While I pretend I don't have more than one book on the go at the same time, usually I do (but not more than two at once.... or maybe three).
Right now I'm reading my way through the children's book series by Tamora Pierce (The Circle of Magic Quartet) - I'm a tenth of the way through #3 "The Fire in the Forging". I'm enjoying the development of the four young mages through the books, and the increasing complexity of the magical interplay between them.
I'm also reading #3 of Janet Evanovich's series featuring urban bounty-hunter Stephanie Plum - they're funny and hair-raising at the same time.
And actually that's it - as long as you don't count "The Listener", our weekly television guide which is also New Zealand's literary/arts/sport review magazine. I get these from my Dad, weeks after he's finished with them. Sometimes that means I miss a topical story - but mostly it means I can read the 'topical' with the benefit of a month's hindsight- quite instructive!


I can only read one book at a time (not counting scriptures and magazines). I recently read The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman (enjoyed that a lot) and am now reading Maid by Kimberly Cutter. I'd like to read Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc by Mark Twain. I want to compare Maid with it.
On my nightstand waiting to be read is a new J.A. Jance book and 3 magazines.
I just added The Postmistress to my list at my local library.

Just finished reading One Day and then started Crossed, but I'm having a hard time getting into it. I also have Night Circus that I borrowed from a friend and I really want to start it. So I'm sure within a day or two I'll be reading both.

Mudbound is coming up in my book club. Let me know what you think of it.

Our husbands are two peas in a pod! In the 15 years I've known him, I've never seen him read a book!


I usually have more than one book going although right now I am in a "can't find a good book" phase. I just finished the western "Flint" that my dad thinks is the one your library patron was looking for b/c after he described it, I wanted to read it. I haven't read a western in a LOONG time. Were you able to get a hold of that cute little old man to let him know about that? I checked out charlotte Bronte's Villette but after reading the forward I don't know if I want to read it. I don't know if I'm in the mood for what was described. I think I will catch up on a kids series that Jacob has been reading. I read the first 7 and then started to lose interest but he says I just HAVE to read the last couple that I haven't read.... so I suppose I must.
