The format doesn't give me any trouble.  I habitually read several books 
at once, usually reading 10-20 pages of each in alternation in my hour 
or two of nightly reading time.  The only (long) things I read straight 
through are the daily newspaper, and technical papers.  When I travel 
for an overnight trip, I take three books with me.  :-)

As to the story, I'm enjoying it.  The one complaint I have is the 
schizophrenia.  Multiple personalities seems like a cheap trick for an 
author to pull.  Gives you too many options.  But you haven't overplayed it.

Currently reading: Sunny Auyang, How is Quantum Field Theory
    Possible?; Thomas Sowell, Black Rednecks and White
    Liberals; Greg Mortenson and David Relin, Three Cups of
    Tea; Tracy Kidder, House; Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere
