A modest proposal.
I tend to get quite involved in whatever book I'm raeding, so I only really read one at a time.
For the most part, I will read only one at a time. Sometimes - like now - I will read two, as each one suits a different mood (one being a lighter and easier read than the other).
I only like to read one at a time. I find that I get more out of it that way.
One at a time... you get more into the story that way.
um I usually pick up everything in sight. Right now I'm reading like 2 ebooks(do they count?) and 3 normal books, which is, one Sidney Sheldon, BioStrike, and Queen of Babble
Well I tend to read ebooks more than than anything. But at the moment I am reading two books. One is an ebook, the author is a contact of mine from myspace, and I am reading a hard cover book as well. Bit hard to read an ebook in the bath....
I usually read one book at a time, but some days ago I was reading four books at once.......lol. Didn't even complete even one, and so I'm back at reading one at a time
Usually one or two novels, and a couple nonfiction (technical) books. Not counting books for school.
Typically one. Sometimes if I am reading one for work and one for pleasure, I may be engaged with two at the same time...but usually then, work's reading takes priority and I shift into "single novel reading" mode.
Love the "I can't read" option.
I prefer to read one at a time.
I read anywhere between 1 - 3 books at a time, depending on the time of year. If it's during school, I'm normally reading at least three books (with two of them being for school), but I try to only read one book at a time.
My average number is 3. I usually focus on 2 main, smaller books, with one giant, in-between, last-five-months book waiting in the wings. (For example, last year I read Christopher Moore's Fluke at the same time as Terry Pratchett's Reaper Man, while Catch-22 dangled in the background.)
I can juggle about 3 at a time. Any more and I forget to pick up one. The same rule applies when I'm beta reading. I think the most stories I ever juggled at once was 10, with 4 stories being betaed and 6 being read in dead-tree version. It wasn't pleasant.'
In any event, that's not counting nonfiction, which I tend to gobble down like candy (I read stuff from National Geographic, Reader's Digest, or DK publishing; big books with lots of pictures and diagrams).
I have a problem with starting one book and then picking up another while i'm still reading the other. Then every-so-often i'll wind my way into a third novel.
I try to read a few pages of a book before I buy one, so once i've enjoyed those pages I tend to keep reading and push off other books...
I'm in the middle of two right now.
I can only read one book at a time. I can't even read non-fiction and fiction at the same time because I get the books confused. xD
Not school related? Usually I read 1-3 at a time, though I've had times where I've had up to 10 on the go (I've always been able to keep good track of plots and can easily get back into the story after rereading a paragraph or two, so it's never bugged me to have multiple books on the go.)
at least 2 usually 4 or 5.
I have one on each level of the house. If my back gives out I like to have something to sit and do until it works again. So one in the living room and one in my computer room.
One in the van that stays there for long trips when Don gets tired and pulls over to power nap I pull it out and read.
One for the car so there is always something to read when waiting at stores or just bored.
In the summer I keep one out on my swing.
The one in the van is usually one that I have read umpteen million times before and it is just there because it doesn't matter if I can't remember the page or lose the book until the next summer.
I can't read.
Just kidding. I usually read two or three at a time. It's not that difficult for me to remember plots in different stories.
I tend to read about two at a time normally, sometimes on fictipn and one non fiction.
I read a bunch of different books at one time... it's pretty bad...
I used to be able to read 3 to 4 books at a time. Now, in my old age, I can only read 1. I don't even know how I was able to do it before...
only one at a time, for leisure reading... for work/research, could go up into double digits!
what is?... what are you proposing?
Probably about 2. I've read about three or four at one stage though. Easy to get confused!
I read whatever I'm in the mood for at the time. Generally, I tend to read about 5.
