Book Blogger Hop

It’s that time again! I was kind of upset to miss last week’s because the question was awesome, but I’m back again!
This week’s question:

Do you read only one book at a time or do you have several going at once?
I’m honestly an all at once kinda gal. For one thing, I get most of my books from the library, and when I bring them home I’m excited about all of them at once, and I have trouble deciding which to start first. I’ll often start one, put it down, and when I come back later I’ll be like “But I wanna read that one first!” so I’ll pick it up instead. There’s also the factor of mobility – I have a rather large “purse” so that I can fit at least one book in, but if the book is a particularly large hardback, it sometimes won’t fit with my planner, journal or whatever else I’m bringing with me. So I pick out another one and bring that instead. Finally, I also usually have one started on my iPod, because I’ll often have long rehearsals that I don’t play much on, and it’s so nice to have a book on something small like that, so I can set it on my stand and read and my conductor doesn’t notice (*fingers crossed* if she does notice, I’m kinda in trouble! But those rehearsals can be soooo boring, especially since I don’t play on all the pieces/movements!).
Can you read more than one at once?

If you’re new here, please check out my recent post, Missing: HAVE YOU SEEN THIS BOOK?  I am attempting to find the title and/or author of a book I borrowed from a friend in HS and I can use all the help I can get!

    I've got a similar approach. I read a different book for every format I read in: digital audiobook, CD audiobook, ebook, and dead tree. I just finished a free download audiobook version of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe that you might be interested in: http://freelistens.blogspot.com/2011/03/lion-witch-and-wardrobe-by-cs-lewis.html

    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
