Summer is for reading, right?

I never could understand how people could read more than one book at a time. I’d read interviews of So-And-So and s/he would mention s/he was in the middle of three different books. All I could think was, “Really? Just commit to one, for crying out loud! Read it, finish it, pick up another!”

Times have changed.

I am currently in the middle of at least four different books (print and Kindle app on the iPad), a couple of magazines, a couple hundred podcasts, and too many blogs to mention. Falls into my adult-onset-child-induced-ADHD. I figure I’ll finish them all just slightly after the zombie apocalypse.

Again, as I have vowed every summer in recent memory, I’m going to read more this summer. My Goodreads list of to-be-read is sneaking up on 600 (I really should cull that, or at the very least, organize it better so I can actually find what I’d like to read when I’m looking for something to read), I yet again have books on hold at the library which will likely be renewed the maximum number of times before being returned unread, and overall for the love of Pete I have a book problem. Too many books, not enough brain cells.

I vow this year will be different! I have no idea how.

For starters, I shall finish the four I’m currently reading and perhaps one or two of the dozen sitting in my library box.

Then I’ll have time to read this great new book coming out in July. I hear the author knows a thing or two about gifted kids.

Psst! Share your favorite read. What’s blowing your skirt up these days?

    I’m reading 3 books right now….none of which would be considered “learning” books, but they are all really good 🙂
