    You were required to read two books at the same time

    Lot means fate or one's portion in life assigned by fate - in thic case an obligation.

    At once means at the same time, as opposed to meaning immediately.

    It sounds a little like grammatical casserole to me.

    It could mean "It was a lot to read 2 books at once"

    Or... "It was my luck to read 2 books at once".

    I'm really just guessing at trying to decipher it.

    Try getting whoever said it to word it differently, that might help you understand better .-.
