Sluttin' it up with some books

Okay so my friends, Kate @ Midnight Book Girl and Kim @ On the Wings of Books read more than one book at a time. My husband does too - sometimes. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've always read only one at a time and felt like I was cheating on said book if I picked up another. Hence, the term "book slut".

So I'm going to get rid of my pruddish ways for the next month and try it. I've got three books I want to read - all of which are very different. For book club, I'm reading The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. I've read the first 4 pages and it's so very weird and confusing but I shall keep going. The second is for Kate @ Midnight Book Girl's Stephen King Fall Read-a-long - Carrie by Stephen King (which is a re-read for me but a classic!) Finally, a comfort read of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. See? All very different books. So here I go to slut it up with some books this month. Hooray for Slutty September.

I love a good comfort book, but I really love a good book slut! ;)

I can't remember the last time I read just one book at a time (excluding the ones I read in one sitting cause those don't count). I usually have one going on my ereader and one print.

I'm disappointed that The Eyre Affair is weird and confusing - I just read a book like that and it drove me nuts, but it's only 4 pages so hopefully that will go away.

Love the different colors in KT's Reading Rainbow!

I am a complete book slut, then. Right now, I'm on Book V of Livy's History of Rome (Loeb Classical Library edition), at 390 BC, Homer's Odyssey (Rieu's translation), Plutarch's Lives, Paul Samuelson's Economics textbook, Friedman's Monetary History of the United States 1865-1960, and various forays into my poets (Yeats, Eliot, Auden, Larkin). Will I ever finish? Well, the journey is the joy.
