Monogamy

Booking Through Thursday 

One book at a time? Or more than one? If more, are they different types/genres? Or similar?

This is another quirk of mine, I guess the result of my mis-wired brain.  (Examples:  one and two.)  I can read a total of two books at a time, provided that one of them is fiction and one of them is nonfiction, as you can see from my “What I’m Reading Right Now” section of the side bar on my home page.  It’s not that I can’t keep track of what I’m reading if I try to read more than one of either kind.  It’s just that starting another book before finishing one has always seemed odd to me, except when one book is fiction and the other is not.  Maybe the left side of my brain and the right side of my brain need to go to couples therapy?

    Maybe . . . although on that principle the reading part of my brain needs to be treated for multiple personalities; it can happily juggle two or three or more books at once.

    No I’m the same, one novel, one non-fiction and loads of poetry.
