Since I started blogging (and even before that) I've noticed that there are many people out there who tend to read more than one book at a time. This phenomenon has always amazed me! I wouldn't even attempt to do that (unless I was reading one for school already, for example).
I can picture myself getting confused, mixing up the characters, taking forever to finish one book, and generally being a huge, disorganized mess of a reader.
I get even more amazed when the two books that someone is reading are very similar in terms of genre or plot. Wouldn't it be hard to keep the facts straight? Wouldn't it be hard to understand the characters? And more importantly, how do you manage to choose what book to pick up and read? Please enlighten me!
I guess you could say that I'm a bit jealous of those who can handle reading multiple books at a time. Personally, I like to concentrate and spend all my time on one novel before moving on to the next. But we all have different reading techniques, and that's why I'm writing a post about this topic.
Are you one of those people who reads more than one book at a time? Why? How do you manage?
