How Many Books Can I Read at Once!?

Posted by Yolanda Squarble Fried #1 , Jan 10 2013 · 106 views

I have a habit of buying books.
 
In case you are new to this blog, I work at a coffee shop. The business right next door is a used book store, which I frequent often. As a result, I find myself acquiring new books all the time (much faster than I can read them).
 
Here's a list of books I currently have on the go:
 
Les Misérables - a book about- nevermind, you guys all know what it's about, right? ( and actually I started this one long before I saw the movie thank you very much :P)
 
Wild Cards - an anthology of short stories written by different sci-fi writers set in a shared universe where superheroes are the result of a virus.
 
A Game of Thrones - the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire series. It's fantasy and really, really good (yes, I am a latecomer to this series shhh [also I bought this book in like-new condition for $1 and that makes me happy] ).
 
I also recently finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time which was one of the strangest books I have ever read. But it was good, and, again, I got it for only a dollar, so I'm happy with it.
 
In the meantime, Tolstoy's War and Peace, Stephen King's Misery (The Shining got me hooked on King), and Margaret Atwood's Cat's Cradle (The Handmaid's Tale got me hooked on Atwood), among others, are staring me in the face, begging me to read them.
 
Anyone else in this sort of a situation? I have dozens of books, and no time to read!

Lol, I have the exact same problem as you. I read on average a book a week, too, but I'm still left with buying books (from a used bookstore) quicker than I can read them. =P All of those books sound awesome -- I've heard of all except for Cat's Cradle, and I hope to read them all sometime as well. I especially want to read Les Mis, and will have to some time.

 

I'm sure you'll enjoy A Game of Thrones. I just started A Storm of Swords, and this is definitely an amazing series. 

 

Have fun reading!!
