My books aren't on my nightstand, they're all over my house. Next to each one I'll tell you where it is as well as how far I'm into it.
New this month ...
- Midnight's Children (Salman Rushdie) - currently it's in my car but it's actually my "carry it wherever I go" book - the writing is different than anything I've read before ... it really is amazing but requires lots of concentration so it's been slow going thus far
- The Book That Changed My Life - this compilation of 71 essays is next to me on my desk - last night, in the midst of PMS misery (ugh), I just couldn't get into the Rushdie book so I picked up this one instead - I read all but the last 10 pages in one sitting! - check back tomorrow for my review
- The Zookeeper's Wife (Diane Ackerman) - currently in my car - I just finished this book and it was fantastic! (here's my review) - I'm deciding whether to post it on PaperbackSwap or lend it to an IRL friend ...
- Coming Unglued (Rebeca Sietz) - this is on my desk at work and I've barely started it - I got it from the publisher who told me it's about life, girlfriends, scrapbooking, and keeping it all together - sounds like fun to me!
- Imagining Argentina (Lawrence Thornton) - on a shelf near my front door waiting for someone to request it through PBS (I'm ReadingAddict there, in case you want to request it from me!) - I posted my review a few days ago but I'll tell you again that this is a FABULOUS book - go read it right now!!!
- Why the Wind Blows (Matthys Levy) - I keep this on at work in case I forget book #1 - so far it seems disjointed, but I'm hoping that things will come together if I keep reading
- Some Experiences of an Irish RM (E. Somerville) - I keep this one in the bathroom - sometime I even read it while brushing my teeth. -it's quite enjoyable but easy to put down as well
- Delta of Venus (Anias Nin) - This is near my bed. It deserves a post all of it's own ... it's the first erotica I've ever read (and it's for the 1% Well Read Challenge too!). Oh my, oh my, oh my ... you'll just have to wait for my review for more details. I only read this one occasionally - it's not an "every day" book! (This is basically what I wrote about this book last month ... I haven't even thought about reading it since then.)
- 12,000 Miles In the Nick of Time (Mark & Rae Jacobson) - this one is stashed in a drawer near my bed ... I haven't touched it in over a month
