Why do I keep starting books? (before I finish the previous one...)

Wool Omnibus (Silo, #1) (Wool, #1-5) - Hugh Howey Love's Will - Meredith Whitford Just This Once - Rosalind  James Doctor Who: Apollo 23 - Justin Richards

Only the one dead tree book on the go at the moment - Wool, which was recommended to me by our school librarian. I've read the first section of it, and I'm hooked, but now that I'm back at work after the summer holidays it's hard to have enough brain left at the end of the day to be able to read it.

On the phone I have Love's Will  AND Just This Once in progress via the kindle ap. Really enjoying Love's Will, and happily knocked off another chapter and a bit on the ferry back from the city this afternoon. I find Meredith Whitford's writing style very appealing, and this is an interesting read to follow up The Time Traveller's Guide to Elizabethan England   which I read late last year. Just This Once finally wore down my resistance... Hero plays rugby for the Blues (which is local team here in Auckland, and I just renewed my season tix!) Seems the ideal time to read this one, even if I am still in the middle of Love's Will.

I have Doctor Who: Apollo 23 on audiobook, giving me something to listen to while waiting for the library to get the audiobook I really want (I Am Half-Sick of Shadows) . I'm actually enjoying it a lot more than I did to start with, although the narrator has some very annoying accents and pronunciations. I have been seduced by the idea of the Apollo program continuing in secret into the 1980s.
