Booking Through Thursday: Break

From Booking Through Thursday, here’s this week’s question:

Do you take breaks while reading a book? Or read it straight through? (And, by breaks, I don’t mean sleeping, eating and going to work; I mean putting it aside for a time while you read something else.)Since I tend to have between 5 and 8 books in progress at a time, I definitely take breaks from them. If I read a book straight through, it either means I’m cramming for a genre study or, more likely, that I’m completely hooked on that book. It’s actually a wonderful thing when a book feels so perfect to me that I cannot put it down. It only happens a few times each year, and I’m so happy when it strikes. The most recent examples of this phenomenon:This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan TropperCarrying the Fire: An Astronaut’s Journeys by Michael Collins
The only down side is that other books just seem flat after the really good ones. Really a small price to pay, but still…
