Booking Through Thursday: Numbers Game

Some people read one book at a time. Some people have a number of them on the go at any given time, perhaps a reading in bed book, a breakfast table book, a bathroom book, and so on, which leads me to…

1. Are you currently reading more than one book?
2. If so, how many books are you currently reading?
3. Is this normal for you?
4. Where do you keep your current reads?

1. Of course!
2. Two - The Forgotten Garden and Bleak House (which is going much better than I had expected).
3. Yes. I’ve had my moments of reading four or five books at once, but now I’ve settled into a steady diet of two at a time.
4. The former is on my bedroom floor with the rest of my library books, while the latter is on the couch after having been retrieved from my handbag for evening reading.

Wow -- Bleak House -- I have seen the PBS miniseries and loved it, but I never thought to read the book.

I also saw the Bleakseries so made me kind of scared or reading the book

Jess: I loved it too - and I've surprised myself by enjoying the book. I thought it would be a chore, but it's not (thankfully).

Blodeuedd: The fact that it's Dickens made me scared of reading the book! I've got a few failed attempts at his works behind me. In fact I chose Bleak House because of the series - so that if I couldn't finish the book I'd at least know how it ended!

Two books probably isn't too bad, but I'm better with one book at a time :)
