There's always a stack. The titles will change but the stack never leaves. Some are books that I have selected, a couple are books that my SIL read and recommended and one was a gift.
Not only do I always have a stack by my bedside but I also read 6 titles a year for the book club that I am a member of. Our selection for this month is Joy in the Morning by Betty Smith. I hate to admit it but I won't have it finished by the time we meet. Tonight. I am enjoying it though and I will finish it.
Not only will we be discussing that book but we will also be selecting the books we will be reading in 2009. We are supposed to bring suggestions. I have a tendency to always have a running list of books that I want to read and it's quite lengthy. I'll be considerate and limit my list. Here are my top suggestions.
- Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
- The Alchemist by Paul Coelho
- The Shack by William P. Young (I've read this one.)
Have you read any of these? Are there others you would recommend?
