I don't always read paper books, in fact, it has become rare as I travel more for my day job. Living in Spain doesn't give me a wide selection of paper in English. I love paper but the practicality has driven me into the arms of digital devices. I still have a library/office in my home and enjoy "real" books immensely to look at, read and touch.
So how on earth am I reading all of these paper at one time?
I'm in a travel lull. Also in the last year, I have given myself permission on nonfiction to read on and off. In the past, I pushed myself to finish and often lost enthusiasm and therefore attention span on nonfiction just dragging myself to completion rather than absorbing the information. In addition I have four more digital nonfiction books underway as well. That brings the total on nonfiction to eight!
I don't think I've ever read so many books at once in my life. It has left me with some anxiousness and I see I need to wrap up a few of them so I don't feel so lost when it's time to read.
Followers of my blog will know I don't really love reading nonfiction and my relaxing and enjoying comes from fiction which takes my mind away from reality.
Here's the total: three for research, two were gifts, one a travelogue - these I love but I stalled out on finishing for some reason; two for work or you could dub them self-improvement. AND I have a fiction audio book going at the moment. Just finished a paper fiction book on Thursday night as well.
So what should I pick up now?!
