Nightstand status

nightstandIt’s that time again.

Here is the list of books I hope to read in the month of July.


Here is the list of books I planned to read in June, with progress made:

  1. Dred Scott’s Revenge by Judge Andrew Napolitano (Thomas Nelson book review blogger) – finished
  2. Patriarch: George Washington and the New American Nation by Richard Norton Smith – finished
  3. The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman – finished
  4. The Odyssey by Homer – keeps getting crowded out by library books
  5. Believing God by RC Sproul Jr. – finished

Other books I read this month:

  • I also read Honey, I Don’t Have a Headache Tonight by Sheila Wray Gregoire – very funny and very good. This was on my nightstand a few months ago and I’m glad I finally read it.
  • I picked up A City of Bells by Elizabeth Goudge and it was wonderful! Now I need to read the other 2 in the trilogy.
  • I also found a new author – still life by Louise Penny. There are another 4 in that series that I will enjoy reading. This was a well written mystery with great characters.
  • I read The Mysterious Benedict Society, loaned to me by an 11 year old – very good book
  • And the sixth Maisie Dobbs book, Among the Mad by Jacqueline Winspear came out so I read it as well.

Now we know why I didn’t finish The Odyssey.

  1. These are a bunch of new titles to me– I have to check out the Benedict Society books, since I’ve been seeing them on people’s shelves all over the place!

    There is The Mysterious Benedict Society again. I really need to get that book!

  3. I’ve seen those “pseudonymous Bosch” books once before, I think, but I’m pretty sure that my almost-11 year old would love them. Gotta look into them this summer!

    I liked John Adams, but anything historical is right up my alley. Happy Reading.

    Great list! I’ve seen the Jeremiah Burroughs book on two different nightstands now and the Mysterious Benedict Society on several.

    I read and loved the Benedict Society. You seem to choose meatier books than I do so perhaps you will be abel to finish John Adams by September – I’ve been puttering through it at a snail’s pace forever.
