Book Blogger Hop #2: Reading Multiple Books at Once

Created by Billy: Each week the “hop” will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.


This weeks question is: Do you like to finish one book before starting the next or do you read several at once? (submitted by Cathy @ What Cathy Read Next)


When I was extremely young, I could only focus on one book at a time.


When I was 14 I found out how to speed read and pursued finishing books individually rather than multitasking.


When I was 15, my reading slowed down. I would pick up 20 books but only finish 1.

I wonder why… (hint: I got addicted to IG and FB).


Now I’m 19, and have found my balance (that suits me for the current situation in my life: commuting):


I can read multiple books at a time. BUT:

  • I must have them in different formats.
  • Only one from each format.
  • I must try my hardest to finish reading all of them by the end of the week. 


This stops me from getting lazy and only relying on audiobooks, when I have a bazillion library paperbacks with my name on them!


Are you a multitasking reader?

  1. It was only when I was in elementary school where I was strict about reading one book at a time. As I got older, I started to read several books at once. I’ve found that I generally need the books to be in different genres or formats. The only exception to the genres is when I’m in the last 50-100 page stretch of a long novel and have started reading another.
