1. I AM reading more than one at a time. I find that when this is going on, my knitting suffers.
2. I'm reading 3: Cutting, The Richest Man in Babylon, and Marriage of True Minds. The one that I'm most actively reading is Marriage because I want to toss it onto my PBS list (and also, it's an irresistibly hilarious little novel). Richest is shortest but it's more tedious than I expected when I first started in, and I am close to done with Cutting but I can only take it one bit at a time. So right now, I'm reading two heavy books and one light. It feels very out of balance for me.
3. It's not normal for me to be reading more than one book at a time. Usually this happens when one is too serious, or too practical, or too meaty, and I need a light novel or something else for periodic relief. Really though, I only like to be reading one book at a time, so reading multiple is almost uncomfortable for me.
4. Current reads all go on my nightstand. So do the 'on deck' reads. And those deemed 'on deck' are changed out often, depending on my mood. And I don't always read an on-deck book next. So really, I'm not sure why I have this part of the system.
How about you? Play along here.
