Question!- (reading multiple books at a time)

Post by kaitlynden96 » 11 Jan 2017, 18:44

What are your opinions on reading multiple books at the same time?
Sometimes I can be guilty of this, when I get bored or distracted of whatever current book I have at the time, but generally I like to focus on one book at a time.
I want to know others thoughts on the topic!

I am almost always reading multiple books at a time. I guess it goes with the way I am feeling at a particular time that decides which one I am going to continue reading in. I actually can't remember when I last had only one book that I was working on.

I agree what I read kind of depends on how I feel.

In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." (Mortimer J. Adler)
