I read. A lot. And then I make lists of books I want to read. A lot. And I read fiction faster than non-fiction. I have a bookshelf by my bed and it's piled high with books I need to read, books I've read, and books I started reading and am slowly going back and forth with.
I try real hard to review the books I have read, but I forget and don't always do it, most of the time. I find other things to do. I need to get better at that.
I also belong to an online bookshelf called Shelfari. It's my virtual bookshelf where I can list all my favorites, my to-d0's that I own, my reads in general, and my wishlist. My wishlist is HUGE and ever-growing. And I usually have my Amazon cart stocked high and go back to edit it before I actually buy.
Fortunantly, I am married to a reader and we've bred readers. Or sometimes that is unfortunant when you look at the lack of space we have for our books and BIG NEED for the shelves to fill them. It's kind of a half-empty/half-full glass kind of thing.
I did happen to read and review a book I've read fairly recently, called The Shack, by William P. Young. You can find that here.
Other than that, my books read and unread, are Ted Dekker's Thr3e, House, and Saint; C.S. Lewis's The ScrewTape Letters; And the non-fic right now are, Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto, and a family history tale called Chickasaw:A Mississippi Scout For The Union,
by Levi Naron.
I've got a lot to read too, for the benefit of my children, including homeschool curriculum. I have read and started to read their History texts and I am looking at some Phonics materials. Those are always fun because sometimes, I am learning new things right there with them and we're making it a fun experience learning them together! :)
So what about you? What's on Your Nightstand?
