I have a tendency to read multiple books, plays or stories at once. I watch several TV shows. It generally seems normal to me to bounce around from narrative to narrative. But it suddenly struck me that when I do that, my brain has to retain the circumstances of many stories at once. When I dive back into a novel, I usually take no time to acclimatize. I almost never really want to see the “What happened last week” teasers on TV. I just remember the circumstance usually.
