What's On Your Nightstand - February


It is time for What's On Your Nightstand for February hosted as always by 5 Minutes for Books.






This month just flew by and it feels like I've hardly made a dent in my TBR pile. However, I have been good and only purchased about 5 books during the month. I can't tell you how hard it was staying out of the used book store by our business. Easy temptation, but I was too busy to even think about it...most of the time.

I completed the remaining books on my Winter Reading Challenge list, which freed me up to read what ever I feel like in my TBR pile.





Since Lent starts on Wednesday, my plan is to read The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton and complete Bridges to contemplative living # 1: Entering the School of your Experience.





I have been going through my old boxes of science fiction / fantasy books and decided to revisited some old friends and reread a few. Next up I think will be "On a Pale Horse" by Piers Anthony. I acquired most of these books during the 1980's so will see if they are as good as I think they were or if my opinion has changed.


I am looking forward to reading these because I have heard many good things about them.






Also these two authors are my favorites and enjoy everything they write.





What book is on your nightstand calling your name to read next?

  1. I'm reading The Graveyard Book right now! I'm only the first few chapters into in though...I hope that I'm not disappointed. I've heard a lot of good things about it too.

  2. I've heard of 'Seven Story Mountain' but never actually flipped through a copy or read it. It's a good idea for this season. I'm going to see if I can find a copy.

  4. These look like some great choices. Piers Anthony was one of my favorites when I was heavily into sci-fi/fantasy, and I think that series will probably stand the test of time - hope you enjoy re-reading it!

  7. I love Thomas Merton. Good choice for Lent. I also love Nora Roberts but just can't get into her alter ego in the future. Happy Reading.

  11. ooo aren't discounted books the hardest to resist. We have a big bookfair that happens about 5 times a year. The books are discounted 60-90% of the retail price and it is soooo tempting! Looks like a great plan for this month :-)

  16. Wow, you have a lot of great books on your list. My church recently had a marriage retreat with "Fireproof" as the theme. I missed it, but I heard that it was great.
