Bedside reading

My husband thinks it is strange that I have so many books on my bedside table, and that I am reading them all. I can’t explain it, I need to be in the mood for a certain book. And lately when I crawl into bed at night, all I am in the mood for is a little solitaire on my iPad. About 3 games and I am done for, can’t keep my eyes open.

Back to the books. I have to confess, I like the look of the stack. It makes me feel good to see many books there. It is like having a buffet with many choices. Or a store with so many things I want to buy. (That could be food or clothes, either way, doesn’t matter.)

So for my current selection:

  1. The Social Animal – David Brooks
  2. The 3rd Alternative – Stephen R. Covey
  3. Island of the Sequined Love Nun – Christopher Moore
  4. French Kids Eat Everything – Karen Le Billon
  5. 52 ways to wreck your retirement…and how to rescue it – Tina Di Vito
  6. Money-Smart Kids – Gail Vaz-Oxlade
  7. CABO – Moon handbooks
  8. Fifty Shades of Grey – E.L. James

It is really hard to say which one I like best.

#4 and #6 are for the kids, and even though #6 is slim it has been in the pile since January. Something about reading a pile of common sense that I should be smart enough to apply, but have not, kind of bums me out.

Christopher Moore writes such unexpected stories, that are sexy in a strange way, they just have to be read.

50 shades of grey has been talked about by so many women and my husband gave it to me for Mother’s Day, (wink, wink). Evidently I am right at the point where it gets good. Chapter 8. Seems like a long way in to get the good stuff going. But evidently I am going to love it.

What the picture doesn’t show are the library books that float in and out. Added to the table right now are 2 cookbooks. One for Mexico and for Spanish tapas. As well, 2 magazines and 2 new titles from the “just arrived” rack as you walk into our library. And I grabbed 3 magazines from the Air Canada lounge last week that I didn’t get time to read on the short-haul in and out of Calgary.

Instead of starting another knitting project, I should get to some reading.

    I love having a stack because I get antsy if I dont have anything lined up. I go back and forth between non fiction books too, but I have to take fiction one at a time. Great list!
