Immediately! Finishing a book gives me a bit of a high and I can't wait to find another book to get addicted to.

I usually have a couple of books waiting in the wings; so I pretty much start another book right away...especially if I really didn't like the last book I read. Maybe I should get out more :-)

I start reading a new book immediately after finishing one. I am a "serial reader". I usually have 2 or 3 books going at a time, but since I joined up here, I've only been reading one at a time.

I vary a lot.

If I'm reading a set of books for an assignment, I read back to back. If it's on my own time I wait a bit depending on spare time and mood (an hour, a week, or a month). I have no real patterned behavior.

I don't wait. I just grab another from my TBR pile. Especially since I have a book club that sends me a new book once a month

I' ve always loved reading. I can't stay without reading some pages of a book a day. So I don't wait at all. I start reading another book immediately.

Immediately - I always like to have 1 or 2 new books on standby, for when I complete the current one.

Sometimes I wait a while, just depends on what's available or what has caught my attention.

Not much, a couple hours. Sometimes weeks.

It really depends on what all I have going on in my life and how much time I have to read. Some times I will start immediately on another book and sometimes I will go days sometimes even weeks without starting another book.

Usually I just jump right into the next book unless the one I just finished was really good, when that happens I wait until I can find something intriguing enough to start reading.

I read multiple books at one time. I currently have 10 books I’m reading. Each one gets the same number of pages read every other day.

I've tried to do that in the past, but I always end up mixing the stories up in my head.
