I do this too! A recent trick I tried is to make a monthly TBR list of at least 3 books I already have that I really want to read. I try to only read books from this list with the exception of those new releases which I want to read as soon as I get. I ended up finishing 4 books from my list last time besides others. Start with a fresh list every month. It's also easier if you focus on reading only one book at a time.
I use Calibre portable to store my books on a hard drive as well as import and export books to kindle. Books that I really want to read again can be tagged with 'read again' so I can find them if I want or starred. I try to keep the books stored on kindle to a reasonable number but I like the fact that I can switch from book to book or genre to genre according to mood.
I used to switch between 3-4 books at a time myself. But as I get older, I find it a little harder to keep track of complex story lines and numerous characters, especially when I was reading Game of Thrones, Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series and a John Scalzi novel! I now barrel through a single book and then go on to the next.
