I have a bunch of books I haven't read yet and I'm finding it hard to decide which book to read next. I have over 200 downloaded on my Kindle and probably 20 to 30 "real" books. I have a mix of pretty much everything but don't know what I'm in the mood for. Usually when I get 3/4 of the way through a book I already know which one I'll be reading next. Would you believe I finished my last book two days ago and still haven't picked up another book to read? That would be like me telling you I started my day without coffee Maybe my problem is I have too many to choose from. What are you reading these days?

I usually have two or three books going at one time. I've started listening to books more and more. I can sit and crochet and let someone else read to me. I love it.

My daughter loves listening to audiobooks when she drives back and forth to work. I does sound like a good idea since I like to mulittask

I am reading Jerk , a story about a teen with Tourette's Syndrome. It is a good read.

That sounds interesting. Is it based on a true story?

The title is actually Jerk, California by Johnathon Friesen, but the "California" is hard to see on the cover. It won the Schneider Family Book Award. I see he has written other books that look really good too. I do not think it is based on a true story, but it could be.

That's a whole lot of books. These days I mostly read magazines.

Yes, you have too many choices for sure. Right now I am still working on Charles Darwin.

I haven't read a fiction book in a very long time. I blame it on streaming movies. I'd rather watch a movie than sitting for hours reading a book.

Less really is more - or at least enough!

@Marilynda1225 It is difficult to choose one book when we have so many books to choose from.

I always make time to read. It's what a smart woman does. Right now, I'm finishing up Just One Year by Gail Forman, and have The Fifth Vial by Michael Palmer lined up next. I've done away with reading electronic books, unless I'm traveling. I'm sure you'll find a super book next. Happy reading to you!

I have only read but a single book all year so far. I've been so busy with packing and moving and unpacking and now exploring the new city.
