I have a strict one-book-at-a-time rule. I know I'll be too tempted to leave a somewhat boring book unfinished if I have others to jump to.

I'm practically half air by now. Genes, man.

I've accepted that life is too short to continue reading books that I find "boring." There isn't enough time to finish all the ones I'm going to enjoy, so why waste time reading ones that I don't?

I agree, but I get bored very easily. If I were to drop a book as soon as it starts to bore me I don't think I would have finished any of the books I've read in the past year.

I do one on Audible and another on Kindle. To be fair, like 4-5 of those books were $4.95 Audible purchases that I noped out of but yeah - like 33 books in two months.
