parallel readings

Things (books, papers) I am trying to read in parallel:

David Eggers: AHWOSG
John Arden: Serjeant Musgrave’s Dance
Anthony Fox: Language Reconstruction
Teach Yourself Cybernetics
Kolmogorov and Fomin: Functional Analysis
Pierre Bremaud: Mathematical Principles of Signal Processing
M. Belkin and P. Niyogi: Laplacian Eigenmaps for Dimensionality Reduction and Data Representation
A. Hekstra and F. Willems: Dependence Balance Bounds for Single-Output Two-Way Channels
R. Ahlswede and G. Dueck: Identification via Channels
W. Yu: Uplink-Downlink Duality via Minimax Duality
G. Kramer, M. Gastpar, and P. Gupta: Cooperative Strategies and Capacity Theorems for Relay Networks
R. Cruz: A Calculus for Network Delay, Part I

The question is: are things being added to the list faster than the completion time of any one item? It’s like downloading too many files at once — maybe sending in the jobs serially would have been a better strategy.

I figure my brain has parallel channels, so the overall capacity increases as I diversify my reading. If the crosstalk is almost orthogonal, I should be able to process all this stuff, right?
