    I usually read at least one or two novel and a comic at the same time. Right now my novels are Star Wars: Catalyst by James Luceno, and Star Trek: TNG: Collateral Damage by David Mack. My current comic is Batman Vol 3: Death of the Family written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, with art by Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion, and Jock, colors by FCO Plascencia and Dave Baron, letters by Richard Starkings, Comicraft's Jimmy Betancourt, Sal Cipriano, and Taylor Esposito. They are all the digital versions.

    Why do you read two novels at the same time?

    I am reading all the Expanse novels, and after that I continue with the remaining Star Trek, Firefly or Stephen King novels

    I'm easily distracted, but I found if I read a 2 or 3 books at one time, I have less of a chance of getting sidetracked.
    For a while I used to just start any book that caught my eye, but I stopped and decided no more than 2 or 3, when I ended up trying to read 8 or 9 books all at the same time.

    Everytime I read this thread's title I'm reading this forum.
    I might not be the only one.

    I just started Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. I've been looking forward to reading it for quite a while. I hope it's as good as I've heard it is.

    I finished up Batman: Death of the Family last night, it was really good. Probably going to hold off on starting any new comics or anything else until I finish up Star Wars: Catalyst.

    I am trying to read all of Lillian Jackson Braun books. The Cat Who books there are like 30. I don't have them all, but am getting the ones I don't have from the library. I have about 8 more to go, I think. This is my COVID-19, reading victory, I never had time to read them before!

    I'm reading Josh Gates' 2011 book, Destination Truth: Memoirs of a Monster Hunter. It's just boring enough to be a good bedtime book.

    I finished up Star Wars: Catalyst a couple days ago, and started the digital version of the comic book collection Monstress Vol. 1: Awakening, written by Marjorie Liu, with art by Sana Takeda, and letters and design by Rus Wooton. I've decided to just focus on one thing at a time, so once I'm done with Awakening, I'll go back to ST:TNG: Collateral Damage and finish that up.

    Just finished ‘Human Game: Hunting the Great Escape Murderers’ by Simon Read. It is about the British investigator and his team who hunted down the Gestapo officers responsible for the murder of the 50 men who were killed after they were recaptured following the mass escape from Stalag Luft III. Quite an interesting book.

    Finished A Place Called Freedom by Ken Follett. It was Ok, but I wouldn't call it one of his best. Will be starting Cold Storage by David Koepp this weekend.
