Do you prefer to read one book or multiple books at a time? - June 21st 2017, 03:08 AM

Do you prefer reading one book at a time or do you have a couple books going at a time?

Personally, I prefer reading one book at a time. It isn't that I can't read more books than that and there have been times when I have. I just, I don't like it all that much. I see a lot of people on goodreads and booktube who will read a few books at once so it got me wondering what other people do.

I prefer to read one book at a time, although I have frequently read several books at the same time. When I do that now I sometimes forget which bits happened in which book and mix them up so it's easier to read one at a time.

I definitely prefer to read one book at a time. I only read two novels simultaneously if there's a reason for it, for example when I go on a trip being halfway through a book and I have to take a different one.

I have trouble reading anything at all, so definitely prefer to only read one book at a time!

I prefer multiple books at a time. I don't find it hard to keep track of the different plots and I find it easier to read multiple books at a time.
That way I can have a book in various locations and can read when I have a few minutes here or there. Currently, I have a book by my bed, two in my bathroom (bathtub, near my toilet) and in my bag.

I'm not opposed to reading one at a time and will do that if it's for school but usually, I have multiple books on the go.

I've done this in the past and it's one of the biggest reasons I've read multiple books.

I used to have a book in the bathroom and then one on my night stand and then one that would be my main focus.

I tend to read multiple books at once, usually between three and five. Part of that is for convenience as has already been mentioned - I always take a book with me when I go out for the day, but sometimes I'll be reading one that isn't portable enough (e.g. currently I'm on the fifth Harry Potter book and there's no way I'm carrying that around in my bag all day). The other part is that sometimes I'm in the mood for different things, so I like having options. I usually don't read two books of the same genre at the same time, though, which makes it easier for me to keep track of all the plots and also stops me getting bored.

Previously I tried to read several book at once. But once my friend noticed that I mix the story lines of the books, when I try to discuss the novels(both of them were fantasy, so it was easy to get confused). That's why I try to make some break between the reading of each book now.

I prefer reading one book at a time, and this even applies to fanfiction as well.

It's easy to get into that frame of mind where you finish a chapter or two of one book and tell yourself "right, that's my reading for today" and the next day, you are just so keen to continue with that same book, so to even glance at a different book is out of the question.

This has to be what happens with me when I read:P

See it depends. I can read multiple non-fiction books but can only focus on one fictional book at once. I find that a lot of non-fiction books, like ones such as indigenous women and feminism, are hard to digest all in one go so I'll read a chapter and take a break while reading a novel. But my novels tend to be things I'll blow through cause they're easier to read quickly
