So over the years Ciwt had heard people talking about reading several books at once. This seemed odd to her and she dismissed the concept. Now, with months on end of cold-wind-rain (c-w-r) and getting a bit bored with the book group novel she's been reading, she decided to Google the topic.
Well, turns out having multiple books going can have all sorts of positive effects like keeping the reader stimulated when he/she has run out of steam on one, and enlarging one's understanding of the world for two. In Ciwt's case there might be the dissipation of guilt factor as well. She's not a library borrower so she buys books, puts them in her bookcase then, more often than she cares to admit, never takes them off to read them.
She's going to give multiples a try; her big question is whether she'll forget the characters and plot on several books at a time. (Likely). If that happens, she'll take a lesson from her cats. As you might notice from he picture above, Ciwt's cats have no trouble whatsoever with multiple toys and couldn't care less if they forget the one they were just carried away with.
