What’s On My Nightstand


I can’t seriously believe it is already time again for this meme! And I’m always confused…is this for February or March?  Either way, here’s my pile of books.


On top is the Pioneer Woman’s Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, the story of how she met and married her rancher husband.  I faithfully followed this tale when she chronicled it on her blog, but couldn’t resist getting it in book form as well.  It’s a story for the ages.  ;)

I have read all the books by Sarah Addison Allen and enjoyed them so much that I sought out more authors in this “magic realism” genre.  Alice Hoffman is quite prolific and my library had several of her books so I picked up a few on our last trip.

I also had a little Amazon gift card money in my account and used it to get a couple of books.  I had seen Southern Plate a while back while browsing Barnes and Nobles and then again in many other places and finally took the hint and bought it.  I won a ticket to Heart of the Matter’s online homeschool conference but every time I tried to log on my computer crashed.  While waiting the two weeks for the mp3s of the conference to be released, I picked up a cute title by one of the speakers, If I’m Diapering a Watermelon, Then Where’d I Leave the Baby?  The subtitle is Help for the Highly Distractible Mom.  Uh, yeah, that is sooooo me.

Very soon the library book sale season will begin in my area.  I am so looking forward to finding many more (cheap) books for my nightstand.  Now I just have to find the time to read them.
