Reading Creep

Book creep?

It seems like there should be a term for how you can accumulate books in progress. I started out with a reasonable number of books — a hard copy book, an ebook, and an audiobook.

Now, suddenly, I have, like seven books in progress — three ebooks, three hard copy books, and an audiobook.

I’m going to have to scale back a bit.

The audiobook is the second Wheel of Time book, so that one is staying.

My three ebooks are Run, the third book in the Fearless series; The Deceivers, the second book in the Greystone Secrets series; and The Winterbourne Home for Mayhem and Mystery, the second book in the Winterbourne Home for Valor and Vengeance series.

I think I’m going to knuckle down and finish Run, then I don’t know. I actually have the Greystone Secrets one on my old phone and the Winterbourne Home one on my new phone, and I’m kind of tempted to leave it that way. That’ll leave me with two ebooks.

My four hard copy books are Motherhood: The Second Oldest Profession, by Erma Bombeck; Cash in a Flash, by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen; and Eyewitness to History, by John Carey. I also have been working my way through the Young Wizards series and I’m kind of eager to get to my reread of Wizards at War and I have a copy of The Last Graduate, by Naomi Novik that I’ve been holding off on because I’m really worried that it won’t be as good as I hope it is.

I may have the Bombeck one done tonight or tomorrow. I’m rereading Cash in a Flash because it’s the book that got me book blogging in the first place, and I’m hoping to find a way to monetize this blog besides just the Germane/Gratuitous Amazon Link thing. So I guess I’m jettisoning Eyewitness to History for the time being.

Well, five books isn’t three books, but it’s not seven books, either.
