What's On Your Nightstand ::: May '11


This may be my new mantra. : ) Another long night with a fussy boy leaves me a little wiped out today. We got through the morning with a showing of Monsters, Inc. and have made it to rest time with all of us still in one piece and the house even picked up a little.

However, in lieu of a nice newsy nightstand post, I leave you with actual pictures of my nightstand.


I've not made much of a dent in my goals from last month - I did finish The Mission of Motherhood (excellent!) and started Made to Crave (looks promising!) but was sidelined by two other books that were on my Kindle: The Penderwicks at Point Mouette by Jeanne Birdsall and Don't Make Me Come Up There by Kristen Welch.


Besides Made to Crave which I'm reading right now, the only other books I would like to START in June is Radical by David Platt. Our women's group at church is going to be reading that together this summer and from what I've heard, I'm going to want to read that one slowly. Otherwise, at this point, I'm making no promises as to what I will accomplish. However, the fact that we have eight weeks of summer schedule ahead of us makes fitting a bit more reading time promising.

  1. Love the sign!! I can empathize with the lack of sleep. I've felt like a zombie today. I don't have a Kindle (yet?), or I would sure take you up on the Penderwicks offer! Thanks anyway!

  2. Great nightstand photos! I love the box. Happy reading!

  3. I just picked up the new Penderwicks from the library today and can't wait to delve in!

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who makes it through the mornings with movie showings. =)

    I'm about halfway through Made to Crave and am really liking it. I'm only allowing myself one chapter of it a day to let it linger and sink in. I hope. We'll see.

  5. OK, I really love the basket on your nightstand!
    Books...I have 4 in my totebag for the summer of moving. The rest are all Kindle.
