It's been weeks since I last asked my longest-running blog question: What's on your nightstand? For those of you who have no idea who I am or why I'm here, I've been asking this question since 2004 when I first began blogging as The Book Maven (at AOL). Here's the thing: I never, ever get tired of hearing what everyone is reading, hoarding, skimming, ignoring. Never! In another life, in another time, I would have made an excellent indie bookseller. Since that was not my fate, here I am to pester you via blog entries.
Here's what I've got in rotation:
-- I just finished SACRED HEARTS by Sarah Dunant, but I still want to take a look at her bibliography/further reading section, so I've left the Advance Reading Copy (ARC) on my stack.
-- A galley of Jennifer Weiner's BEST FRIENDS FOREVER, which I'm reading and marking up for next week's Center Stage discussion here on BN.com.
-- An ARC of Melanie Gideon's THE SLIPPERY YEAR. wonderful essays/memoir.
-- THREE CUPS OF TEA in a trade paperback lent to me by a friend. I Really Will Read It. Soon!
-- THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins; I want to finish before I start CATCHING FIRE, but I have to read this book on sunny days with upbeat music playing or I get really depressed...
There's more, but you might get really depressed if I don't stop soon. Can't wait to hear about your stack!
