I read groups or themes of books together. Last year I read tons of marketing books until I found the answer I needed.
This year I'm reading books about writing and painting craft. I put down one and pick up another, read a few chapters bookmark the page and go on to the next. Like visiting different friends. Sometimes I finish a book in one reading..
Unfortunately, I'm sick a lot so this is something I can do easily in bed.
COLOR, A Natural History of The Palette by Victoria Finlay. 2004. Bought this in NYC at the Modern Museum of Art. I'm a painter. I love color!! Interesting book, interesting author.
