Book Blogger Hop

17 Mar

Book Blogger HopI’m participating in this week’s Book Blogger Hop!

This week’s question is
Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?

My answer–

I always have at least two books going at a time– one audio book and one paper book.  I often have a book going on my Nook as well.

Sometimes I’ll be caught without the book I was reading, and start another (I keep an emergency backup book in my car at all times, except when my husband cleans out my car for me.).  Sometimes I’ll need to take a break from my book club book or a review book, so I’ll pick up something light and fluffy for a quick change of pace.  I’ll often have a non-fiction book that I’m reading slowly, no more than a chapter a day. Right now, I have a non-fiction book I’m reading over the course of the school year with a group from my daughters school.

I generally try to make sure that the books are of different genres, although even that isn’t always enough– I’ve had occasions where two very, very different books will have characters that are similar enough to confuse me, for instance.  Sometimes I just cope, sometimes I’ll postpone one book until I finish another.

Here’s what the Book Blogger Hop is:

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list!!

Drop a comment and say hello! Point me to your post and check out the other blogs on the hop.

    Hi Laura! Thanks for stopping by the blog and saying hi. I can’t get enough of books. I postponed my writing career for a year to allow myself to read every genre I could find after discovering ebooks work in Mexico. In 2008 I read over 223 books in various word counts. Of course, I have slowed down now that I am a full time writer and reviewer!

    I love how you came up with your blog name. It is very personal which make it a little more special. 🙂

    Coming through on the blog hop.

    I have no problem reading two books at a time though it does not happen often. I generally like to finish one and then start another

    I completely agree about the emergency book. I have the exact same thing going.

    I would love to follow you but I don’t see the option. Please let me know if you add a follower widget of some kind.

    I can’t listen to audio books. I find myself drifting and miss out on whole passages before I notice! Lol
    Have a great weekend!

    Thank you for following.
    I keep seeing people talk about emergency books for when the battery of their e-reader is low or when they finish a book sooner than planned. I should probably do this too.

    Hopping through. Love the idea of an emergency book. I can always read books on my phone or ipod so that’s basically my emergency book.

    I tend to always have more than one going at the same time as well – like you, I tend to mix the genres, so I have something going for every mood!
