Do you read multiple books?

These days I am reading multiple books. This is the 1st time I’m doing that because otherwise I used to be very particular about just sticking to a single book. I don’t plan to do it always, but it just happened by chance.

During the weekends I started reading an Amritlal Nagar novel as I completely wanted to shut off my digital consumption. But then I try to read every day these days so I downloaded JK Rowling’s latest crime thriller The Cuckoo’s Calling. A couple of years ago I decided to read On Writing by Stephen King and since I’m working on my own book, I thought, what would be a better time to read this book than now (I am so glad I started reading this book). So I also started reading this. Therefore, I am reading 3 books.

Am I getting mixed up? I am not. It’s not that I’m reading all the 3 books in a single day. For instance, I haven’t read the crime thriller for almost a week because I’m focusing on reading the Stephen King book as well as working on my own book.

In fact there are a few more books that I had stopped reading midway either because I got bored or I thought they were a complete waste of time, for example Moby Dick. Although it is a highly acclaimed book somehow I found it very boring. Having said that, I may again start reading it one of these days, but after finishing at least one of the books I’m currently reading.
