Wow, I cannot believe it has been a month already since we last met for this carnival! 5 Minutes for Books hosts several carnivals for readers like myself and I love participating in them. This time, we get to show what is on our nightstand!
Well, I'll tell 'ya, besides being a fun meme that lets us get to know each other a little more, this is also quite the motivator to get me to clean off my nightstand lol. ;) Here is what is currently residing there.
Okay, we have Jane Eyre, which I am reading for another 5 Minutes for Books carnival. It's quite an old copy I have had since high school! Next is the 7th book in the Princess Diaries series. Yep, I know, they are books for "tweens", but it really is a cute series and I have enjoyed reading them a lot. Next is Twilight, the first in a series that I saw reviewed at (of course) 5 Minutes for Books. I like books in a series, and although the subject matter of this one isn't quite my cup of tea, I'm going to give it a try. Finally there is my favorite crockpot cookbook (see this post for explanation) and another cookbook I checked out from the library.
Don't look to the left of the book pile (and to the right either, even though it's not pictured) as you will see the huge piles of magazines awaiting my perusal. I've been doing so much book reading, I have neglected my periodical pursuits. ;) I don't actually buy or subscribe to that many mags, I got a lot of them free from the homeschool convention I went to and my mom and I also exchange mags.
