I usually have a few books stashed in different places that I read concurrently. I have Tolkien's The Hobbit next to the bath tub now, as I read in the bath. I have Clavell's Sho-gun stashed in the tote bag I take to work. I took the 1st Harry Potter book to the home computer desk to look up a name, but may leave it there to read during tv-watching - or not. Sometimes there's more than one book out downstairs for tv/reading. What about you?

I usually have 4 on the go at one time. I have one beside my bed, 1 in each of the bathrooms I use the most (gross, I know) and one in the car that I'll read when waiting to pick up the kids etc.

I usually do have a bed-side book, but I think I dragged it off somewhere else and finished it LOL. Haven't had a lot of time for reading in bed and if there is I have been reading craft-related books looking for potential lesson projects.

lol. I used to be like that, with up to 10 books going at once! I used to have stacks of half-read books by my bed, one for each mood. Now I donĀ“t have time to read, though, plus it is really hard to find English books for a decent price here in Guatemala and reading in Spanish is just too much work! (Although I did make it through Memories of a Geisha in Spanish)

I read only one book at a time.when i start reading a book i get fully involved in that and i hate getting intervened in between.Now the book i am reading is future shock.Let me give a small intoduction about it. Future Shock is a book written by the sociologist and futurologist Alvin Toffler in 1970. The book is actually an extension of an article of the same name that Toffler wrote for the February 1970 issue of Playboy. The book has sold over 6 million copies and has been widely translated. Future shock is also a term for a certain psychological state of individuals and entire societies, introduced by Toffler in his book of the same name. Toffler's shortest definition of future shock is a personal perception of "too much change in too short a period of time". The concept of future shock bears resemblance to the late 20th/early 21st century concept of "the technological singularity", and may have been influenced by Kuhn's concept of a technological paradigm shift. i would request all mylotters must have a look at this book.its just superb and better than the best.

I only like to have one book on the go at a time. Right now it is 'Sailing to Sarantium' by Guy Gavriel Kay. Since I tend to read series, however, I do have several series on the go right now (all of them waiting for their respective authors to get on with it and publish the next book): Settling Accounts by Harry Turtledove Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin The Night's Dawn by Peter F Hamilton The Commonwealth Saga by Peter F Hamilton Harry Potter by J K Rowling

Wow, I can only read one book at a time. If I read too many I get the stories confused. I usually read one book in one day especially if it is a good one!

Right now none, but I do have areader's digets somewhere around the house that I haven't finished reading. However, i read so fast that I can generally finish a book in just 3 or 4 hours, so when I sit down to read in theevening, I generally finish the book.
