Of late, I have started reading several books simultaneously, which does not mean I have a book on my right hand and another on my left. It just means I pick up a book, read a few chapters, and then I pick another and read a few chapters / pages from that and so on. And why would I do that? It saves time.

Certain books like thrillers or chicklits can be read in one sitting but there are books like the ones on health or parenting; they demand slow reading. Then there are travel books which can be read chapter-wise. There are some heavy duty books, about complexities of life, which you need to read after breaks. There are some big books like the one I read recently, Cuckold by Kiran Nagarkar; they deserve some leisurely time and attention.
So, if you love reading, you can easily bunch up different genres and make the most of your time. Since I am always short of time, so I thought of this ingenious way to read more books in the available time. It is not that difficult really. If you read 2 books from the same genre, it will be tricky. I am reading a parenting book, a health-related book, a non-fiction on Afghanistan, a book on English language and a Fiction. Simultaneously.
