I’m joining in with Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer‘s book blogger hop again this week, where they post a question which you and other bloggers answer, hopping from blog to blog to see people’s answers. This week, the question is…
How many books do you normally read in a month?
I feel like this question should be how many books do I actually finish in a month because I start quite a few books I don’t finish. If I haven’t been grabbed by the first 100 pages I often say goodbye to it. Also, in my attempts to read the classics, I often have a book on the go that takes more than a month to read because I find I have to be in the mood and have enough time to really give to it…some books you can’t pick up and put down when you find you have a spare five minutes, which is when I get probably half my reading done.
So, how many books do I finish each month? Somewhere be between 8 and 12 depending on what’s going on in my life and what I’m reading. The format also plays into it. I find I tend to read more when they are ebooks because I take my iPad everywhere with me so can get some sneaky five minutes of reading in here and there. I don’t carry “real” books around anymore so only get to read them at night, meaning it takes more time.
Other than the classic book mentioned above, I usually only read one book at a time as I struggle to keep two stories in my head, and really commit to them, at any one time. I also don’t review everything I read. what about you – how many books do you read in a month?
