As I have mentioned here, I've been reading a lot lately, and making an effort to vary my choices. In fact, last summer, I intentionally read books I would have normally passed by for one reason or another, just to "shake things up," and really reaped the benefits by discovering terrific books and new authors.
But the problem is I am finding that the more I read, the more I want to. Which means I keep picking up books and starting them--before I've finished the one(s) I am reading. Like right now, for instance, I am 3/4 of the way into a book of newspaper columnist's reflections, 1/4 into a fiction novel, and while they are both very captivating, yesterday I found myself reading the prologue to Libba Bray's BEAUTY QUEEN, and thinking "I'll just read a couple chapters" before going to back to the other books.
Sheesh! I am starting to think this is too much of a good thing...that I need to slow down and read one at a time!
So I thought I'd toss this out to our YA Fresh readers: do you find yourself reading multiple books, too, or are you a one-at-a-time reader?
