Currently, I'm reading (technically "studying" is more accurate) seven different versions of the I Ching, four different versions of the Tao Te Ching.
I'm rereading ZEN AND THE ART OF MOTORCYCLE MAINTENANCE. I am really getting more out of it this go around.
Not an hour ago I arrived home from Borders where I purchased HOW TO READ A BOOK (highly recommended).
Also reading LOVING WHAT IS by Byron Katie.
Just finished LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (very good vampire genre).
IN MY QUEUE To Read: THE CURIOUS CASE OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT, HAMLET, LIGHT, DROOD (Dan Simmons is the MAN!), DIES THE FIRE, DON QUIXOTE, IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME. I want to knock of the shorter "fluff" novels first so that I can really appreciate the new Simmons novel (something like 900 pages) and, of course, IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME could take a year to finish (all six volumes, 3000 pages that is).
I think it's silly when people complain that they "CAN'T" read more than one book at a time ("preferences" are another matter entirely) - after all in school we all read 5-6 books at the same time! At the very least, I would say TWO is very doable. If you have one Fiction and one Non-Fiction, this would be very manageable.
