You guys don't actually keep rules for how much you can read at once, do you? That's very funny.

I'm working through five presently, I'll do a burst at a time of each. I've always done at least five books at a time, is that uncommon? What are your thoughts on this approach, /lit/?
Here's my current reading list if that helps
A Game of Thrones - never read GRRM so I thought I'd give it a shot with the show being over. Entertaining so far.
Meditations, Aurelius - reread.
The Haunting, Shirley Jackson - first of her work I've read. There's a feeling of dread that's pervasive and unlike most in-your-face horror. Genuinely loveable characters add to the spooky, like reading an old English ghost story.
When we were orphans, Ishiguro - loved Never Let Me Go. This is great so far.
Blindsight, Watts - dark, creepy, hopeless, really creative scifi. Well-written and tackles some awfully complex concepts for what the premise is.
