What’s on Your Nightstand?

What's On Your Nightstand

Joining in with 5 Minutes for Books for their monthly What’s on Your Nightstand? post.  This is my first time doing this post and I think it is a great idea to get ideas for books to add to my never ending to-read list read.  It is also a good way for me to keep track of books I really enjoyed (or enjoyed again, judging by this month).  I usually have quite a few books going at once! I usually read a few chapters before bed, or any other time I get a chance. Here’s what is currently tottering on my nightstand:

Prince Caspian — I’m reading The Chronicles of Narnia to see which books to read to my 4 year old. I’m reading in order of publication this time because I thought that way would be more interesting to him. I like that way better! So far I’ve read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (which I am now reading to him) and I just started Prince Caspian again.

Silent Grief — I’m supposed to be re-reading this book to review it. So far, I’m not doing so well at re-reading!

The Power of a Praying Wife — I’m participating in an online bible study with this one. Feel free to join in!

Searching for God Knows What — rereading to review for BookSneeze

The Shack — rereading because I needed some fiction and didn’t have any library books at home!

Wow… looks like I need to read some books I haven’t read before!  I have a whole list of those waiting too… come back next month to see! 🙂  (And, for my usual blog readers… I know I posted about all of these books a few weeks ago… haven’t finished most of them yet but I promise I’ll have different books up next month!) 🙂

Books I finished this month:

Redeeming Love — reread… and highly recommend! This is one of my favorites!

Feel free to tell me what you are reading or to join in!

  1. I think I may have to join in on your ‘Praying Wife’ study. I have the book and have read bits and pieces, but never the whole way through. I’m going to go check it out now.

    Great post!


  2. If you need any suggestions, why don’t you take a squiz at my side bar … 🙂

    I seldom take time to read, but the last book that touched my heart was “The Road”. I heard the movie is coming out soon. Anxious to see if it is true to the book.


  4. I LOVE the Narnia books. Really truly love them. I prefer them in publication order. When I originally read them publication was considered the “correct” order. My books are numbered that way. My son is five almost six and even though we have read quite a few longer books to him (he loves the Magic Treehouse Series) I have not started the Narnia series. Is your son enjoying them?


  5. I am also reading “The Power of a Praying Wife” and am participating in Hallee’s online study!!
    I have read “The Shack” as well.
    My highly recommended book, which is in my re-read pile is “Feminine Appeal: Seven Virtues of a Godly Woman”.


  6. I hear you with the never ending read list. I have three lists: the ones that I already know are at my library (kept in a notebook that I take with me to the library), the ones that I know I’m going to want to purchase (which means it’ll take a while to get to them since I’m a poor graduate student), and the ones that I plan on ILLing at a measured pace. The problem is, the lists grow faster than I can read (and I’m a pretty fast reader!)


  7. My wishlist of books right now is enormous! Currently I’m reading Suzanne Brockmann’s latest Trouble Shooters book – awesome stuff! 🙂


  8. Redeeming Love is on my all time favorite list. Just finished Her Mother’s Hope, Francine’s newest book.


  9. I recently cleared my nightstand of things I’d finished or abandoned. Now there’s my Bible, journal, sketchbook, and the book for the women’s monthly Bible Study. On my dresser are the stacks of books to be returned to the bookshelf, the library, the other library, or the person I borrowed them from. There’s nothing on my to-read list at the moment, but I’m considering diving into N. T. Wright again. I read the three big books and remember very little and can articulate less…

    My girlie says the Narnia books in order are the best way to read them!
    I’m pondering that praying wife study…I’ve heard of the book for awhile now. Thanks for sharing the link!
    I have The Shack on hand but have yet to read it…you’ll have to let us know your opinion.
