I'm a little embarrassed to say I have never done that experiment. So, I just did.

I have five books for testing with the same name except a digit on the end. They are identical except the title in calibre. When sent to the device, they have the same file name except for the number.

My test was to send these books to my Touch with at least a minute between them. The order I sent them was 3, 4, 5, 1, 2. The five books filled the mosaic after the disconnect, but as they have identical text for the first page, I had to look at the library in "Recent reads" order. This showed 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

That says the books were processed in alphabetical order on file name.

There needs to be another test using files in different directories. But, looking at the database, it appears that it is in path order.
