I love looking at the "nightstand" posts that bloggers put up once a month. Mine is not terribly impressive this month. Janaury (I'm now noticing) is usually a reading rut for me. It should be a great month for reading! I'm inside a lot because of the weather, I've usually got a stack of new books to read from Christmas and birthday ... however, invariably I find myself turning to books that I have read before. Maybe it's because of the letdown after the holidays and I need something familiar after the frenzy? Who knows. :)
Anyway. Here are a few of the books that I'm PUTTING on my nightstand to read in the next few weeks. We'll just have to see what happens.
- Rebecca's Reward by Lauraine Snelling. I've been reading these historical fiction books set in North Dakota since the beginning of her Red River series. I'm finding I'm not as hooked with this book, though, as with some of the others.
- Inkspell by Cornelia Funke. I loved the first book and am plunging into the second one. Has anyone seen the movie for Inkheart that is in the theatre now? I have heard one good review so far. Hoping for a date night with my husband to see that before it makes its way to our Netflix queue. :)
- The Journey that Saved Curious George: The True Wartime Escape of Margret & H.A. Rey by Louise Borden. I admit to a love of all things H.A. Rey as evidenced by a children's classics post. This book is at my local library and I'm going to check it out this week and add it to my nightstand.
- Sabbath Keeping by Lynne Baab. A book that I received for Christmas and I am eager to start.
And, two others that I have read before, but feel that I need to pull out for the good reminders that are in there...
