I am a monogamous reader.
There, I’ve said it.
I feel so much better now.
I’ve tried to read more than one book at a time. I really have. I even made a resolution earlier this year to commit to being a book whore. But after posting how I was going to read three books this week and then I haven’t, I’ve come to the conclusion that I am a one book at a time man.
I can’t do polygamy.
If it were a beer…
…oh, wait it is…
…then I could be polygamous.
Ah, who am I kidding? I prefer girlie drinks. It’d be better if it were a wine like Polygamy Port or a mixed drink like, I don’t know, a Long Island Iced Tea…
…which I do like.
Anyway, I digress from what I’ve read this past week and what I’m reading today and this coming week: I finished Déjà Dead by Kathy Reichs and now have started The Likeness by Tana French. I did try to read both at one time, but not surprisingly, it just didn’t work.
As I mentioned a few posts ago, I was given a copy of In The Woods as part of a book blogger holiday swap, but hadn’t gotten to the second one yet because I recommended the series (on the basis of the first one) to the patron who recommended The Wild Trees: A Story of Passion and Daring by Richard Preston to me. Since he still had the second one checked out, I got it on loan as an e-book from the library.
I am enjoying it so far and hope to be able to finish it here in the next few days as The Wife will be away on a business trip. In other words, I’m going to be cheating on her with a book or maybe even two if I finish The Likeness.
Hey, maybe I’m judging this polygamy thing too quickly.
So are you a monogamous reader or a polygamous reader? Either way, I’m not one to judge. What are you reading today and what do you plan to read this week?
