For today’s Monday Musing I want to talk about reading habits. I’m always curious to hear how other bloggers and readers read because it’s such a simple thing to do but everyone seems to have their own way of doing it – some people dog-ear their pages, some annotate, some keep their pages clean and pristine. It’s all so fascinating to me. So, I decided to start a new mini-segment under my Monday Musings category: Reading habits. I want to hear everyone’s reading quirks and share mine as well.
Today my reading habit question is: How many books do you read at once?
I often come across readers and bloggers who read more than one book at once. I always look at them with awe and respect. I’m the type of person who can never seriously read more than one book at a time for fear of getting things mixed up or taking away from the reading experience. I often find this to be a hindrance to my reading rather than an advantage, because I always have to get through my first book before starting a second. If only I could read more quickly! However, I do think that reading one book at a time has its perks. I can get fully immersed in the world I’m reading about with no other literary distractions. It allows me to focus on the story, the writing, the characters etc without having to think about anything else.
So, back to you! Do you read one book at a time like me, or do you always have a few books going at once? Is there a specific reason why you read this way? Let me know! I’m excited to hear everyone’s thoughts. 🙂
