I don't think I have ever met anyone with a JD/MA English, so it is hard for me to comment specifically about the combination. However, I do know a few people with MAs in English, and I am getting a JD, so by combining those sources of data I think I can confidently say that this would involve an astronomical amount of reading. Like, take the amount of reading you are thinking would be absurd and double it.
Also, I think switching from legal analysis to literary criticism would make me lose my mind. The logic of the two is so different that it seems like it would be challenging to develop both at the same time.
