Can you read multiple novels simultaneously?
I find that I get too distracted too easily to hold my attention to more than one novel, like I forget what one story is about and have to go back and re-read the last few pages before I can continue again.
Unfortunately, it means that I’m forever putting off big books because I can’t take it with me on the train because as if I’m not doing long term damage to my posture already, working at a desk job all day. What I need is a nice long weekend where I can just be lazy at home.
The only times I can swap between two books is when one is fiction and the other is non- fiction but only when the non-fiction is a behemoth of a thing and generally impossible to consume in a few sittings.
This isn’t exactly an intellectually stimulating post but it just occurred to me as I was waiting for my ramen to arrive. As always, how do you guys balance multiple agendas?
