I know what you’re thinking – there’s no such thing as too many books, right? Normally, I’d agree with you, except right now I’m reading FOUR of them at one time. I’d drop one or two, but they all have some sort of schedule or deadline.
I have to finish A Conspiracy of Alchemists by Liesel Schwarz by Thursday to discuss it on the podcast.
- I have to finish Rhapsody by Elizabeth Haydon by the following Thursday to discuss IT on the podcast. It’s also the book club pick at the Mallorean Tavern.
- I really ought to finish Abhorsen by Garth Nix at some point, since it’s a library book and I’ve already renewed it twice.
- Still reading Blackout by Mira Grant with the folks over at Mark Reads.
And this is not counting the stack of books sitting to my left at the moment that I want to get started reading. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. Fire by Kristin Cashore. Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen. The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson (once I get it back from my mother). And THAT’S not counting the books that I really want to re-read. Like The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Or The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
I think I have a problem. But admitting it is the first step, right? Right?
Finished “The Madness Underneath” last night so you can now add it to you stack. :-O (This is me with my mouth hanging open about the ending) Oh my goodness! Maybe not as good as feed but . . . you’ll see 😉
Right. Second step – Find “Books Anonymous”.
Um, you did see what my podcast is called, right? 😉 The problem is, we sort of celebrate our addiction. And don’t want to recover.
I have the same problem. My list of books never seems to dwindle down because I am always adding new ones. Although reading 4 books at the same time must be a challenge. The most I’ve ever read at the same time was 3 and that was a challenge, especially keeping the topics and the characters from mixing in with one of the other books.
I don’t usually read this many at a time. Once I finish two of these for the podcast that I co-host, I should be able to settle down for a while. Maybe read two at a time instead. Oh well. It’s helping me get to my Goodreads goal for 2013!
