- Confessions of a Book Juggler
As a kid, I was known to read a book a day during the summer. As I got older, priorities changed. I still fantasize about a day when I can sit in a Adirondack chair, overlooking the Atlantic, enjoying a huge cup of coffee and a great book.
The question for me should be, "how many books do you finish each year?" I typically finish about 5 books, but I'm constantly juggling from one book to another, so although I've only finished a few books, I've probably read a bit from 10 books. I like to read a book about history, one about politics, a autobiography, and a career-related book, all at the same time. I read less now because I travel less for my career, and as a writer, much of my reading now is on-line research. Is being a "book juggler" a common trait?
