Is it possible to read 3 books a month reading 10 pages in each book a night?

Someone told me they do this and I mean it might be doable, but how much of each book do you really retain. I know me and I would begin to cross them up with each other. Any thoughts??

  • I used to read more than one book at a time, would have one upstairs, another downstairs and maybe one at work. I didn't get them mixed up, but prefer to read one at a time. It would be possible to read 3 books a month using the above method, if the books were 300 pages or less each. I personall read 4 to 6 books a month, depending on length.

  • I know people who read several books at once. I could NEVER do that because I would get confused but there are people who can.

  • Why in the world would you do that? It might be possible - depending on the # of pages. But I just don't know why. I'd read one after another - not concurrently. But try it - maybe you'll like it.

  • I guess it would be possible, but I personally wouldn't enjoy the books as much.

  • yes its possible, i can read 300 pg books in one night. That's only with about 4 hours of reading. I'm a very fast reader.

  • I read several books at once, average about 3 books a week. Right now, I'm reading two Anne Rice books and a Dean Koontz book. The trick to reading several at once is to read them in different places ... bedroom, living room, vehicle, etc.
