Do you frequently read more than one book at a time? Do you try to limit this to a certain number? Do you have different books for different purposes/topics?
I’m usually only able to read one book at a time. I’ve tried to read multiple books at one time, but I always end up focusing more on one than the others, and finishing it first. So, it doesn’t really make any sense for me to try to read more than one, anyway.
If I start a book and find it doesn't hold my attention, I usually never finish reading that book. I have at times made myself finish reading the book, thinking it would get better as I read on, but usually if I'm about half way through the book and it still doesn't peak my interest, it goes to the trash can or the used book store. I have learned after many years of reading, if it ain't fun in the first third of the book, it won't get any better as I go along.
I do read different books of different purposes or topics. They are of a more serious nature, which I read each week. But as for my recreational reading I try to limit it to one at a time.
