Reading more than one book at a time

I've been trying to read three books at a time and it's not working too well.

I don't do this very often, but when I'm impatient to start something I have been looking forward to, I just think I'll pick it up and read one chapter. That's not really a good thing because then if I'm really loving it I forget to stop at one chapter. When I go back to my original book I have to backtrack a bit to figure out what's going on. I'm an idiot.

Here's the three books:

Into the Night (Brockmann) - audio book I'm listening to in the car. I like some parts and hate other parts (Sam is a JERK and a lousy husband) ::sigh::
Carved in Stone (Taylor) - shapeshifter paranormal about gargoyles (enjoying it very much)
Passion (Valdez) - whooheee, I'm loving it. Boy, I'm sure learning some new vocabulary! Never heard some of these terms before. Where have I been?

I've decided to put down Passion until I finish Carved in Stone since I'm further along with CIS and save Passion for 'dessert.' But I think it might kill me.

Last night I started watching the movie Loves Enduring Promise on DVD. It's a continuation of Love Comes Softly which I enjoyed very much. LEP is not as good though. While the h/h are very attractive, their acting skills are a bit stiff. But it's nice story so I'm going to finish it.

That's all for now.

I don't read more than one book at a time very often, usually this happens when I'm bored with one and start to move on to another.

Loved Carved in Stone and Passion, two of my favorites this year. Enjoy and let us know what you think.

You can put it down???? But then as you say, it is dessert. A very rich meal indeed :)
I'm with Tara. Passion and CIS are two excellent books and I loved them both

I can't read more than one book at a time because if I start to read another book then I will never go back to the other. Don't know why.

Also, thanks for mentioning the movie Loves Enduring Promise! I had no clue there was a sequel and now I just have to find a copy!

I finished Carved in Stone and really enjoyed it. Will write later about it. I've not had much time for reading or blogging since most of my time is spent getting ready for my daughter's graduation party tomorrow. I'm finishing up watching Loves Enduring Promise tonight.

Cindy - I hope you can find LEP. I got mine from blockbuster online and I love this service. $9.99/ month, 3 movies at a time and no time limit, no mailing costs.
