This week’s question was submitted by Eli @ The Book Supplier)

Question for the week of 2/24 – 3/2 – HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT BOOKS WITH MULTIPLE NARRATORS?

I don’t really care. It can get a little tiring after a while. For example, I’ve read quite a few books with at least two narrators so far this year and while I’m generally okay with it, after about the third book, I was a little worn out. I don’t have a preference either way and most times I like to switch it up every once in a while but reading too much of the same thing can get monotonous.

I know that I’ve also read some really good books where I would have preferred it be only one narrator, or even multiple narrators, just because I wanted to hear more of their thoughts or the thoughts of the other character.

What about you guys? Do you prefer either way or do both work for you?

Book Blogger Hop #1

Okay, I seriously have no idea where I got this meme from. I want to say I stumbled upon it while book-blogging-stalking, or it must have been someone new I followed today, but anyway. I guess it doesn’t matter. I found a new book blog in which to follow! 🙂

In my old book blogs, I tried so hard to be current with the book memes and try to participate but I failed every single time. I’m not too sure why, but I could never get on board with them. This one caught my eye and I thought I would participate in these weekly, or at least if the question was interesting enough. Because I saw this today, I am little late, but it starts every Friday and ends the following Thursday. So here goes:

This week’s question was submitted by Elizabeth from Silver’s Reviews.

Question for week of 2/17-2/23: CAN YOU READ AND WATCH TV OR LISTEN TO THE RADIO AT THE SAME TIME?

In short, yes. As far as TV/Reading, it depends on what I’m

watching. For example, if I’m watching the same kids movie for the billionth time, safe to say I’ll catch up some reading. Or any other television show designed for my children, my face will be in a book whilst keeping an eye on them. Or if my bf is playing video games, or watching a movie I’m not interested in watching, you’ll catch me reading. And even during sports games or shows. Like preseason football games or basketball games early in the season, or anything on ESPN or NFL Network,  I’ll have that on just as background noise. So yeah, safe to say I am able to read and watch TV. But the radio is a different beast. I’ve tried, but it’s hard for me to focus if I have music on. Maybe some jazz or classical music but that’s rare.

See, I grew up in a chaotic home environment. I’m used to being surrounded by loud noises and being constantly interrupted. It doesn’t phase me in the least. I can zone out when I want to. I can’t do that as often as I used to, of course, but when my brain needs a break, I’ll just block everything out for a few minutes.

But tell me: can YOU read and watch TV or listen to the radio at the same time?
