I’ve discovered that reading four books (well, listening to one on CD) at the same time means that I don’t follow any of them very well. And at the rate I’m going, it looks as though I might be reading those same four books for the next three years.
I think I’ll keep it down to two at a time in the future.
For all you readers out there, I’m curious—do you have any particular system or approach to your literature habit?
If you have kids at home, when do you find time to read?
Do you intentionally alternate genres or just choose randomly?
How many do you usually have cracked at once?
Do you have any tips for reading and retaining information from multiple books at once?
Do you keep track of what you read or have reading goals?
And finally—What do you like to read? Are you fiction or non?
