I am a switcher. Yesterday, I think I had 5 books on my 'currently reading' shelf on Goodreads! I can't bear to leave a book unfinished, but then if I receive a book I really, really want to read I have to start straight away! Otherwise reading the other book just becomes a chore and I won't enjoy it. I also read a lot of comics/graphic novels and those are very quick to read so I will usually have one of those on the go too. I like to be able to choose which book I read depending on my mood!

Thanks for reading and for following! I love me some followers.

  1. Yessss, I pick a book based on my mood too. That's why I have a couple going at a time. Hehe. Thanks for stopping by. New follower.

  2. OH yeah, spot on! I'm like you too, always switching between books, just can't stand reading just one.

  3. That's a great idea to pick a book based on your mood. I always read just one book at a time but I might try switching it up a bit.

  4. I pick based on my mood too, typically! I've always wanted to be able to read more than one at a time like this and just...can't.

    Thanks for stopping by LIO!

  5. When I am reading something very boring, I tend to pick another book. Also, if there is a audio book, then there will be more than one book - audio book while travelling, and kindle while at home.

    Thanks for stopping by! Am following you now!

  6. You make a good point. I do that sometimes too! And if I'm reading a couple and there is one that is really grabbing me, I'll set the others aside to finish it!

  7. Wish I had your reading stamina..lol! But nowadays I can only read one book at a time. Love your kitty, Boots, he's so adorable! New follower and thanks for stopping by my blog earlier on!

  8. You and I are kindred spirits! I read several books at once. Do you have unofficial categories for yours- the "dense book" for when you're at your word-absorbing peak, the "fluff" for right before you fall asleep?

  13. New follower - thanks for stopping by.

    I never could commit myself to just one book . . . if I'm not in the mood for dragons and magic today, I'd rather switch gears to space travel or a black-ops assassination than allow my mood to ruin the first read.

  15. I used to be exactly like you, but because my moods would change over the course of the day, I would bring all five books around in my purse! It was a heavy habit. It came down to buying more eBooks, or reading fewer at a time. I guess I'm a traditionalist, because I picked the latter.

    Thanks for the comment and follow! New GFC follower!

  18. Ooh...I didn't even think about graphic novels and kids books...I usually sit down and read a whole stack of those at once, then turn around and knock out the reviews.

  21. I think I would be way to confused by 5 books, unless they were all drastically different. I do agree I have to read books for me every once and a while or I would burn out. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog today! New Follower :)

  22. Yay for comics! I am a big fan myself and always have a few ready to go. What series are you reading? I am always looking for more graphic goodness to consume.

  24. Five books at once? Jeesh, I thought I was bad just cheating on the one book. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. I just started following you back via GFC

  25. I totally read books depending on my mood too, but I can't read more than one. I feel bad not finishing a book before starting another one. Thanks for stopping by! Following back!

  27. I'm definitely a book switcher like you! I think my record is having seven books going at once! Though usually, it's more like three or four.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  28. I generally am reading only one but occasionally I'll add in one or two when it's review crunch time. Thanks for visiting and becoming a follower of my site! I'm now following you back via GFC. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  30. Hi!
    Hmm, maybe I was wrong earlier. their are rare times when an amazing book arrives in the mail and i just have to read it. But usually going back and forth will just become confusing. Following back!

  31. We're the same. I always have 4+ books on my currenly reading shelf on GR. And I love reading comics/graphic novels (mostly manga), too. :)

  33. I sometimes read more books than one at a time because reading becomes a chore sometimes, too, when I'm anticipating another book. Most of the time, though, I just concentrate on one book.

    Thanks so much for following me, I'm following back! Have a nice weekend!

  34. I'm a lot like you! Sometimes I only read one, sometimes I read up to 3!! Especially if I have to read them for review :P
    thanks for stopping by!
