But I don't really enjoy this setup. I really would rather read consecutively, because that's how I like to and how my brain works. However, I've found that overall I read less when I do because on my foggy-brained days I'll end up just staring out the bus window or dozing off. Taking a second book with me combats those actions.
As for series.. it depends on the series. In some cases I just breeze through all 4-10 books in a row. Sometimes I will read 2-4 books, stop for a while, get back and so on.
I cover the basics for me. 2 History, then (1)historical novel that corresponds, (1)biography that corresponds, that's four. Included in the above is my 37 in 11 oldies read.
The remaining three are flexibles...a short read of great interest, Wm. Shakespeares complete works, or back to Robert Frost complete works.
no TV service (I remember when it was free and all you needed was rabbit ears or a wire hanger)
I read a lot of short stories and almost any genre you can think of so my mood flips between titles.
And all the reading I do for work helps - I need to switch gears way too often :)
