One book is just never enough!

Just because I haven’t added a book to the Marbair’s must read list doesn’t mean that I haven’t spent my daily commute with my nose stuck in a book. Yes, there are mornings that I nap but the real reason that I haven’t been able to tell you about a book is because I’m currently rotating between 4 books. I’ve always been good at multi-tasking but I’m really good at multi-reading. This happens when I can’t decide what type of a book I’m in the mood for.

After having read two memoirs back to back, I decided I needed a little Chick-lit and started reading Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy. The 3rd book of the Bridget Jones series. Bridget Jones is one of my favourite “not real” people. I love her as a potty-mouthed, diary-keeping, calorie-counting, destined-to-be spinster just the way she is. But she didn’t become a spinster, she’s actually 51 with 2 children and I’m having a hard time relating to a Bridget that is attending PTA meetings and raising children.

I decided that I would give myself some time to warm up to the idea of a grown up Bridget and started reading “Wheat Belly”  It’s no surprise that with Paleo and Gluten Free friends, I would start to question if my challenge to lose some weight might actually have to do with my love for sandwiches. This book is informative and I was really getting into it when my copy of “I am Malala” arrived in the mail. You are now aware that I love memoirs and bios so guess which book was immediately accompanying me on my commute to work. This little girl has seen more in her 16 years than any person should and I’m only half way through the book.

While I wasn’t looking to add any more books to the list until I at least got through one of the current ones, someone lent me Divergent. You know, the first book of the new “it” trilogy. I missed my stop yesterday morning because I was so immersed in the book. It’s such an easy read and I’m flying through it. What is it about these teen trilogies that keep me so entertained?

At the rate I’m going, I will finish reading it before the week is up and am confident that it will make my must read list, the question though is… will I finally finish the other 3 books that I started or will I get my hands on the second book of the trilogy by Friday! One answer I do have is that one book is just never enough!

  1. I’m the same way! Have been reading “A. Lincoln”, “Genius of Place”, “The Feminist Mystique” and “Too Big to Fall”! Made some progress with “Genius of Place” but hit a wall. I’m not excited by fiction at the moment so I’m reading memoirs and non-fiction. Next up: “Wherever I Wind Up”, written by the Toronto Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey.
