This week’s question: How did you come up with the name of your blog?

At that time I began this blog, it was called “Read? Don’t Mind if I Do…” but I wasn’t in love with that name. So I held a poll that included names suggested by other bloggers and Twitter friends, and the winner was “Gone with the Words”! I loved that name before it even won, LOL, so I’m glad it did.

Book Blogger Hop

This week’s question: Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?

I will usually start 2 books then go primarily with the one that grabs me, and I’m always listening to an audiobook.

    That's a good way to go about deciding which book to really focus on. :) Do you return to the second book after finishing the first one? And that was nice to incorporate your followers opinions when choosing the name of your new blog. :D I think it's a splendidly unique name that suits a reader.Happy hopping and reading this weekend!

    Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness – http://www.howardshermannetHoward Shermanhttp://www.howardsherman.net
