Blog Hop (9)

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a great way to network your blog and discover some new amazing blogs.  It is hosted at Crazy-for-Books.

This week's question:  Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?

My Answer:  It depends. For me, the beginning of a book is the hardest for me to get through so usually I'm switching off between two books until one book grabs me.  As soon as I'm "in" the book, I don't read anything else until it's finished.  Then there are books that are hard to get through because of the subject matter, in that case, I will continue to read another book at the same time.  Also, I'm almost always rereading a book.  For example, right now I've started Thirst by Christopher Pike, but I'm really into Werewolf in Manhattan by Vicki Lewis Thompson; and I'm rereading (for the umpteenth time) The Iron King by Julia Kagawa.  

Quick Recap:

Dancing in the Hop Hop fashion!

I have been trying to read one book at a time this year. Success rate is about 75%.

I think that's a great idea. It's like a contest but with books. Seeing which one can connect with you first!

I stopped by from the hop. Love your banner. I juggle everything else in life but can't manage more than one book at a time.

Jessica said...

Making my way through my blogs, hopping by to say hey and see what everyone else is saying!

I tend to just read one book at a time. I just prefer it that way!

Here's my Friday Hops

Have a GREAT weekend!

Hopping through. I usually read several books at a time, but like you I only read one when I'm really into it.

Coming through on the blog hop.

I have no problem reading two books at a time though it does not happen often. I generally like to finish one and then start another.

Tribute Books Mama said...

Only one book at a time for me, stop and see mine.

Blueicegal ♥ said...

I can read a couple at a time, more time consuming though. Love the layout by the way!

My answer to this weeks question is here:


Elizabeth said...

I am amazed at how many people read more than one book at at time.

Stop by my blog for a giveaway of LINEN QUEEN courtesy of Sarah from Hachette Books and to see my answer to this week's Blog Hop question.

Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.

The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness - http://www.howardshermannet

I'm definitely a one book at a time person!

Frosy said...

When I can't get into a book I finish the rest of the books I'm reading, if I'm reading another books, and focus on that. If I still can't get into it I leave and move on.

Have a great weekend!

Hopping through. I was only a one book girl until I got an eReader, now I manage two but that's my limit.

Have a great weekend.

Hopping by!

I read more than one book at a time, sometimes three, sometimes five!

I read varied genres, have a truly eclectic taste in books. Feel free to explore my blog, browse my reviews. I follow via google reader NOT GFC!

Here is my Book Blogger Hop/Follow Friday post!

That's a good method, I think, switching it up until one of the two books grabs you. I like it, I shall try it sometime.

Have a great weekend
