I'm getting into the habit where I read more than one book at once, but I have so many books, I can't help it!

Recently started "Killing Floor", the first of the Jack Reacher Novels. I've heard good things about the series, so I wanted to start a new series after recently finishing the most recent GoT book.
"How Right You are, Jeeves"

by Wodehouse, of course.

There's a dachshund in this one, of course.

You and me both! I generally divide things into "books for work" and "books for bedtime". At work I tend to read non-fiction or textbooks, and take notes; and my nightstand always has six or seven books that I'm working my way through, plus a few graphic novels.

You might want to wait fifteen years or so for him to finish the series. :-)

You never know he may be a very, very slow reader.

Hadn't thought of that! :-) I read the whole Wheel of Time in a few months so I didn't think of it!

I just started the first book of the Wheel of Time last week. I'm a slow reader as well. Although, I've been proofreading my copy and finding a lot of errors that I must highlight and fix. At this pace, I may be done by the end of the year with the series. So far I am really enjoying it. Just got to the chapter where they crossed the Taren on the ferry. So, quite a ways to go.

Right now, Suicidas (Suicidals), by Henrique Fialho, a friend, Clarice Lispector's Contos -- a collection of her short stories --, Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice and William Burroughs' Naked Lunch. I'm also rereading L'Herbe Rouge, by Boris Vian, and the usual poetry books by Bukowski, Nuno Júdice, Herberto Helder, Seamus Heaney and a few other favourites.
Well, I recently read "The Gates" by John Connolly. Really enjoyed it, so I started the next book, but today realized I'm just not interested in pursuing it at the moment.

Last night I started "The Broom of the System" by David Foster Wallace, but I'm also considering the first Joe Abercrombie series. And I'm almost finished with "On A Pale Horse".

I hate it when I get in this mood - I want to read everything at once. That usually means I end up reading five or six at a time and it takes a lot longer to finish anything.
Only 6 books now, digital and paper combined (just managed to finish some and not start new books):

- Peter Daanen - "De laatste stomme zondaar": historical novel about horrible prosecution of gay people in Holland in the 18th century, with tortures for 'confessions' and names, with death penalties given for 'a silent sin'.

- Denise Chong - "The girl in the picture": biography Kim Phuc, the girl running down the street with napalm burns screaming after a bomb raid in the Vietnam war

- Bernard Lietaer - "Geld en Duurzaamheid" (Money and sustainability): about how our current system of fiat money ruins both the environment, social equality and the economy and what alternative models could be, by introducing an ecosystem of different kinds of currency co-existing.

- Robert Hughes - "De fatale kust" (The fatal coast): A history of Australia as it was born out of prison camps (a thousand pages, it will take me several years to finish it).

- "Maps and Civilization"

- "An archeology of Images - Iconology and Cosmology in Iron Age and Roman Europe",

oh, there's a seventh, started this week:

- Terry Pratchett - "The science of discworld".

7 is an improvement, as I used to sometimes read 6 or more books on paper besides 6 or more books on my tablet. It's getting a bit more surveyable now (had to look that one up in the dictionary, Google translate says 'clear' for 'overzichtelijk').

Finished reading Byzantium by Henry Rider Haggard. Mostly a waste of my precious time, 2/5
