It’s that time again … time for 5 Minutes for Books’s “What’s on Your Nightstand?”
As you know, I don’t keep books on my nightstand (in part because I don’t have one) but rather in odd places throughout my house. Here’s run down of what I’m reading and where it can be found:
*** In my bag, wherever I go ***
*** On my desk at work ***
*** In my car ***
The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield (audio) – I love this, but three (!!!) of the thirteen cassettes don’t work! So I’ve also had to borrow the actual book and read the sections that are inaudible on the cassettes.
*** In my bathroom ***
The Ark, the Reed, and the Fire Cloud, by Jenny Cote – This is such a long book for me to read to
kiddo (and we’ve been working on it for so many months now) that I’m now taking every opportunity to squeeze in a chapter. I’ve been reading it to him while he’s in the shower, getting his pjs on, and brushing his teeth each night.
*** In my bed ***
the 11th book in my Wheel of Time series reread/relisten. Book 12, the final book, is coming out in Nov. ’09 and I can’t wait!
*** Staring at me accusingly from the end table ***
Island, by Aldous Huxley – I’m so fed up with this book that I’ve put it aside indefinitely. I do want to finish it though, if only to see if there is ANY redeeming quality about it.
So ... what's on YOUR nightstand?
