Friday Question #186
Do you finish every book you start reading? What would cause you to stop reading a book?
Always have, always will. I adore books! In fact, I have always had trouble putting the book down after I started it! About the only time I've ever interrupted a read is when I've been sick or traveling, because I can't read while in motion.
It's only recently that I'd tried reading several books at a time. When I needed to read things for college, it would cut into my leisure reading time. That didn't work out so well. I like to have one-on-one with my books for as long as I'm reading (or re-reading) them.
I still have a book I got for Christmas that I haven't cracked open yet, can you believe it? We were so busy with moving and being sick that I never got around to it! I think I'll read it this weekend while the weather's shitty.
As loathe as I am to admit it, the Kindle helps me pick back up when I've put a book down. The problem is, with all the books being invisible, I don't have the cover to jog my memory and make me start reading it again. This is why technology will never replace senses. It's hard to emotionally connect with a cold, flat metal thing.
