Libris Interruptus...Bedside Table Confessional

Taking a break from the lighthearted fiction I've been reading lately :)

I woke up this morning and realized that, in addition to Sophie's Choice, I have three other books stacked up on my nightstand, all of which I am about halfway through reading. Wondering if maybe I should seek some help. :) Here is what I currently have stacked up:
Julia Child, My Life in France
Philippa Gregory, The White Queen
George Washington's Mount Vernon (don't ask! :)
Anyone else out there incapable of reading one book at a time? Share with us what you're in the middle of. We should support each other!


  1. Hi. Just found your blog and this post more or less at random. Yes, I definitely read more than one thing at once. At my best - a few years ago - I could keep up to 5 things going at a time. Now it's down to just 2 or 3, usually.

    I keep my own book review blog at if you want to see what I'm reading. I've added your blog to my RSS reader.

    Happy reading!

  2. Thank you! Yes I already have four more books up there now, although I try to stick to one at a time. I find sometimes I have to mix it up a little and put down the Joseph Conrad and pick up something like Dave Barry. Sort of like a literary palate-cleanser. :)
