For so long I could only ever be reading one book at a time. I had tried in the past to be working on several at once but found that one would always draw me in more and I would continually gravitate towards it when I set aside some time to read, leaving the others to fall by the wayside.
The feeling of immersing myself in one world and familiarising myself with one set of characters definitely appealed to me too much but with my ‘to read’ pile growing ever larger, I decided it was finally time to see if I could overcome it. After all, I can be watching several TV shows or listening to several albums during the same period of time; why should reading be any different?
I feel like I’m getting there gradually and for a while now I’ve always had two books in progress at any given time – usually one physical book and one on my kindle – but I must admit that one still often takes priority making me wonder if it may just be how my brain works best and so this got me thinking, do you prefer to focus your attention wholeheartedly on one specific story at a time or can you chop-and-change between several?
