    sometimes I juggle 3-4 books at a time, without any loss to my ability to focus on them and get the most out of it. My ability to do this varies. Sometimes I stick to one and just focus on that

    Reading more than 5 pages a day from ANY book is dangerous

    Jk, read at your own pace. Whether that means a book a day or a book a month. Tho if it's a book a month, and let's say you live for 40 more years, that's 480 more books to put it in perspective. So every book should count.

    On a personal note, I read a book every 2 days or so. But that's because I read a lot of graphic novels, sooo not exactly the same amount of time committment compared to a full length novel like War and Peace or some shit

        Double space between paragraphs has been the web standard for decades. You can conform to your in-group without grasping at straws

          Being able to recognize dumbasses who are not worth listening to is an extremely important time-saving skill in life. One that is proudly honed by all intelligent individuals.

        because you give your sentences space from each other

    I easily could but don't want to because I live with other people and if they see me reading different books all the time they might think I'm constantly getting filtered and dropping books

    yes, except if you're reading a secondary source in which case checking on the primary when referenced is good

    I read 2-3 books at a time because I like to read different kinds of book in different contexts. For example I like to have a novel or intellectual book during the day and a chill biography or other nonfiction for bed time.

    I read many book at the same time, maybe even 6/7. I realized that I manage to read a lot more by doing this instead of blocking myself on just one book that maybe some days I don't want to read because I'm thinking about another one. I read 3 times more than before when I was on a 1 book basis. I go back and forth between all the books I'm reading depending on my interest of the moment and get to finish them faster than before. It's all depending on my mood and on what type of focus I'm on, I read pretty much everything, essays, art books, pulp fiction, classic and modern literature etc.
    There's also the fact that I read in 4 languages so it also depends on what language my brain wants to churn in that particular moment.

    I like to read one fiction and one non-fiction book at the same time. I have a relatively low iq, but somehow I still manage without overstraining myself.

    if they are non fiction that you want to learn from then this is actually a good idea. there is a learning effect called the interleaving effect. so it is better to learn multiple things during one day instead of doing block learning. should apply to books.

    for fiction i do not really see what the problem would be unless you are already a super slow reader and you struggle remembering what happened in the book so far.

    I'd say only 2 because you would fall off topic. (Especially in long books).

    It’s fine if they aren’t similar. I usually do two at a time or one with short stories/essays/poems mixed in. Sometimes you need a bit of a switch up if you aren’t particularly in the mood for your main read. My rule is that if I’m reading a book I have to read some of it everyday

    watch Paperbird on youtube to see how multiple-tracks reading can be done in a manner similar to drifting through literature like a train without breaks

    I have a morning book and an evening book. It works well because I am encouraged to read during both windows I get each day

      What constitutes a “morning” and an “evening” book? How do you know which is which before reading them? Or is it a completely arbitrary decision, where, therefore, you must be an indiscernible tasteless pleb?

        I read the more difficult book in the morning because there are less distractions.

    I enjoy doing it that way. I'm usually reading two or three books at a time. The compliment or counter balance one another like components of a meal. I just finished King Lear and I'm two-thirds of the way through the Oresteia. They went together well. It really highlighted what an influence Aeschylus was on Shakespeare. Harold Bloom really downplayed it unfairly. I'm also learning Ancient Greek, so I've been reading various pieces in the Greek along with my textbook, including the Aeschylian plays I've been reading in the Lattimore and E.D.A. Morshead.

    After this, I think I'll either start with Sophocles and Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, or else Julius Caesar and another of the Barsetshire novels.

    yes it’s fine, my reading consists of one french book another in german and one in english, ive thought of throwing in a book in spanish but that would be overkill to do 4 simultaneously

    If you're just having mild cravings for another book but still enjoying the book you're reading then stick to it until you get sick of it.

    If you're truly bored of a book and it's actually a struggle to continue then switch to another book.
