What's on my Nightstand

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Before I really get into this post I want to apologize for it's unpolished look. I am writing this post on my iPhone because I am visiting my Mother in Florida and she still has dialup which for the most part makes me want to shoot myself so I avoid using her computer as much as I can to that end I am left with a scruffy looking blog post or two. All that being said, let's get on with it.
I really do love this blog carnival put together by www.5minutesforbooks.com I enjoy the opportunity to share everything I am currently reading and the things I have finished over the last month.

Finished this month:
Always Looking Up by Michael J. Fox -
I enjoyed this one as much if not more than his first book.

My Story: A Photographic Essay of Life with Multiple Sclerosis by Amelia Davis -
Bottom line on this one is if you have MS or are close to someone who does, read it, if not, don't.

Dairy Queen by Carherine Murdock -
A great young adult novel nothing at all to do with the ice cream shop.

Alternadad by Neal Pollack -
I really liked this the writing is funny and honest. I am trying to get my husband to read it but so far no luck.

Everything Twitter by Monica Jones and Steve Soho -
Good info on how to amass followers but seems easily dated in regular book format.



Currently Reading:


Sorry I took these pictures with my iPhone. These are the two books I brought with me to Florida.

The Adventures of Snip in Oregon by Betty S. Moir -
So far this seems like a very well intentioed book but it much like this blog post it needs more polishing.

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley -
This one is a page turner, I simply couldn't leave it in NOLA to finish later.


A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clark -
I am liking this one but it is more of a comedy set in Paris than an actually travelogue, so far.

Touch and Go by Studs Terkel -
This is the first book I have read by Terkel which I guess is strange since this is his memoir but I am glad I finally picked something up by him. News flash! This guy can write.


I can't even begin to tell you what I plan to read in the coming month. When I get back home on Monday I will peruse the bookshelf and see what looks good.

4 your two cents:

Those look like great nightstand selections!

FYI-- the link you left on the Mr. Linky on 5M4B has all caps HTML at the end and isn't working. Can you go and fix it there with lower case html so people can be sure to find you? Thanks!!

I've seen Dairy Queen around and considered reading it... I'll have to check out your review.

Also, Sweetness... is on my TBR and I can't wait to get to it. (Hope the great book makes living with dial-up a little more bearable.)

Dial up would kill me too!

Oh, I think I'm going to have to read The Sweetness . . . . I keep hearing about it. How's it going to make it's way into my pile??

Boy, you read all kinds of stuff. I've never heard of these books. Maybe the stuff I'm reading is too conventional.
