Follow Friday - 30/03/12

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can read. Each week participants are given a prompt. This week's is: 

Q: Do you read one book at a time or do you switch back and forth between two or more?

Up until about a year ago, I was all about getting through one book at once. If I was really struggling with the book then sometimes I'd put it aside and read a different one before going back to it to finish it off, but I wouldn't alternate between books.

It's a very different story now!

Nowadays I tend to have several books on the go at any one time. The masterful way I have of choosing between them is putting a different book in each room in the house (drives the bf nuts - heh) and seeing which room I'm in when the reading bug bites! I also have one book on the Kindle and at least one audiobook on the go at all times. If one book catches my attention more than the others then I'll devote all my time to that one, else I'll switch back and forth.

How about you?

Happy hopping and have a great weekend!


  1. Very interesting way of separating your books!

    I used to have a difficult time concentrating on a book while I'm moving at the gym, but after a few times adjusting, it's like second nature.

    Happy Friday!


  2. I like that idea. Having a diff book in each room and just reading when the mood hits. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Wow! That's a lot! I prefer one book at a time. I feel like nowadays if I were to do more than one, I would get all confused with storylines and character developments, stuff like that that I tend to put into my reviews.

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  4. I think that's a fantastic idea. Someone on the hop called them "emergency book". One in the car, one in the... and so on.

  5. I do something similar. My e-reader rarely leaves my side, but I have paperbacks stashed around the house too.

  6. I only read one book at a time but I love the idea of having a different book in every room!

  7. omg that's too funny a different book for each room. wonderful idea!

  8. Im a one book person currently but with so many books that I want to read now, I may give the book juggling a try! Thats a great idea having a book in each room!

  11. Wow. That's a different method for keeping several going at one time. I'm mostly a one at a time person. Thanks for the follow! I'm following back through linky and NB!

  12. lol it's quite like that for me too. but I try to not start a lot of books because It's difficult to follow everything after that. 2 is perfect.

  13. that's a really great idea to have one book in each room. I live in a dorm so I only have one room lol but I might try that later in life.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  20. I read a million books at the same time.

    OK, that's an exaggeration, but check out my goodreads page. You'll see how many I've got going on.

    I only started doing this when I was in the middle of a serious book but wanted something fluffy and of course, when ebooks came along.

  21. That's a great system you have going there! I may have to do that myself. :) Thanks for hopping by for FF!

  22. We're the same. :) Currently I'm reading:
    print book: Divergent, an Agatha Christie book (rereading)
    audiobook: Starters
    ebook: Defiance by Shelly Crane + a few M/M books

    Thanks for stopping by my FF, following you back now.
    And thanks for the great Paris tips!
