Follow Friday #26

Happy Friday everyone!
Yes, it’s that time of week again where bloggers unite to participate in the Follow Friday venture. The idea behind #FF is to promote traffic to your own blog, make new friends with other like-minded bloggers and discuss new and interesting topics each week.
Participating is simple. First you need to follow my blog because I’m totally awesome, then you can follow me on Twitter @kristyberridge (actually you don’t have to do this, it’s wishful thinking), but do follow my blog or assassins will get you …
Then you must follow our illustrious hosts Rachel of http://www.parajunkee.com/ and Alison of http://www.alisoncanread.com/ If you want more details on how to enter your own blog in the follow and hop, all directions are on their webpages
Now, once you’ve followed, check out my answer to this week’s questions and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can do the right thing and follow you back!

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

Answer: I used to have book OCD. I could never, ever pollute the story line of one book by introducing a new one. Then, one late and stormy night, I was sitting in front of my computer, reading one of the most badly written self-published books I've ever laid eyes upon. Stricken by the use of bad vocabulary, over excessive expletives in a supposed YA novel, and just stunned by overall bad characterisation and plot, I found myself thinking of other books. Alas, I reached across the keyboard and thumbed the other covers glistening at me on the bookshelf. And that's when I did it. I cheated on one book with another and haven't looked back since.
Although I am now a self-confessed book adulteress, I still go steady with no more than two books at once. There isn't enough of me to go around otherwise.

Kristy :)

  1. Hee hee! Nice! I'm still a one book girl! I just prefer to give all my attention to one book so when I write a review later on I won't be bombarded with different characters, plots, good parts, bad from different books!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  3. *snort* That happened to me in January. I usually read one book in one sitting, then start the next one, but alas, January was horrible and I was unfaithful.
