Booking Through Thursday: Break

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.)

I initially thought this was such an utterly foreign concept to me, but I realize I’ve been doing it during The Lord of the Rings readalong. I’m trying to tear my way through Last Snow so that I can finish The Two Towers in peace.

I also tend to do this with reading for school, especially plays–I read Waiting for Godot yesterday in the warm sunshine. (It’s better than I remembered, but there’s still this mean and cynical undercurrent that makes me want to reread Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead just to wash the taste out.) However, if I’m not taking a month to read a book, this is usually the only kind of break I take–for school.
