So I am so excited to be doing my first discussion post. I finally found a topic that I am really curious about , how do you read? what I mean by this is do you read one book at time, physical books, kindle books, audio books. I am probably like many of us bloggers and book lovers, my TBR pile is huge and I have so many books I am dying to read.
If you follow me on Goodreads then you will probably see that at anytime I am reading between 3-4 books. It might sounds a little bit crazy to some people to try and read that many at a time but, I read certain books at certain places. I have a kindle which I absolutely am in love with but, it is my second kindle that I have owned because the first one I had I took everywhere with me and I accidently dropped it and my screen broke. My boyfriend wasn't too happy but, I immediately ordered a new one and promised that I would leave my kindle at home and not take it to work anymore. I also live in Colorado and it gets freezing cold here and in case you didn't know kindles hate the cold so leaving it in the car overnight or while I am working bad idea!
To keep myself on some sort of reading schedule (which usually doesn't happen because if I read a great review of a book on my list it definitely gets moved up or read right away) The one thing that my boyfriend doesn't get and we have had to make a compromise on its books. He doesn't understand why I would need physical books if I have a kindle, so I made a deal with him. I would only buy books I love that I want to have for my collection or a book in a series that I am in the middle of. I have been buying more and more physical books shame on me I know but, once I read an author that I love I have to add their books to my collection and nothing can replace having some of the beautiful covers that I have to add to my bookshelf.
The reason I am usually reading 3 or 4 books at time it is because once I began winning books and buying physical books my shelves were growing but, I hadn't read any of them, I had too many e-arcs and kindle books to get to them. My boyfriend finally put his foot down, no more new physical books until I have read all of the one's I have. I am so happy to say that I have almost read through my shelf, which means that I can get new books! So, the makeup of books I am usually reading at any given time is 2 e-arcs from my kindle, a physical book from my shelf, a kindle book that is not an e-arc a book just for me, and sometimes an audio book in the car while I am driving. I make myself read kindle books that I have that are already released that I am just excited to read because I was beginning to feel burned out and I needed to start reading books just for me and it has made me so happy!
So, that is how I read, I am super curious about you guys. How do you read? One book at time, eBook, physical books, audio books? Let me know in the comments!
