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.)

Yes, I do take breaks when reading a book.  Sometimes, it is because the book is going slowly and I need to recharge my batteries in order to enjoy the experience.  These days I put a book aside if I have to finish another book with a hard deadline such as a book club meeting.  Since moving to MA, I have been trying to figure out how to meet people.  One thing I love to do is read, so I joined a FOUR book clubs.  I need to drop out of some, but all of them over something unique.  As a result, I am usually behind on finishing books and things get put aside in order for me to meet discussion deadlines.
