Booking Through Thursday – On Friday – "Break"

Spread the love

Oops.  I forgot!!!

Yesterday’s Booking Through Thursday Question Was:

Do you take breaks while reading a book? Or read it straight through? (And, by breaks, I don’t mean sleeping, eating and going to work; I mean putting it aside for a time while you read something else.)

 First of all, good thing for the clarification because I thought she did mean eating and sleeping as breaks. (Although I don’t break when I eat, I often read while eating.)

I do a little of both. There are some books that get done in three days or less (sometimes 2 hours or less) and other books which are ongoing for 3-6 months. A book of 300 pages may last me 2 days or 2 months. It really depends. I always have LOTS of books going at a time (by LOTS I mean 4+.) Some of those books I won’t end up reading the whole thing of either because I didn’t like it enough and stopped reading it or I only needed to read certain parts of it. Most get finished though.

I usually have at least one of the following going at one time:

  • adult nonfiction
  • children’s nonfiction
  • teen or middle grade fiction
  • picture books

How about you?
