08/31: Needed to come up for air with The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas I've been averaging a hundred pages a day with that one. Started Say Nothing A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland by Patrick Radden Keefe - up to page 22 & Maybe I just have issues with audio books, but I attempted to listen to the audio book of The Fifth Risk Undoing Democracy by Michael Lewis , but retained very little so I came home and re-read the majority of what I listened to. This book deals with government agencies average Americans, like myself, do not understand. Much to my relief Lewis boils the content down expertly. -133 pages read & retained.

Total pages read: 1725

Hi everyone, can you believe it is August 12th? How are you?

I'm feeling a little sluggish on my reading, maybe it's because I decided to read 6 books at a time, and I cannot seem to finish any of them.

I'm feeling a little restless in my reading. I am sort of reading 3 or 4 books at the same time and can't commit to any of them. I know I'll end up finding what I'm looking for eventually. Until then, I've gotta keep looking and sampling.

I have never understood how anybody could read more than one book at a time and not get the stories mixed up. I read just one at a time and still get the story mixed up with TV shows.

The way I get a round the confusion is by reading only one book from each genre. Right now I am reading a classic, a biography/history, a fantasy, an espionage, and a contemporary literary fiction.

Once I get about 50% done on a particular book then I will concentrate on it, until I have finished it, then go back to the others, while also browsing for another book to put in the mix.

I tried reading one book at a time. It just doesn't work for me.

Leane I really lowered my bar this month for reading. I also enjoy multiple books at once (I try to make them different genres) but it's just not even an option right now. I'm struggling to get through one book.
I'm really hoping when the seasons change so will my reading mood.

I'm the same way.

I've heard that before and I honestly can't understand how people can get confused. Maybe it's the writer in me picking up patterns in narrative and speech, but books "feel" different -- even if they're in the same genre.
For instance, I was rereading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (sci-fi, but with strong parody elements) and One Damned Things After Another (sci-fi, but with time travel). In the past, I've read urban fantasy and high fantasy together as well. I never got any of them mixed up.

I'm trying something I have never even thought to do before. I am reading Ulysses S. Grant's memoirs and reading Ron Chernow's biography of Grant at the same time. Mainly because Chernow quotes the memoirs frequently.

I'll read a few chapters from the memoirs, then read the same time frame in Chernow's book.

This actually makes a lot of sense. You get to read the memoir but also read someone writing about it and you almost get a "second opinion" on what you're reading.

I read a lot of books at the same time all the time. I don't mix them up, my mind is so much going in all directions that the difficult thing for me is to stick to one book lol.

This month I've been without much luck with reading and already DNFed three books because they were slow and boring.

Maybe switch to a quickie middle grade book? That's what I do when I need to refresh (am doing right now). They are easy reads and usually something slightly fun or humorous.

Leticia (leticiatoraci) | 436 comments I usually don't read middle grade, my comfort reading is space opera. I'll be trying that soon since I'm doing Space Opera September.

Leticia, what is your favorite Space Opera series?

Leane, I am not sure if Anne McCaffrey's Harper Hall trilogy would be considered middle grade or YA, but I find when all other books fail, this trilogy gets me back to reading (I would include the Pern series here as well, but they are not middle grade).

Sometimes we have to have that fall back. For me it's usually a middle grade book because they are shorter, easier reads and finishing a book makes me feel accomplished.

Is this month seriously about to be over??

I feel like the fall really inspires me to get reading again. I'm planning on trying to tackle some standalones on my TBR for September.
