I have a short attention span, and tend to read 2 or 3 books at one time so that I have an alternative when I get bored. Only VERY rarely is a book so good that it holds my attention. Right now I am reading Impeachable Offense By Neesa Hart (the 2nd book in political spin-off series of the Left Behind Christian fiction series) as well as The Onion Girl by Charles de Lint! Odd combination there, no? wink.gif

I have tried to read more than one book at a time and I just cannot do it. My comprehension is bad enough! Usually I read one book at a time and many magazines.

I am currently reading The Dark Highlander by Karen Marie Moning.

i have not problem reading more than one book. probably b/c i have like 3 month long gaps were i dont read them so i end up goning back in the moddle of the book and not knowing whats going on anymore. Ive been trying to read The Little Princess for like 5 years now. it kind of sad. But recently i just finished The Catcher In the Rye by JD Salinger. i wouldnt recommend it though. its not all that great. Im also reading The Oath by Frank Peretti. Its like a horror/suspense/mythical creature type book. its pretty cool cool.gif and when i have time to read i cant put it down. That one i would recommmend.

I have done that, I have read a few of the "must read" books and been disappointed.
Now I am reading "Hunter of the Light" by Risa Aratyr. A Celtic fantasy that is quite good, but you need to know your Celtic lore to keep up.

I'm currently 1/2 through Voyager by Diana Gabaldon. It's the 3rd novel in her Outlander series. I have absolutely fallen in love with her male protagonist, the Highland Scot - Jamie Fraser. heart.gif

Hi Merewyn! Glad to find another D Gabaldon fan! I have read all her books and think she is a marvelous writer. I think all of us who read her books all fall in love with Jamie! wink.gif

I am currently reading Into The Wilderness by Sara Donati. Hmmm.......I think I am in love with this author's male protagonist, Nathaniel. He reminds me so much of Jamie!

when i'm not reading text books, i'm reading Free Land by Rose Wilder Lane (Laura Ingels Wilder's daughter) or the Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony by Robert Calasso- but that's for a class so it really doesn't count.

WizardofOwls, I'm with ya dude! I have read 4 books at one time...confused the heck outta me. Nowadays, I've slowed down. I've decided I'll read one at a time if it excites me enough and if not, then I'll read none at all.

I figure I'll get more finished that way! smile.gif

The Tommyknockers by Stephen King.

I could never ever get into that book. I got to the part where she ... oh .. better not say tongue.gif I just found it really really difficult to concentrate on. One day I'll get round to reading it all I suppose ... Meanwwhile I've read .. Mia Dolan's "The Gift", "The Little Prisoner" by Jane Elliott and Sara Payne's "A Mothers Story". I have also read "The Altar Boy", "Our Kid" and the story of a child whose mother had Munchausen By Proxy. Oh and the story of a teacher who took on a violent 5 year old child in her class. Excellent.

All thought provoking books which made me feel glad I had a normal childhood.

I've read all three on the recommendation that they were Harry Potter-esque---books written for children but enjoyable for adults as well.  I thought they were fun reads, nothing spectacular.  I've been meaning to check out other works by Colfer to see what his other stuff looks like.  And I will say that I haven't been able to look at the word leprechaun the same.  wink.gif  At any rate, for those that haven't read/heard of them they are about this boy, Artemis Fowl who is a criminal genius.  He has these intricate plots about how he can win back his family fortune and such.

[FONT=Geneva]Greetings from Utah!

I have to say I felt the same way after reading the first Artemis Fowl book but I reeeally enjoyed the second and third books. I am anxiously awaiting the fourth. It will be out in June. Then again I'm a sucker for children's literature. Probably because it's such a break from what I 'have' to read every day.

As far as Colfer's other books go, I thought 'The Supernaturalist' was interesting but not my favorite book. I did like 'Benny and Omar'.

Has anyone read the Squire's Tale series by Gerald Morris? It's a fairly new children's series that satires King Arthur times. Very funny.

I'm reading Tonino Benacquista "Somebody else".
Who did not want to become somebody else ? The man you have always dreamt to become ? The man that has never lost his dreams and desires...
One night, in a bar, two men swear to meet again in 3 years...3 years to become this man.
But it's a dangerous game, and maybe they'll find themselves in this quest.

A very good book with suspense and humour ! smile.gif

I am still reading, Dawn on the Distant Shore by Sara Donati. Wonderful book, but I have been slow reading this because I am really behind in my magazine subscriptions that I am trying to get through. Then to top it off, a friend of mine came over and brought me over some of her magazines for me to read! rolleyes.gif

I'm reading Dawn on a Distant Shore. It has been slow reading for me too because of too many things going on in my life. Plus I got my new copies of The Highlander and Scottish Life Magazines.
