It’s not unusual for me to have more than one book going at a time. What is unusual is to be so into all of the books I am reading. I seem to be in one of those moods where everything I pick up turns into something I want to devour. My appetite right now is insatiable and it is exacerbated by all the books I keep buying (!) and the fact that I am spending too much time in front of digital media. With 8 books completed in January I feel I am on a good pace to reach my goal of 104 books this year, but there is part of me that feels the need to take giant piles of books and just cram them into my head.
In addition to these four titles that have me pretty well captivated I have about five other books that are in various stages of being started but I am finding them less captivating. Some of those may get abandoned for good but I am holding out on naming them until I give them another go.
