Wait, you read more than 1 book at once?

Props to you, I couldn't even read one.

Hi!

Which books are they??

I usually hold one each hand behind my back and ask someone to choose left or right. Then if i'm disappointed I know which one I actually want to read first!

Defo read one at a time!

If you do read them can you start with ‘Me Talk Pretty One Day’? Please. It would be good to discuss 😁

Normally I'll read between one and two books at once. But one will tend to be an audiobook which I'll listen to before I go to sleep and the other one is normally a paperback which I'll read whenever I get chance
Are the books your reading roughly the same length? Maybe you could start with the shortest one, or the one you most want to read first.

If it is about novels, I read just one book at once, but if it is about non-fictional books, I can read up to three.

In other words: you don't read them through. Sounds like that you are not an avid reader.

I just get bored of it like with most things, also reading for too long really hurts my eyes so that doesn't help

One at a time cause I read fantasy books mainly, which tends to have a lot of characters, political faction and just a lot of moving parts in general. So reading more than one at a time and all that stuff would just get jumbled in my head I'm guessing. Plus fantasy books tend to be longer than the average so one at a time is more than enough.

If you can't read anymore after some hours, take a break and continue at later time or the next day. Can't read a big book in a day too. I need a week or even one and a half to finish as a rule.
