I know that I have previously mentioned my terrible habit of having several part-read books on the go at once.
I’m not sure what that says about me. A butterfly mind? An inability to commit? Someone who takes on more than they should? Who knows.
Sometimes this worries me a little and I make a concrete effort to get the number of “ongoing” books down. However this then makes me think that I’m not doing so bad and so I start adding to the “ongoing” pile all over again.
It is, I admit, a bad habit.
But I know someone who has a much odder bookish foible. He can’t go to bed if he has just finished reading a book, unless. He has to start another one before he can go to sleep.
Now that’s just plain weird.
