Books Every Which Where

I don't know if I had talked about this before. I keep a few blogs. I don't really understand this, but sometimes, I just want a different scene. Well, I'm the same with reading. I would read up to 15 books simulataneously without losing track. In fact, I got so good at it, I pushed it to 20 once, but I tend to forget plots and character at near 20.

The point is, I read so many because if the book is not compelling enough, my mind would wonder around. So, to keep my time from wasting, I'd just jump into the next book until next time. Also, it's a location thing. I'd have a book at any and every place I might have to wait. Bathroom. Kitchen. Car. Purse. Closet. Bedroom. Chairs. I have them every where. It got so bad, that one time I ask my 2 years old to get me a book and he said, "which book, Mommy?".

I'm wondering if anyone is as nutty as I am when it comes to reading. What's your quirks?

  1. I don't do that but i read about a 5 books a week.I would read more but sometimes my kids want dinner,have to work..blah blah blah. If i get 20 pages into a book and "don't get it" I will either read the end, or go 10 more pages. still no magic, and i toss it into the pile for the hospital book sale. sometimes this happens with books every one is crazy about, Like 1000 years of solitude and the purpose driven life.
    Anyway, my quirk is fast reading. And i hardly ever read fiction.
