Susan and I share a habit, one I find common among “readers” of all sort. I am reading three or four books, each in a different location. Currently, the books I am reading include The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Texts on Type, God is Not One, and two Che biographies (Che and Exposing the Real Che). Because these books are really collections of short essays or stories, it is easy to read a chapter or story in a single sitting. I don’t know that I would read a novel in quite the same way. I tend to read novels in much larger chunks; it is hard for me to keep long stories sorted in my mind.
I have been told I should read one book at a time, but that seems nearly impossible. Does anyone insist on reading one book at time?
