I always find it incredibly interesting to see what other folks are reading and what books are on their nightstand, don’t you? As a self proclaimed book-a-holic I find that my stash rotates quite frequently and there are always a variety of books in various stages of completion. I am not a one book at a time woman. I usually have several going at the same time because I am not always in the mood to read the same type of book. Maybe that is just me. There is no right or wrong answer here – it is just a personal preference.
Last year I fell woefully behind on my reading goal. I suspect it was the two moves and the traveling and the packing and the unpacking and the traveling that kind of got in the way. I usually try to read a lot when I travel but I think last year I just was a bit overwhelmed with life and did not read as much as I wanted to. But this year has started off with a bang when it comes to reading and I currently have 11 books completed and it is only early February so I am well on my way to my goal of reading 100 books during the year.
So what is on my nightstand now? My stack is actually on the floor next to my bed since I am currently staying with family in Ohio. Here you go:
My travel Bible and devotional journal One Year With Jesus.
Oolong Dead by Laura Childs —one of her Tea Shop Mystery series that I absolutely love because it is all about tea and has recipes and fun ideas scattered throughout the mystery.
A Separate Peace by John Knowles –a book about a boys’ boarding school in the early part of WWII. I have not gotten much of it read yet but it is one of those that I thought would be a good read and so far it is.
Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequist –she has been a speaker at the Women of Faith events and I love her style and her writing is so engaging. This book is a series of essays centering around recipes and life sharing with others around the table. I am finding it to be a wonderful book and Chris gave me the perfect Christmas gift.
Finally my ever present Kindle which is LOADED with books yet to read. The one that I have started on my Kindle is All the Lasting Things by David Hopson and I have just barely started it so it is too early to say what I think of it.
