Do you ever read more than one thing at a time? Have two different books in progress? Maybe one is for a book club, and one is a book you've been wanting to read for a long time.
Or maybe you started something, and then a book you were waiting for came out so you started that right away?
Right now I am reading an historical fiction novel, and doing some research for a new novel idea of my own. Switching back and forth between the French Revolution and Greek Mythology has been interesting. And then I just participated in a 30 minute writing prompt on Michelle Zink's website set in Regency England. My brain is going a little nuts with the history tonight.
How about you? What sorts of things do you read simultaneously, and how does it affect your view of those books?
