To prevent any comments from the peanut gallery, no, this is not referring to some kind of weird two-book simultaneous reading. Rather, I was wondering if anyone here starts another book before finishing whatever else they're working on at the time. A lot of my friends simply read one book cover to cover, and then start on the next one. They like to make fun of me, because at any given time I might be in the middle of three to four books, usually at least two. Sometimes it's a practical matter of one being a hardcover and therefore not as conducive to travel as a paperback, and sometimes there's no real reason. I always thought it was normal until I got to college, when it was pointed out that this behavior is not the norm. Does anyone else do this?
