Juggling books.

Le livre défendu. – The forbidden book.

How did I get to this place of having four (or five) books on the go?

I used to be a single-book-at-a-time gal. Then I started listening to audiobooks, but that was mainly when driving or doing housework, so I typically had two books underway. I also need to balance library book due dates and book club assignments.

I’ve ended up with four books in my currently reading pile (five as of yesterday) and I’m finding it a little distracting.

Hardcover: The Demonologist by Andrew Pyper – For book club this Sunday.
Audiobook: Family Matters by Rohinton Mistry – checked out from library. Will expire.
Kobo: Why Men Lie by Linden MacIntyre – checked out from library. Will expire.
PaperbackS.E.C.R.E.T by L. Marie Adeline – passed on by a friend. Started it when Kobo lost power and it was in my bag. Completed and ready to give away.
Hardcover: Wife Dressing: The Fine Art of Being a Well-Dressed Wife by Ann Fogarty. Easy to dip in to for a chapter every now and then.

I use Goodreads to manage my books in progress, but most importantly, to keep track of the books I want to read.  It’s a terrifically helpful tool as well as an easy way for book lovers to dip a toe into social networking.

What are you reading these days?

  1. I like your comment about juggling books – I juggle way too many. I just finished Room by Emma Donoghue (excellent – finished in 2 days), and am working on George Saunders stuff and Dune once more.

    My problem is that I tend to buy more books than I can possibly handle. Instead of just finishing the double and triple stacked books on my shelf, I add more to the mess. Sigh.
