Reading [Lessons from 2021]

9 Jan

I got stuck reading a very technical book last year. But I didn’t want to start a new one, because I DO want to read that book.

I’m afraid to start a book while I’m in the middle of one.

What if I start a second book and get confused what was happening in the first book? Or or the characters are? Or some subtle detail that matters?

Or what if starting a second book while reading another book makes both books blend in my mind, and I don’t remember what is going on in either of them?

If I start a second book before I’ve completed the last, maybe I won’t ever finish the first book.

What if reading two books simultaneously, takes even longer?

I don’t know how to read two books at a time, you can see.

But I don’t want to get stuck on one book again this year. I would like to read every day. So I feel like I need to make some kind of rules so I don’t leave that first book unfinished.  It’s a whole thing.  Maybe I’ll leave the first book out until I finish it?

Does anyone else read multiple books at a time, and have any insight? I guess also I could Google this…
