What's on My Nightstand - August
Here is what is currently on my nightstand from the bottom up:
Holy Bible - I'm still working my way through the Bible. My goal is to read the entire book within a year. Currently I am in 1 Corinthians (morning reading) and Psalms (nighttime reading).
The green velor notebook. This isn't a book I'm reading, it's my "Book of Books" and as such generally is located on my nightstand with the books I am reading.
Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis. Yes, yes, I know. I was reading this last month... I'm still working my way through it. Four chapters left.
Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser. I know very little about this book, though I have read that it was a very controversial book when written. So much so it took a while for Dreiser to find a publisher willing to print it. I may not finish this book, I might return it to the library as fast as I can, but I won't know until I get a chance to look at it closer. I just stumbled upon it while browsing. We shall see...
The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne. This has been on my "To Read" list for a long time. I'm finally going to pick it up and I can hardly wait!
The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Graham. I wasn't planning to start this right now, the other night I found myself in between books -- finished with what I had been reading and waiting for my next book requests to arrive at the library.
The Fairy's Mistake by Gale Carson Levine. This is a very short story written by the author of Ella Enchanted. I've not read the latter, but have seen the movie. It was through a friend that I heard about this book and have added it to my reading list. Because it is so short you should expect a review in the next few days.
And that's it for this time. What's on your nightstand?
