The Sunday Salon - Juggling the TBR!

The weather is still crisp and cool, but no snow or rain so I'm a happy camper! I was even able to keep the windows open and let in some fresh air, but I know it's technically still winter and we could get the white stuff again. I'll just enjoy what we get for now.

This week I've been reading two print books and listening to one audio. I never read two print books at once. It's too confusing for me, but this was one non-fiction and one fiction, so I thought that would be okay. Although I wasn't confused and mixing up characters, I found it was difficult to complete either book. So, it's only one at a time for me from here on in. I always read one print book and listen to one audio. I can handle that since the audio I only listen to on the way to and home from work. Do any of you read more than one book at a time? Are you able to keep it all straight in your head?

I finished one book - The Yankee Years by Joe Torre and Tom Verducci. I'll have the review up in a day or so. It was a good book, but I didn't think it was worthy of all the media hype when it was released. At least here in New York there was a lot of hype about it, I'm not sure other areas heard it - day and night - like we did.

I'm still reading Back to School Murder by Leslie Meier and I'm almost finished. It's a great cozy series. I love it.

The audio I'm listening to is Chasing Harry Winston and I'm almost finished with this one. Only one disc left to go.

I'm really not sure what's next on my list to read. Probably has more to do with whatever mood I happen to be in.

I'm still hosting the Hatchette Book's book giveaway of The Italian Lover by Robert Hellenga. I have the book to review and it looks like a good one. I have 5 copies of this book to giveaway and there is still time to enter the contest, which ends on February 20th. So stop by and enter for your chance to win

I hope you all have a great week!


  1. I'm reading two books right now which is unusual for me as well. One of the books in nonfiction and a long one which is why I decided to read two. I have to make time for it though when I get caught up in the other book. Enjoy your week!

  2. I'm torn between what to read next - something on my nightstand or a book I have from the library. I find it hard to read two at one time, but I do try. I hope you enjoy your Sunday!

  3. I usually read multiple books at the same time. What helps me keep them straight is: One, I generally have one book that is my main read (right now that book is Matrimony by Josh Henkin. I'll be hosting a giveaway for a personalized, signed copy. The drawing will be on February 25th, but that's as far as I've gotten). Also, I try not to read two of the same genre... that gets confusing. Another thing that helps is that I have specific places that I read different books. I read one book in the kitchen, one when I'm waiting at the dr's office or other places, one I read in my bedroom, etc.

    I rarely have a problem keeping them straight. I just get bored reading one book at a time ;-)

  4. I tend to read two books at once, at first I found it hard, but then I got used to it. But I know what you mean, it can get confusing.
    have a great week :)
