I’m afraid I stared at her blankly, not sure what she meant.
“You’ve just mentioned the five books you read last week and the three you’re reading now,” she pointed out.
You know, I never really gave it much thought before. I do have a tendency to read more than one book at a time. This week I’m reading Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein, the Dead Town. I’m finishing up a couple of paperback Harlequins. Also I’m reading Lee Brazil’s Loving Jacob and Em Woods’ Chasing Alex, two amazing authors I’ve only recently discovered. I love when an author I like has more than one book to offer!
Oh, and I’m also reading Christmas stories being posted on my favorite blogs.
So, does this make me seem restless, or heaven forbid, bored? Absolutely not! After thinking about it, I realize it’s because I never want a story to end. I won’t read a book unless I’m drawn instantly into the plot, more often than not becoming enamored of the characters. And though I often want to rush to their happily ever after, I slow down, read something else, just to prolong the pleasure and drama being played out in the pages.
Okay yes, I’m the old cliché of the nerdy bookworm. But damn I love a good story!
