    Back when my vision was still excellent and I could read a 250-300 page book in a day (now after half a dozen pages I get sleepy), I would be reading three books at a time. Not simultaneously of course but more like 100 pages out of one, then a similar amount out of the other two.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Back when I had two eyes I would read two books at once, one with each eye.

    Sort of. I've finished a couple already. One of them I started a while back, but plan to finish on vacation next week. Another one I've started is on pause until I finish one I got via ILL and don't have for very long. The history of Russia is my current bathroom book, so I expect that will take a while to get through. I won't take the library books with me on vacation, because knowing my luck I'd leave one behind.

    Didn't you mention that you have a subway commute? The reading time that would allow is something to be envious of.
    I want something good to die for to make it beautiful to live.
