Do you read two books at the same time. Is it ok with a fictional book an a non-fictional one?
>>
typically ill have an easy-reading book alongside a harder book

examples of recent easy reads: ham on rye, breakfast of champions, a room of one's own

examples of recent hard reads: capital in the twenty-first century, the myth of sisyphus, the ambassadors

I generally go through phases of balancing multiple books at once to dedicating myself to one singular title. It just depends on the situation. Do what feels right.
>>
>>7682222 (√)

My only principle is to not read more than one at a time from the same author or books that are too similar. Also I generally keep it to just one or two at a time.

>typically ill have an easy-reading book alongside a harder book

This, though I do typically try to read the hard book by itself at first. Currently I'm reading a massive history of India, and I got a little burned out on that so I'm reading a biography of Catharine the Great alongside it.

I must have read 15 or so books along with Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

Used to read a fiction book and a history book at the same time. I found I was more interested in one than the other and my focus on the other suffered.
Noe I just read one at a time. The exception is that I read a few chapters of the bible every night.
>>
I'm a Swede and more proficient in Swedish than english so what I typically do is I read pleb stuff or easy classics such as Orwell in English to improve glossary and spelling etc and simulatiniously I read some canonical stuff in Swedish
>>
>>7682222
Yes, I usually have a novel and a philosophy book going.
>>
I read the Bible every day of my life along with another book, does the count?
>>
I usually read a comic at the same time as a book

The Bible is one of those books that is so tedious and boring, reading a little bit everyday is the only way to finish it.

The Franks were Christians.

>>7683090
There are earlier Christians but generally Clovis the First, who died more than 300 years before Charlemagne was born, is credited with the Frank's conversion to Christianity.

I do this too, but don't you call Orwell pleb.
