    I just started Prince of Foxes by Samuel Shellabarger last night. Before that I read One is One by Barbara Leonie Picard, before that I read Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver by E.L. Conigsburg, and before that I read Ivanhoe (by Sir Walter Scott LOL). Not sure what will be next after Prince of Foxes though...

    Downstairs- I just started Delia's Crossing by V.C. Andrews and upstairs by my bed I am about halfway through Brother Odd by Dean Koontz. I usually have half read books everywhere, including in the car, just in case I ever find time to read for a bit.

    I have a large stack of books on my shelf in my room waiting for me to finish these 2 and start on them. I just don't find as much time to read since discovering the chicken world!

    Just started reading aloud to the younger set of kidlets (7&9) the Chronicals of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. I am also reading Let it Rot! by Stu Campbell and The Homesteade's Handbook to Raising Small Livestock by Jerome D. Belanger. I love reading and any fiction I start doesn't last too long- maybe 72 hours for a big book. Needless to say, I can't always afford that much time for reading. [​IMG]
    How do you have more than one book going and remember what each is about:confused: Too much ADD hanging on, can't focus that well!

    I don't have too much trouble remembering what each of the current ones are about, its trying to remember what the stories were in all the ones I've read in the past thats hard for me. I envy people that can remember most of the plots to books they have read! There are very few I can remember, unless they were a favorite author...like Kellerman, Koontz, King.
