I am one of those readers that thought that reading more than one book at a time was insane and 100% not possible.
How could you focus on ONE book with another plot running through your head? I even thought that doing this would not be fair to authors because you would not be fully invested in their book...
I WAS WRONG.
Recently I've been reading 2-3 books at a time!!
With my ADHD I never thought this could be a possibility for me, but it has been AMAZING! I've even combined reading with listening to an audio book — I read at night and listen to the audio book during the day while I work. Win, win!
With my busy, busy daily schedules, my reading time had suffered A LOT and I was noticing that I would fall asleep fairly quickly once I started reading in bed. Mind you, this still happens some nights, but I also noticed that if I started a new book (sometimes deadlines will motivate a girl to do this! Ha!), I would get invested in the new story line and stay up longer. See, some nights I feel like reading a more angst-driven book, while other nights, I'm in the mood for a lighter read.
So I alternate.
Currently, I am in the middle of 2 books. One YA Romantic Suspense and one Contemporary Romance. And I'm fully invested in BOTH.
Do YOU read more than one book at a time? If so, do you have a maximum number of books? Feel free to comment below or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) about this! The most I've read is 3 at a time and it has worked out! Now, when it comes to reviewing them, I've struggled a bit because "reviews due" have gone from just the 1 to 2-3 — at a time! Haven't fallen behind on deadlines just yet, though! LOL!
