What about the rest of you?
The only time I ran into trouble was when I was reading 2 different novels that dealt with Jackie Robinson at the same time. Things started to get jumbled a bit at times!
I tend to have a dozen books from the library checked out simultaneously, but some are just to look at and figure out whether I want to read it.
I usually have at least three books going at a time. The only restrictions, as Mantra points out, is to avoid works on similar topics. Currently I am on the Elvis biog, Last Train to Memphis, and The Poisonwood Bible, and Spook.
By the way, it is neat how Touchstones work!

Current reads for me now are Crusaders in the Courts by Jack Greenberg, a good historical portrait of the landmark civil rights cases by an NAACP attorney who was an advocate in many of them. It would help if someone had done basic fact-checking, e.g. Harry Truman is twice identified as being the President in 1944 and a few other glaring problems, but it is a valuable read, especially for white guys who do not really have a clue how bad it once was to be non-white.
I tried Destined for Destiny. While I am a flaming liberal, the style of humor is not mine.
About to start the sixth Harry Potter.
And for pure recreation...Internal Revenue Service Publication 17.
Yes, I do have a small refund coming.

However, note that the best books tend to be several books in one, do they not?
Look at Moby Dick, a bit o novel a bit o metaphysical musing a bit o novel a bit o musing. I wish more authors would do that, because i do not care to have all the fact and fiction mushed together as pablum.
Maybe we should work on splicing books, or to use the current musical term, mixing them.
