A very bad thing.
I picked up this book at the library, ——————————————>
and (gasp!) I started reading it.
Oh, it was a terrible mistake.
I’ve cast aside The Portrait of a Lady for a book with interesting characters, romance, danger, and a lightening-fast plot.
Henry James who?
When we first started the WEM program, I had upstairs books and downstairs books. The WEM novel would be downstairs, and I would read it when I had a quiet moment. The “fun” book would be upstairs on my nightstand, and I would devour it before bed. But it took months and months to read Don Quixote. After that, I cut out recreational fiction. Or rather, I used it as a reward for finishing a novel.
Not this time. Nope. The library hold came in, and I couldn’t crack the spine open fast enough.
I am a big, fat cheater-pants.
We’ve talked about this dilemma before, but it’s been a while. Fellow readers, what do you do? Do you stick exclusively to the assigned title, or do you read multiple books as the same time?
