This month I’m join 5 Minutes for Books to share what’s on my nightstand…
My “nightstand” current reads don’t include any physical books right now (well, except for my Bible, of course!) they are all on my phone… in the form of an audiobook or ebook.
Since I always have an audiobook in my “current reads” I’m now onto Emma by Jane Austen. This is the last Austen book for me to “read”… I won’t say that without the quotes because my sister reads this blog and she’s adamant about people not saying they READ a book if they only listened to it 😉 So far my favorite Austen book is Persuasion, but many have said they like Emma best. We shall see if Persuasion can be topped. I’m not sure it will happen, because to get to Persuasion, it would have to go through P&P and S&S and that just seems crazy. 😉 ((audiobook))
I’m very close to finishing Grace for the Good Girl by Emily P Freeman. I am hoping to finish it before I leave for the Relevant conference (a Christian blogging Conference) where I get to MEET the author IN PERSON!!! I’ve already given this book 5 stars! I will give my full report of the book when I finish… but I’ll just say I gave it 5 stars after reading the first chapter! ((ebook))
Speaking of blogging… I’m also working my way through the book 31 Days to Finding your Blogging Mojo by Bryan Allain. Funny guy, funny book, good info. After this book and Relevant I hope you’ll be able to see a difference on my blog. ((ebook))
And so you know that I DO actually read REAL tangible books, the next book on my nightstand is War and Peace… just kidding! 😉 (Although I’d love to tackle that one someday!) My next book is Velma Still Cooks In Leeway by Vinita Hampton Wright. Which also happens to be our November book club selection! If you’re local I hope you can make it to the discussion!
And if… by chance… I finish all these books next I’ll go back to working on The Lamplighter. I’m reviewing for Lamplighter Publishing. I started this book while on vacation a little over a month ago… then we got word our house had an offer… then we had to find a house to buy… and pack… and then we moved… and now… it is today, and I still haven’t returned to this awesome book! (I sorta want to go hide in the backyard under the beautiful October blue sky and stay there until I finish this one! BUT… I know it’s one of those that if I start it again I won’t want to do anything but keep reading! )
My goal in Janurary was to read 30 books this year. Now, since I’ve upgraded to a new phone and am able listen to audiobooks as well, I’ve passed that goal by two! Not sure how many I’ll reach by December 31st but it’s pretty awesome to see myself on the other side of 30… (EEEK! Since next year I will be on the other side of 30! Which is actually 28, right?Right?!… Bueller?… Bueller?….)
