Just wondering: am I very different from other people in that I tend to read several books at the same time?
When I've discussed this with other folks, the main objection I hear is that it would be impossible to keep track of what's going on in each book if one is reading more than one.
That seems to me to be an empty objection: how many TV series does the typical viewer follow these days? Certainly there's no lack of ability to keep track of which character belongs on which program and is doing what to or with whom. Why would reading be different?
At any rate, I'd be curious to know how many others read more than one book at a time, and how many books you're reading right now.
