What’s on Your Nightstand?

This is my first time participating in this little activity but it sounds fun.

I’m not organized enough to have a picture ready this time but I’ll remember it for the future.

I’m currently reading A is for Alibi and Water For Elephants at home. Online I have been slowly reading 1984. As two of these are library books I hope to have them finished within the next week so they can be returned.

For the coming month:

  • The Lake House by James Patterson
  • B is for Burglar by Sue Grafton
  • Harry Potter and  the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling
  • Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes

While I’m sure I can read more than that in one month, there is a holiday and I may get distracted.

This past month I read 24 pieces of work, including short stories, one poem, and multiple Shakespeare plays. Having the Fall Read-A-Thon helped immensely. Of those, my favorites were Wicked, Two For the Dough, and Journals. Most of my reviews have been posted here and can be accessed easily through the reading list link.

The two books in progress now, as stated before, I’m reading currently because they are library books but also ones I was very intrigued to start. I’ve never read any of the Alphabet Series and couldn’t resist another challenge. Pretty much all the books I have on my shelves I have probably bought myself. Occasionally I get books as gifts but not as of recent. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a borrowed book from my best friend. I have reserved it specifically as at home reading because the book is so large I don’t want to carry it around with me in my purse. I usually carry a couple small books around with me wherever I go.

I find I am more productive in my reading when I have more books going at once because I can rest on one subject and go another world. When I read one book, I seem to read slower. With multiple books I choose different genres or authors to give me variety.

See you next month.
