One book at a time? Or more than one? If more, are they different types/genres? Or similar? (We’re talking recreational reading, here — books for work or school don’t really count since they’re not optional.)
I almost always have more than one book going at a time. Usually there are a couple on my bedside table, and depending on whether there is an impending book club deadline or not, I might focus on one or the other. Frequently I also have a book in the bathroom, something that works well for reading just a little at a time, with not a lot of continuity. I like to listen to a book on CD while commuting too.
I seldom will have two of the same genre - say two mystery novels - going at the same time. More likely it'll be a fiction and a nonfiction - or maybe two dissimilar book club picks.
