... do you read at once ?

At the moment, I've got 3 books that I'm reading.. K is for Killer by Sue Grafton, Hunting the Shadow by Geoff Thompson and Waking Dragons by Goran Powell (arrived today, addicted already). 1 private investigator thriller, 1 motivational self help book, 1 martial arts book.. different subjects but it's great to go from one to another !

How many books do you have on the go ?

Wow, I'd never heard of these.. I just read about the author dying before he completed the series but thankfully, leaving details of the story so someone else could complete the work.

The problem is of different nature, I love books, but don't have time for them that much. I read a lot of articles and magazines, but less and less time for books, from work, and playing. Sci-fi, adventure and music biography books are my favorite (same as movies) smile.gif

this might sound stupid, I never thought about reading different books at the same time. I always thought one sucks you in so much that you might get confused?

HAHAHA

I am currently re-reading two books. Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev, and Crown of Shadows by C.S. Friedman(Coldfire Trilogy). I usually read scifi(My favourite book of this genre is "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"), Fantasy(The Drizzt Do'Urden books by R.A. Salvatore are my favourite, particularly, "The Sea of Swords") and Noir(The Big Sleep, The Maltese falcon, etc). My favourite book of all time, however, has to be Cryptonomicon, by Neal Stephenson. I HIGHLY recommend this one. It is such an amazing book, I am glad I had the chance to be given a copy.

Recently, I have started getting into a lot of historical fiction(thanks to my fiancee), as well as Scandinavian mythos.

I used to read a lot of Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft growing up, so I have volumes of their work as well.

I love to read and sometimes have been known to be reading up to seven at once. Right now however I'm reading three currently. H.M.S. Surprise by Patrick O'brian, which is part of the Aubrey/Maturin series that the Master and Commander Movie was based on, Mr. Midshipman Hornblower by C.S. Forester, which is the first in a set of books depicting life abord the ships of the Royal Navy in the era of the wars between Napoleon-controlled France and England. (I love sea tales!) This series was also made into a movie for British Television I believe. The final book I am reading is The Complete Peanuts 1950-1952. This is the first in a series that puts all the Charlie Brown and Snoopy comics in book form so if you get all the books you will have every Snoopy comic ever printed, and since I have always liked these comics I am trying to collect the entire series. tongue.gif

I know what you mean.. sometimes one gets left behind more than the others... but it's nice to have different subjects to go between smile.gif

This rocks that everyone reads loads of books at the same time.. I wasn't expecting that much of a reply haha ! laugh.gif

I never read more than one. Usually the books I read are by authors like Isaac Asimov, Alastair Reynolds, Stephen Baxter, Robert Heinlen....And the way they write just kind of demands your full attention, lots of characters, dialogue, details, I would just get it all mixed up.

Most recent book I've read is "Pushing Ice" by Alastair Reynolds, fourth time reading it and its still one of my favorite, probably my single most favorite.

I hardly have time to read anything these days. The last thing I read was a book on how to quit smoking.
