I've always seen people who read multiple books at once and I never really understood it. I thought isn't it confusing to be reading different storylines at the same time like that. However, my tune has changed. I've started reading multiple books at once I'm really enjoying it. Here's a few reasons why:
1. It helps me get through boring parts in booksI've found that picking up another book actually help's me get through a boring section. This also really helps with slumps. I don't get into slumps nearly as much!
2. I'm a mood reader
Often I pick up a book I'm dying to read, I'll be loving it and there's absolutely nothing wrong with it, but I'll find myself drifting from it. When I used read one book at a time I'd find myself enjoying books less because by the time I'd got about halfway through I'd be in a different mood and therefore want to read something else. This used to mean I wouldn't enjoy books as much as I could of because I was kind of forcing myself to read them so I could get onto something else. Now that I read multiple books at once though, it isn't a problem. I can switch between books depending on my mood and it's just an all round better experience for me.
3. Books disappear from my TBR list a lot quicker
So I know this one might not make any sense because I'm not actually reading the books any quicker than I would if I read them one at a time. In my head though, I am smashing through my TBR. It gives me this weird sense of accomplishment to see my TBR list go down and down (even if I continue to add books to it so it doesn't really go down at all...)
