I'm one of those readers, anymore, who is reading one book, but cheats on said book with about four or five others on the side. I used to be a monogamous reader, sticking to one book faithfully through and through, even if it was a slow starter (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was like this for me; I found the beginning of that book incredibly boring). In fact, I used to get very annoyed with people who would read more than one book at a time. I always thought, "How can they keep them all straight in their imagination?" Nowadays, I have a book on the nightstand, one in the car to read while I'm waiting at the bus stop, three on the end table next to my reading chair (which one I pick up depends on my mood). It's like a bad episode of Sister Wives.
Here are the books that are currently in rotation:
|In the Car: Via (Hey, it's in the car). I also just started this book, which I find pretty damn funny so far. I appreciate the snarkiness of the narrator and the cultural critique being offered up on the rich beyond rich. Probably because I'm not, nor will I ever be one of them.|
