Voracious Reader Here

I have always loved to read, from the first moment I picked up a book and could understand it.

I always have several books with me when I go out of the house, and now that I have a Kindle and a Nook, it's worse. But, on a positive note, I have lots to choose from.

On a not-so-positive note, I have lots to choose from.

Does anyone ever have a problem deciding *which* book to read? Ever go back and re-read old books, that you really enjoyed?

Do you keep the books you've read, or do you give them away or sell them, to make room for more?

I like to read sets of books, so I often keep them, so I can refer back to the previous book(s), if necessary. I seldom thin out my library; the last time was when I moved and didn't want to have to pay so much for moving them, so I don't a few 100 to the library and a few to Goodwill and the Salvation Army.

It's great to see I'm not the only one that reads several books at once.

My favorite series is The Lymond Chronicles, by Dorothy Dunnett. The books are pretty complex, but I always enjoy them. However, I find that about once every five years is about right to re-read them (there are six books in the set, and I read my first Dunnett book in 1977).

I have a few faveys I love to read over and over!

Man, that soooo sounds like me, minus the kindle!! On my nook i'm reading 7 or8 books, there is a book in my bag, and two on my shelf I am reading, and like three books I'm reading in the store!

I aplso reread books, and have the worst time deciding what to read!!

I do that, too, which is part of the reason that it's so hard to get rid of them.
