What's On My Nightstand: October

As you will soon see in my October Month In Review post (appearing Friday, October 30) I have spent most of the month of October reading books that related to the Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge. This meant that half of the books I listed on my September Nightstand List never made it off my nightstand.
Thus continued into the month of November will be:

Jayber Crow by Wendall Barry (I'm reading this for the November 4th meeting of my book club.)

Rainbow Valley by L. M. Montgomery (I'm trying to decide if it is a comedy or a tragedy that this book has now sat on my nightstand for three months...)

New books to be read in the month of November include:

The Two Mrs. Abbotts by D. E. Stevenson (Third in the Miss Buncle series, you can read my reviews of the first two: Miss Buncle's Book and Miss Buncle Married by clicking on the links.)

The Black-Print by Malik Green (This is the first book I have received via a publisher/author to read and review!)

Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie (The next in my personal Agatha Christie reading challenge. I have set the goal to read all her mysteries, by order of publication, which works out to about one mystery a month every year for the next several years.)

As for the other books... I'm sure as time allows there will be additional books added to this list. If one thing is certain it is the fact that my nightstand list is always growing, always changing and always full of surprises. So please come back frequently during the next month to see what I've been reading and if it sounds like something you might enjoy reading yourself.
Meanwhile, what have you been reading? Leave me a comment and let me know. Or head on over to 5MinutesForBooks to leave a link to your own What's On Your Nightstand post.

That's a good looking list. I'm not familiar with 'Rainbow Valley.' I'm curious now!

Jayber Crow I've read. I'll bet your book club discussion will be interesting.

Wow--I didn't realize that Agatha Christie was THAT prolific!! That's amazing.

Aren't review titles COOL!? Congrats on your first and I look forward to hearing what you think of it!

And yay for getting around to Rainbow Valley.

In the meantime, I picked up the next two B-T books at the library the other day and I hope to have another post up soon.

Oh what a cool Agatha Christie challenge-- I went through a mystery kick some years ago, and I really enjoyed hers!

Rainbow Valley I also have yet have not read. :) Ah well. Looks like I need to read some Agatha Christie. My grandmother and aunt have read all of her books.
