I just completed Little Face by Sophie Hannah and now 1/4 through Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, starting on Merlin and The Alchemist's Secret. Haha, I have a bad habit of reading three/two books at one go.

believe it or not, I too read two books at one time
Somehow breaks the monotony and feels good to be travelling in two worlds!:tongue:

who else reads many books at once?

how many books do you read at a time?

Do you like to complete one book at a time?

Today I started the graphic novel Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. I'm really enjoying it and I'm glad I thought to check out the sequel from the library so now I won't have to wait :happy:.

Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy

I only read one novel at a time, but I usually have about ten non-fiction books in rotation.

history, history...

-something about the War of 1812, focusing on a more social view, particularly looking at boarder conflicts, conflicting loyalties, immigrants, natives, etc.

-a history of europe during and a few hundred years previous to 1000 CE, with an annoying and largely uninteresting focus on religious millenarianism that keeps popping up in between the interesting bits.

-something about Caesar, only started it a little.

-a book about the Oka rebellion, a Mohawk rebellion in canada in the '90's i believe. not far in this either.

-a large book giving a general overview of explorers through history/societies.

... and a bunch of half-started or almost-done books which are put to the side for now that i'll get back to... like one about the conquest of ancient Mexico by Cortes, a book on the black plague (almost done, probably wont finish, the author started saying things i suspect are dubious), some book of poetry (omg, not history???)... and a bunch of other things that i might get back into at one point or another.

Your post reminds me of what happens every time I go to the library. I get fifteen books and only finish one, but man, is it a blast picking them out.

"Neural substrates of attentive listening assessed with a novel auditory Stroop task."

Hard to get anything meaningful when it's full of technical words I don't understand.

I'm not reading anything for leisure at the moment.

Non-fiction: Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely (audiobook I'm listening to on the way to work)

Fiction: Towers of Midnight by Robert Jordan (I read 400 pages the first week it was released and haven't had time to read the 2nd half since)

I love Marjane Satrapi and all her work! You should read Chicken with Plums, I'm sure you'll love it!
