I can totally relate. If it's something that I instantly click with I can get lost a book very easily.

Something I've never been able to do though is just read one book at a time. At any given moment I have at least 4 books stacked up on my desk or by my bed. Right now I've actually got 6 going. Most of the plot details and facts will come back to me a few paragraphs in, but occasionally I just forget about a book completely and end up taking it off my shelf months later with a bookmark still in it.
