Here's this week's question...
Oh gosh, I don't think I could read two books at the same time (not even before I had a baby, lol). I need to concentrate on one. However there was a brief period recently when I was listening to an audio book (A Place of Hiding by Elizabeth George) and reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at the same time.
One book at a time? Or more than one? If more, are they different types/genres? Or similar?
(We’re talking recreational reading, here—books for work or school don’t really count since they’re not optional.)
Right now I'm listening to The Art of Detection by Laurie R King, it's my introduction to this author. I don't see how I could ever find the time to read/listen to another book at the same time.
I used to do much of my reading during my commute. Ever since I quit my job and had a baby, I have had limited time for pleasure reading. I've only recently gotten into audio books, trying it out to see if it would work out better for my current situation. It's not exactly a replacement for reading, but I do like being able to kill two birds with one stone ... listen to an audio book while knitting. I know that there are people who can read a book and knit simultaneously. I'm definitely not one of them.
