Friday Blog Hop

The Crazy for Books blog hosts a weekly Friday blog hop where a question is set, you add your link and away you go, blog hopping and meeting new bloggers. If books are your thing I'd fully recommend you join the hop. It's a great way to find some brilliant book blogs and chat to some, passionate about book, people. 

This weeks question is:  "Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

As you can see from my sidebar with the Goodreads widget, I am currently reading two books. This is a new thing to me since I got an ereader at christmas. I read in the bath but am loathe to take it into the bath as I have dropped my phone in there in the past, so I have no intention of dropping my shiny new-ish iPad. Therefore I have a paper book going at the same time as an ebook.  I tend to make sure they are different genres so that I don't get confused with plot lines and sticking to this rule tends to make having two books on the go a fairly easy thing to do. 


  1. Hi! I'm a new follower from the hop and fellow writer. There's a creative blog hop that happens every weekend called the Weekend Creation Blog Hop. You might like it. I post about it every Friday.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I like your idea for not mixing genres! Stopping by from the hop. Happy Reading!

  3. 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

  4. Hopping through. I wonder if you can get waterproof covers for the iPad. I know they have them for an iPod.

  5. I read more than one book at a time, sometimes three, sometimes five!

    I read varied genres, have a truly eclectic taste in books. Feel free to explore my blog, browse mt reviews.

    Here is my Book Blogger Hop/Follow Friday post!

  6. Hi,

    Stopping by and now following, too. You have a lovely blog. Good thinking about the Ipad/water scenario... water and electronic devices never turn out well!

    Take care & happy reading,
    Ms C

  7. Gabrielle - Thanks for following! I've checked out your blog and like it. Have a great weekend!

    Chelle - Thanks for stopping by. It's the only way I can do two books otherwise I think my brain might melt!

    Howard - I do think it depends on the types of book you're reading. I think my limit is only two though.

    Alison - If they haven't made any yet, I think it's a great idea. How many people read or work in the bath!

    Gautami - Wow, I really don't know how you manage that amount of books! That's impressive. Happy reading!

    Mrs C - Thanks for dropping by and following. It's absolutely something I wouldn't want to mix with water!

  8. Hi! I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog!

    I can understand why you wouldn't want to take your iPad in the tub ... I would be so nervous about getting any water on it that it wouldn't be relaxing at all!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Found you via the hop. I like your blog and am your newest follower.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  10. Kristen - When I first got my ipad, I don't think I took it out of it's box for the first hour, so the bath is a definite no no :)

    Janna - Thanks for hopping by and following. I've also dropped by your blog :)

  11. Cool blog name.

    One-book-at-a-time lady here....

    ....I don't know how folks do it....I am amazed at how many people read more than one book at at time. :)
