What's On My Nightstand?

What's On Your Nightstand

February was an odd month of reading for me. I read a bit more than last month but still not as much as "normal." I'm still working on being more selective with what I read so that I only read quality books, even involving those I am reading purely for entertainment.

Books completed in February (links are to my reviews):
Love and Respect for a Lifetime, Emerson Eggerichs
The Call of Zulina, Kay Marshall Strom
Prayers for Sale, Sandra Dallas
Beaded Hope, Cathy Liggett - a must-read!

Currently reading - A lot of this is carryover from last month as I am still plugging away.

Memoir/Autobiography/Biography - Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time

Health/Cookbooks - Skinny Italian: Eat It and Enjoy It - Live La Bella Vita and Look Great, Too!

Christian life - The Walk: Clear Direction and Spiritual Power for Your Life (Review copy)

Theology - Genesis (Bible) - reading in six different translations, focusing on God in each story rather than Adam, Noah, etc. Today I finished chapter 8.

For fun - The Romanov Bride

To-read in March

Finish everything I'm currently reading! I hesitate to add more books to my pile as it'll be difficult to finish everything I've already started. But... if I can get to them, I want to read:

Christian life - The Ultimate Makeover: Becoming Spiritually Beautiful in Christ

Memoir/Autobiography/Biography - Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance

Good job knowing your limits and not adding too many additional books to your list. That is definitely NOT one of my strengths. I just keep adding book upon book upon book. For instance, that Beaded Hope one you raved about? Gotta get my hands on that!

I've had that Eggerichs book for a long time but still haven't read it. I've also read Beaded Hope--I really like stories about Africa. Thanks for stopping by my blog'

You're kind of doing what I am, though you're much more organized about it. I am trying to read things in different categories each month.

The Love and Respect book looks like a good read. I'll have to look into it.

Beaded Hope sounds good! I'll have to add it to my list. I will be interested to hear your thoughts on the Obama book ...

Oh, I really enjoyed Beaded Hope as well. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the books you didn't like as much also - it is really helpful!
