Mon Photobucket

Did everyone enjoy Super Bowl Sunday?  Did your team win?  What were your favorite commercials?
 We laughed at the Dorito ones, especially the dog and the bark collar and I just love the ETrade commercials with the little ones sitting in front of a computer...Adorable !!
  Now on to memes....One Persons Journey Through A World of Books is now hosting "Its Monday, What Are You Reading.....Thank You for hosting Sheila !!

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about a random book. I’ve seen several bloggers mention reading multiple books this week. Do you frequently read more than one book at a time? Do you try to limit this to a certain number? Do you have different books for different purposes/topics?
I always have, and still do, read just one book at a time.  I feel that once I start a book, especially those for pure enjoyment, I want to give that read my full attention.  I would be afraid that if I read more than one, I would have to reread pages to recall characters, plot, etc.  I want to thoroughly enjoy my current read.

I always read more than one book but if one of them really grabs my attention I do stick with it until the end.

Too bad Open Doors didn't work out for you. Hopefully you have better luck with the books you have coming up this week!

Now and Then is a good one. I have Doors Open sitting on my stack, will have to see if I get into it or not.

I read quite a lot of books in a week but I always read books 1 at a time. I don't know how people manage to read 3/4 books at the same time & keep track of which one is which LOL :o)

Hope you have a great week!

I usually have just one "active' book that I am reading, but often have several "inactive", put-aside-for-the-moment books lurking nearby.

oh no i hate when you can't finish a book! I haven't read any Ian Rankin. Lucky you on winning 7th Heaven :)

Kris said...

Wow, I didn't know about Musings Monday, thanks for introducing me to a great new meme.
I feel the same way about reading just one book at a time. I need to finish one before I can start another.

Gwen said...

I heart M.C. Beaton!
