Do you typically read one book at a time, or more than one? How many, on average?

I bounce back and forth. Sometimes I'll be reading just one, sometimes I'll have up to 5 going at once.

  • ......I usually have 3-5 going at once, but it's because I'll leave them all over the house. I'll have one in the bathroom, one on my desk, one in my purse, one next to my bed, etc etc etc.

  • I like to just read one at a time, but when I go to the library I usually pick up a few at a time and read them back to back, then make another trip to the library.

  • One at a time, if I do more than one I lose track of the other story.

  • I may have two going at once, rarely three. in a good week, i can read 5, in a bad week , none. I read fiction and non-fiction, use the library and am more likely to buy books as gifts for others than for myself. My husband is also a bookworm and my daughters love to read.

  • Lately one at a time but in the recent past I've read two at the same time.

  • Right now I'm reading 3. I really focus on one at a time, but I'll typically start one, get annoyed or distracted, start another, get annoyed or distracted, and read something silly, finish that, go back to one, finish that, then finish the third. It's a mood thing, I don't want anything deep or complex for example when I am traveling, I want brain candy. But if I can read every night, a more complex story is fine.

  • Only one at a time. I slip a bunch of magazine articles in there though.

  • One at a time, I read fast so most books that I read I finish within 2 days of starting if not the same day.
