Book Blogger Retreat | Books Read at One Time

This week on Gone with the Words:
Tune in Tuesday: Book Playlists {04}
Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Play Hooky With
Waiting on Wednesday: Shine
Review: Angel Fire by L.A. Weatherly
Review: Black Heart by Holly Black


TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.

This week’s question: Book Blogger Retreat: If you could gather up a handful of book blogger friends to spend a weekend away talking books, where would you go? Tell us about it.

Beach. Definitely a beach house. Or maybe a lake house or cabin! Somewhere serene with a nice deck where we could drink coffee and read in the mornings. Or if it’s cold, we could sit by a fire and drink hot chocolate!

Now I really want to make this happen! lol


Follow Friday

Follow My Book Blog Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read where we all get together and say HI!

This week’s question: Do you read one book at a time or do you switch back and forth between two or more?

I used to be able to read more than one book at a time, but now I find I cannot. So it’s only one book at a time for me. :)

Update – I forgot something! I actually have an audiobook for the car and work! So that makes me a two-books-at-a-time gal! :D

    I’m definitely down for the cabin in the woods. Sweatpants, coffee, bloggers, books…all by a crackling fire? YES PLEASE.

    I used to be a one book girl, but since we have silent reading at work, I have one book there and one at home.

    The first thing that popped into my head was, “Beach!” Then a bunch of other possibilities were considered and I decided on something else. You can check out my trip tic tomorrow on my blog!

    I don’t listen to too many audiobooks, so I stick with one book at a time. That’s all my poor brain can handle.

  5. _yay_ Book that Thing!

    Audiobooks seem to be the popular pick for “more than one” read at a time. I’m not a big fan. Hopefully that’ll change lol. For me…main read versus secondary read. More than 2 doesn’t work.

    I don’t often read more than one book at a time, but I never did so, I think. :)

    Yeah I like 1 book at a time myself! It is just easier on my brain! The beach sounds nice! I just picked a huge bookstore at some unknown location!
