What's on Your Nightstand--October

What's On Your Nightstand? is hosted once a month by 5 Minutes for Books. It happens on the fourth Tuesday of every month. It's a great chance to let others know what you like to read, and to find new bloggers with the same taste in books as you have. I'm a couple of days late in getting my post up, but better late than never, I suppose.

October was really good for me in regards to meeting my reading goals. I got everything read on my nightstand this past month with one exception--A Flickering Light by Jane Kirkpatrick. It needed to be returned to the library before I got a chance to read it. :o(

This next month, here's what I'm aiming to read:

White Picket Fences by Susan Meissner
The Swiss Courier by Tricia Goyer
Thirsty by Tracey Bateman
Abide with Me by Delia Parr

I'm pretty positive that I'll get all four of these read, plus a few others. I'm not setting too large a goal because most of November is going to be spent doing a couple of things on the house (painting, chair rail in the living room, etc.) plus having the whole family over for Thanksgiving, so there won't be quite as much spare time for reading....I'll be too busy!


  1. I started Thirsty, but I didn't get very far. It was actually a pretty good story, but I put it aside for other deadlines, I think.

    I'd love to know what you think.

  2. Nice list! I wish I was so organized. I tend to grab whatever interests me at the moment... or what was on sale.. or what was featured on someone's blog... an author sent me it... It all seems so accidental.

    Sometimes I'll read a book I really like and so I go buy a bunch by the same author or all the others in that series.


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
