Am I Reading Too Much?

A more accurate title might be "Am I Reading Too Many?"

My hope is that reading multiple books at the same time will ward off dementia.

Currently I am reading:

  • Still Foolin'  'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys?, an autobiography by Billy Chrystal, is my current bathtub book. 
  • Burn by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge is part of my morning laying-in-bed-before-I-get-up ritual.  I listen to it on my Kindle
  • The Legacy Journal: A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity by Dave Ramsey is part of the same morning ritual. I read it on my Kindle (e-book). 
  •  Bombshell by Catherine Coulter is entertaining me currently whenever I get into my car. I like to say I read in my car.  I always have a book on CD in the CD player. 
  • Honeymoon by James Patterson and Howard Roughan just became available.  I had it on hold in Overdrive (library e-books) and I only have two weeks to read it before someone else  gets a turn. I read Second Honeymoon first (and loved it), not realizing it was a series. I put this book on my iphone and will read it at the gym and on break at work.
  • The Bible. I'm always reading the Bible.  It's my before-I-go-to-sleep reading material.  I'm about to finish the CEB translation of the New Testament.
What I should be reading:
  • My Advent books
  • Books I planned to read before Christmas: Merry Christmas Alex Cross by James Petterson and The 12 Clues of Christmas by Rhys Bowen. I traditionally like to read Skipping Christmas by John Grisham but I'm not sure I can fit it in this year.
  • Relentless is the December book for my Dean Koontz GoodReads book Group.
So what are you reading?

Just finished "We Were Liars" by e. lockhart. Weird but very fast read. I want to start some Christmas-themed reading and will def read David Sedaris' "Holidays on Ice" -- book of funny essays about Christmas.
