And that’s where the relationship/ books analogy ends. Seriously, if I’m reading I have at least three books on the go at once if not more. Who else does this? I know I’m not alone in having many bookmarks in many novels. Currently I am reading Crime & Punishment in bursts, the first novel of the Dexter series, The Spirit Level, and dipping in and out of Edgar Allan Poe. On top of that I have a ‘work book’, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which I sometimes read when my full attention isn’t required.
For some reason there’s a satisfaction in reading lots of different and varied books. And I always finish them too, it’s not like I drift and never come back. What’s your reading system like?
