What's On My Nightstand - January Edition

What's On Your Nightstand

It's been a while since I participated in the What's On Your Nightstand carnival at 5 Minutes for Books. My list this month is long, and I'll just tell you right now that there's no way I'm getting all of these read any time soon (thank goodness I can renew my library books online!). Still, here they are:

~I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I'm finishing this up for the Classics Bookclub.

~Unaccustomed Earth. A book of short stories. I've read the first two. Intense and exquisite at the same time.

~Teaching Your Children Healthy Sexuality: A Biblical Approach to Preparing Them for Life (Pure Foundations). With a 10-year old girl in the house, this is a critical read!

~Change Your Habits, Change Your Life: A Proven Plan for Healthy Living. Do I really need to elaborate on this one?

~The Face. I enjoy Angela Hunt's work. Can't wait to dive into this one!

~Born Country: How Faith, Family, and Music Brought Me Home. I'm a small town girl who grew up in the 80s, and the group Alabama was a big part of my teenage life.

~Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island (Anne of Green Gables). I was trying to read these in time for Carrie's Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge. Sadly, it's not going to happen. But I do want to read them, so I'm not returning them quite yet.

When am I going to find time to read all of these? I honestly have no idea. But it's going to be fun trying!

Big list but a good one. Lots of variety. You'll find the time - we also have time for the things we really want to do.

Oh good, you're here playing today! And YAY for not returning the Anne books. You can still blog about why you WANT to read them (or what you've gathered from the movies about them) if you'd like. Feel free!

I like your list of books.

Great list! I love Angela Hunt too. :)

I'm reading John Piper's "Spectactular Sins", and Jennifer Rothchild's "Fingerprints of God." Not a long list at all!

I've got The Face on some stack somehwere. Since it is not a library book with a time limit, it gets left to be read later.

I read Anne for the first time -- loved her!! Amanda did too.

Also, I was just offered this anthology of first period stories, so I accepted it -- LOL.

Looks like a great list. I am going to look into the Teaching Your Children Healthy Sexuality for my 10 year old SIL.. her parents need a good book like this to help guide her.

Looks like a great list. We have four kids (ages 8, 10, 12, and 15) so, I'm really interested in checking out the 'Teaching Your Children Healthy Sexuality' book. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
