I know that a lot of book bloggers read multiple books at once, and a lot of non-bloggers don’t. I often get asked how I can do it since I usually have 2 books on the go: one regular book and one audiobook.
My answer is to always choose different genres. I find that if I try to read multiple books in the same genre, I can easily get confused and mix up the details. If I choose books from totally different genres, then the details stay defined, and I can more easily satisfy my mood reading habits.
For instance, as I write the post, I’m reading Sisters of Treason, which is a historical fiction about the Tudor family, and I’m listening to Catching Fire, which I’m sure you know is a YA dystopian. Very different topics and genres.
While I find it easy to read one book and listen to another, I cannot physically read multiple books, or listen to multiple audiobooks. The experience is too similar, even with differing topics. So I am limited in my ability, but I’m okay with that. I read quick enough that I rarely have cause to want to more books more quickly.
What about you? Are you able to read multiple books at once? Do you have any tips or strategies in doing so?
