Picking up another book when already reading one is something that I have now fully embraced. But about 6 or 7 years ago I would never have dreamed of doing such a thing. At that time I would never have DNF'd a book either.
Now I have learned to recognize the signs of my disinterest, (basically dragging my feet to get back to a book), early on and I usually turn to a short story or novella to perk me back up. Sometimes, I'll just turn to a different book altogether. It's nice to know that other people do this or something similar also.

I thought I was one of the few that *didn't* read several books concurrently, lol. I figure, whatever works. I personally lack the multi-tasking ability to "get into" more than 1 fiction and 1 non-fiction at a time (audio excepted); when I try it, I start to feel disconnected from all of them. I love the idea of it though; I have so many moments when I look over my books and think "I want to read all of them, right now!". :)

You had me with this book until the part about the singer... then you had me again with the phrenology. I might have to see if my library has this one, and i'll skip the singer bit (at least the graphic part of it).
