I never answered last week’s Booking Through Thursday, so am doing so now, to get it in under the wire:
On Thursday, May 27th, Booking through Thursday asked:
What books do you have next to your bed right now? How about other places in the house? What are you reading?
My book collection is rather eclectic. I have books that I’ve had since childhood, books that I kept that still have notices reminding me when I could sell textbooks back to the bookstore for cash, and books that I bought and never read.
My to-be-read pile lives in a combination of piles on my nightstand and books still in Barnes and Noble bags, waiting for me. I am embarrassed to admit that I bought a second copy of Three Cups of Tea a few weeks ago, forgetting that I already had a copy in my TBR queue.
Tonight, sparked by this question, I went through the stacks, and listed, in no particular order the books that I have yet to read. Or the bulk of them, anyway. There are others, because sometimes something appeals to me in the moment and then by the time I get to it my mood has changed. It’s not a problem though, because eventually everything does get read.
But anyway, the list:
- Barefoot, by Elin Hilderbrand – IN PROGRESS
- Girl in Hyacinth Blue, by Susan Vreeland
- Ground Up, by Michael Idov
- The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, by Syrie James
- Acedia & Me, by Kathleen Norris
- Three Cups of Tea, by Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin
- Touchstone, by Laurie R. King
- Muse and Reverie, by Charles de Lint
- Changes, by Jim Butcher
- Hope in a Jar, by Beth Harbison
- Lunch in Paris, by Elizabeth Bard
- The Last Song, by Nicholas Sparks
- The House on Oyster Creek, by Heidi Jon Schmidt
- The Blue Bistro, by Elin Hilderbrand
So, what’s on YOUR list?
