Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

This week on Book Blogger Hop, hosted at Crazy-for-Books, we are asked: Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?

A:
Typically, I'm a one-book-at-a-time kind of girl. I like to really get into a story and analyze it in depth. It's not that I can't handle two stories at a time - as many of you know, university makes us talented multitaskers in all aspects of life. I just prefer devoting my reading hours to one book at a time. However, I do see the allure of reading two or more books at once... I'm guilty of such reading habits when non-fiction is in question.

Actually, on second thought, I'm currently reading two books simultaneously... Hmm, who would of thought this answer would be so complicated!


Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have fun hopping =)

  2. Happy Hop!

    I'm pretty much the same way as you - I like to stick to one book. I find that usually when I have two books going, it's because one is boring me and I end up not finishing it anyways!

  3. Me too - am a one-book-at-a-time kind of girl, except in special circumstances :)

  4. Thanks for stopping by Starting the Next Chapter. I have added you to my following queue. The book you mentioned is very interesting. I would recommend it, especially if you're interested in history. It really makes you think.

  5. Hopping by .... I have TOO many books going at once. Wish I could be more restrained like you --- but then you're at University. So you're lucky to have at least that one or two to read for fun. I will never pick up a textbook again for a class-for-credit. So liberating!

  6. I do read a couple books at a time but didn't do it as a regular practice before blogging. See my post on my blog My Bookshelf.

  7. Tell me about it. lol. I know exactly what you mean, because most of the time it takes all I have to concentrate on the one book I'm reading so I don't character's and plots mix-matched. Although, now that I think about, I'm starting to see the advantage of a really good cross-over. lol.

    Like, maybe Katniss from the Hunger Games trilogy meets Cassia from the Matched series. Y/Y?! lol. It's an interesting theory.

    And, I really like your blog. Totally too cute and of course, you know I'm following

  9. I'm actually not a big fan of ebooks but since I'm an international blogger I really have no choice since some publishers does not send review copies internationally. That's why I read one or more books at once :p

    thanks for visiting my blog!

  10. I read multiple books at a time. It must be that multitasking thing I picked up ever since the end of high school, when all kinds of stuff was thrown at us at the same time!

    I'm an old follower. I hope you can stop by my hop!

  12. Thanks for making the trek over to Gabriel Reads and thanks for the follow. I look forward to reading your posts as well.

  13. Focusing on one story allows for us to really analyze the book's content and what we liked and didn't like. That's me, too, though usually only in the case of novels. =) I'll read either a graphic novel or anthology right along with the novel.

    Happy hopping and reading!

  14. New follower from the hop! Unfortunately, I'm one of those odd readers that like to read/listen to multiple books at once. Have a great weekend!

  15. I usually read one book at a time but things happen. So at times I'm reading multiple.

  17. I've tried to be a one at a timer, but that usually doesn't work out. :)

  18. I'm a multi-booker but I understand the benefits of reading one book at a time.
    Even though I have multiple books going at once I usually devote more time to one specific books and the rest are just there to fill the gap in free times.

    I just saw your link on the blog hop and thought I'd stop by but I also wanted to say I'm hosting a give away if you want to come check it out!

  19. 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

  20. Hello! Your new follower here, hopping on your blog!
    It is indeed a hard question to answer! Even tho I consider myself one-book-at-a-time person, I did at times read more than one book simultaneously.

    Let's connect! I'm over here, at Bookish

  21. Hopping through. I used to be a one book girl, but lately it's hard to just stop at one. I have 4 going right now.

  22. Hi! I love your blog name! You've combined everything I love into one name!lol...

    Thanks for stopping by the blog and for the follow. I am now following you.

    I fully understand how it is hard to say no to all the books out there and to only read one at a time. But as I said on Embrace your oddities, I'm going to give it a try. Maybe I'll be a better reviewer for it.

    I just wanted to let you know that I post a guest author spot on the blog today to help a debut author. I'm sorry this might sound tacky, but I am trying to round up my fellow book lovers to help out. Raymond Rose is talking about his two releases and giving away both to one lucky commenter this weekend.

    I hope you have a great evening and weekend! thanks!

  25. I can only manage two at once and they have to be different genres to do that. Happy reading!

  29. Thanks for stopping by earlier, I don't think I could read only one at a time, but it makes it hard as I have to read uni books as well as for fun. Most times the fun takes over!

  30. Thank you for your wonderful comment :).

    I totally get what you mean about reading one at a time. I wish I could dedicate myself like that and only do when I seriously love the novel :P.

    Following you back! :)
