I was having a conversation with a fellow employee the other day and we were talking about how many books we have read at one time. It dawned on me that at that moment I had 5 books going at once. One on my nightstand, one by the bathtub, one on my desk at work, one I read on lunch at work and one non-fiction that I have been reading at various points of the day over the weekend.
I also hate to admit there is a 6th book that I had read over the weekend while sitting outside in the sunshine. I think that is the most I have ever had going at once. Thankfully they are all very different so I am not getting to confused, but maybe I should finish a couple before I start another one.
What is the most number of books you have had going at once?
An Unholy Communion - Donna Fletcher Crow - #3 in the Monastary Mysteries - As voices are lifted on Ascension morning, Felicity's worship is turned to horror when a body lands at her feet. The police think it is suicide, but Felicity and her fiance' Father Anthony know otherwise and set out to solve the mystery.
Angelguard - Ian Acheson - Not all the spirits are good. A corrupt business man and the evil spirits he has sold his soul to are trying to bring the G8 nations to their knees. Jack and his angelguard are all that stand between thema and sucess.
Once Upon a Prince - Rachel Hauck - A modern day fairy tale. Susanna is expecting to be engaged, not broken up with. Prince Nathaniel is not expecting to find love under a tree on St. Simon's Island. But it happens, but their two different lives will not allow them to love each other.
Chasing Francis - Ian Morgan Cron - Pastor Chase loses his faith and the church elders encourage him to go away - far away. He ends up in Italy following in Fancis of Assisi's footsteps.
Katie's Choice - Amy Lillard - A Clover Ridge Novel #2 - When Samuel turns his back on the church and Katie, she decides to dedicate her life to God and the children at the small community school. Zane learns a lot about the Amish when he is sent to live among them for a news story. The most intriguing thing he finds is the young school teacher.
Sweet Dreams - Carla Stewart - Dusty Fairchild didn't want to go to finishing school, she wanted to go to college. She didn't want to learn about party planning and poise. She wants independence and adventure. The only upside it her best friend Paisley, that is until they both fall for the same man.
