How many books do you read at once?

It’s the age-old problem for readers, there are so many fantastic books to read and not enough time to read them all in.

I’ve always been a ‘two book’ reader – in fact when I was younger I’d often have 3 or 4 on the go at once.

Two isa comfortable number for me at the moment though – I read one hard copy book and one kindle book at the same time.

The kindle is useful while waiting for my youngest to fall asleep and for reading in bed as I can turn the light out and use the kindle light to read comfortable by. It’s also easier to handle while laying down.

I like to have a second physical book as well that I read during the day or on the sofa in the evening.

Sometimes one or the other is so good that it takes over my reading for a bit and sneaks into the others time, but generally speaking two books on the go at once is my preference.

  1. I much prefer to read one at a time. At the moment though I’m reading 2 books definitely and have about 3 books that are half read but that I would really like to finish. I just hope they don’t get left too long or I’ll have forgotten where I’m up to. Most are e-books as I’m not that keen on reading physical books anyway.

  2. Listening as well is a good way to add another book in! I tend to stop paying attention and missing chunks of story though 😂 as a result I don’t often use audiobooks.

  3. That’s the trouble when one ‘takes over’ it can take a bit to get back into the swing of the one/s that get left.
    Hope you manage to pick them up again x

  4. I’m normally two – one for commuting and one for at home – but due to the current climate, I’ve generally switched to just one that I’ll keep going with until it’s done. That being said, I have just done two at once, but it did tend to mean that one got ignored apart from random moments on it. I’m in awe of the people who can read several!
