The folks at 5 Minutes For Books host What’s On Your Nightstand? the fourth Tuesday of each month in which we can share about the books we have been reading and/or plan to read. You can learn more about it by clicking the link or the button.
I am also using this post for Booking Through Thursday since the question for this week is: What books do you have next to your bed right now? How about other places in the house? What are you reading?
The one book that is actually physically on my nightstand it Daily Light on the Daily Path, a devotional book of Scripture verses compiled by Samuel Bagster. I read the evening selection right before bedtime.
The books I have finished since last month are:
The Telling, next in the Seasons of Grace series by Beverly Lewis about an Amish mother who left her family without explanation in order to try to make something right from her past, then came home to seek her family’s forgiveness. My review is here.
I am currently reading:
This Fine Life by Eva Marie Everson.
Traveler’s Rest by Sue Carter Stout.
Hope and Help For Your Nerves by Dr. Claire Weekes.
Hoping for Something Better: Refusing to Settle for Life as Usual, a Bible study by Nancy Guthrie. I’ve only read the introduction and part of the first chapter so far, but it is excellent. I don’t normally go straight from one Bible study into another — I like to primarily just read the Bible in my devotional time, this time with Warren Wiersbe’s With the Word as a companion. But I had so enjoyed Nancy’s anthologies for Easter and Christmas that when I saw she had written a Bible study, I knew right away I wanted to go through it.
Next up is Detour, a non-fiction sequel to Dr. Frau: A Woman Doctor Among the Amish by Grace H. Kaiser. That’s the last book on my Spring Reading Thing list besides a classic — I’ve been thinking about Emma by Jane Austen or an Agatha Christie novel. I know — I’ve been saying that for ages. I need to get get one of them and actually put it on my shelf.
And I don’t mean to be so repetitive for regular readers, but since this is a meme for readers, I wanted to mention one more time that I have begun hosting a meme on Mondays where we can share interesting quotes we’ve read from books, blogs, etc. It’s called The Week In Words: you can read more about it here, and I hope you’ll join us.
