember right, this started when I bought my Kindle. I’m an avid bubble-bather as well, and I always read in the bathtub. My husband told me no way could I read my Kindle in the bathtub. (I am known to be somewhat clumsy!)
So, this is what happened. I’d start a book on my Kindle, but then when bubbly time came, I had to grab a real-live book. So began the love of reading two books at once.
I read a lot of different genres. So at first I think I would be reading a contemporary on my Kindle, so I would pick a historical for the bubbly time. Two different genres helped keep the stories straight.
But then I guess I got used to reading more than 1 book at a time. I found I could read 2 or 3 books at a time. In the same genre if I wanted. Ha! I was getting good at this.
I found I actually liked reading more than 1 book at a time. Being in more than 1 fictional world is fun and most times not confusing at all. :) Also, I travel lighter now than I used to, so I travel with my Kindle. If I’m mid-book on my ‘real-live’ book, it stays home until I return.
How about you? Do you find yourself reading more than 1 book at a time? If so, how did that start–and what genres do you like to read in.
