Do you take breaks while reading a book? Or read it straight through? (And, by breaks, I don’t mean sleeping, eating and going to work; I mean putting it aside for a time while you read something else.)
I have three books on the go right now. Sometimes I have more. I have tried sticking to one book, but it just doesn’t work like that for me, I seem to need the variety. I’ll be reading one book and find myself wanting to read something different, which is why I often have one book of non-fiction and a variety of fiction at hand to turn to. But there always comes a point in each book where that book takes over and I read it through to the end without interruption from the others. At the moment it’s The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters that is taking precedence, closely followed by Raven Black by Ann Cleeves, with Being Shelley by Ann Wroe trailing behind in third place.
It can become difficult if I have put a book aside for a while and then I have to start reading it again from the beginning! It gets even more difficult when I’ve been to the library and want to start all the books I’ve just borrowed.
And so it goes on …
