Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme of all things bookish. This weeks question is: 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 am a moody reader and often don’t feel like reading the book I am currently reading. Because of this I often have more than one book on the go at the same time. I try to have a fiction book and a non-fiction book going on at the same time. I also often have an audio book going. While I was working I also had a book for my handbag, one I could pick up and read while waiting for the bus or in the lunchroom/while the kids slept (my second to last job I worked the back shift and I was often the only person on a break, my last job was at a nursery school and while the kids had their nap and after I had cleaned up what I could I was welcome to read, just one of the things I loved about that job).
My family tree is filled with bookworms. The habit of several books on the go is one that I have come by honestly. Everyone has more than one book on the go at the same time. It is just the way we do things.
