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

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
