Couples activity: Reading together

Alan and I started reading another book together. This one is Murakami's latest novel, 1Q84. We've read many of the same books before but have only read a book together once, reaching the end at about the same time. We hadn't plan on doing it, but we both somehow got sucked into the story and couldn't stop reading. (It was this book). Since it was so much fun we decided to do it again. It's kind of like the experience of watching a movie together except it's at each person's own pace which I think makes things a lot more interesting. You can either feel really antsy if you have to wait for the other person to catch up to where you are or really excited if you can tell from the other person that you're about to get to a juicy turning point in the story. Have you ever done it?

Does reading scripture out loud together count? I usually read a book first THEN let him borrow it. I'm just selfish that way... ;)

haha! I hear ya. Sometimes sharing a book can be hard if we both want to read at the same time.

My guy is always trying to get me to read the books he's really excited about. We've tried, but then one person speeds WAY ahead of the other and it doesn't even feel like we're reading it together.
