Books For Company about how many books we have on the go at any one time. A lot of people said that they would get confused reading more than one book at once- others said they had no problem and read different books at different times of day, or read one e-book and one hardback depending on where they were.

Here was my answer:
Usually it is about 3 at a time- but there is a very good reason! I read one book at home before bed and in the mornings on my days off, but if it is a heavy hardback book or a book on my kindle, I don't want to carry this backwards and forwards between home and work so I have a small, light paperback for work. I get an hours lunchbreak at work and I love to find a quiet corner and sit with my book and my sandwich. The third book is an audiobook. Any time I can't hold a book in my hands I listen to an audiobook. This is every morning when I am getting dressed and putting my makeup on, and in the evening when I am cooking dinner and doing the washing up. So that's why the three:
1) Book for home (heavy or kindle)
2) Book to read while at work
I'm quite good at being able to compartmentalise the different stories and rarely get mixed up- but I have to make sure that all the books are a bit different, eg. I couldn't read 2 werewolf books at once or anything too similar. I would get confused if the books had the same main character's name, but usually I am fine.
