What’s on Your Nightstand — July

What's On Your Nightstand

It’s here!

I can’t tell you how excited your enthusiasm for this new monthly carnival has made me. I think it will be a blast to read around and see what is on everyone’s nightstand: in progress, coming up soon, almost finished. . . .

The guidelines are simple:

  • Write a post on your own blog (or feel free to play along in the comments if you don’t have a blog).
  • You can simply post a picture, or tell us how and when these books got into your to-be-read pile, or give a mini-review of the books in progress.
  • Link up to this post (please use the permalink that will take us directly to that post, not the main page of your blog).
  • Read around through the links and find out “What’s on Their Nightstand?”

If you’ve followed someone else’s post over here, and it’s past Tuesday, feel free to go ahead and link up. There’s no deadline.

Come back on fourth Tuesday of next month, August 26, to do it again!

    Whew, I feel better! I used this link-up to clear off all the books that have been sitting around waiting for me to mention them to someone else. :)

  2. says

    Well I went a bit off the deep end, but I’m up and posted: Alanna the First Adventure by Tamora Pierce, Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs and Family Tree by Barbara Delinksy is the short answer. :)

  3. says

    thanks for doing this! its fun to see what everyone else is reading! i linked up to a post i wrote about The Time Travelers Wife because 1. it was a GREAT book and 2. I’m rereading it, and thus it is currently BACK on my nightstand! :)

  4. says

    my to-read-list grows every day, i think and i can’t seem to get through the ones i’ve started! i’ll have to post later this evening! i’ve got a lot to say, lol!

  5. says

    What a great idea Jennifer! I just discovered this blog today! I’m looking forward to having a peak at what others have on their nightstands! :)

    “I read. A lot. And then I make lists of books I want to read. A lot. And I read most of the ones I end up getting quickly…most of the time. I find that I read fiction 50 times faster than non-fiction…”

    Just discovered this site today, but I can assure you that I will be back for more. I love books, am an avid reader of books of many different kinds, and I love to get recommendations from new sources! I don’t blog about books much, but I think your carnival will become a monthly “must do” for my blog.

    So delighted to find you and participate in the first ever “What’s on Your Nightstand?”!

  8. says

    Hi, I am very glad that you started this. I am looking forward to learning all about new books and sharing my thoughts as well.


  9. says

    VERY shortly after I got home from the library with my “substitute” books, I got a message saying the ones I reserved were ready.

    I like the reserved ones better!

  10. says

    I love this…I participate in a Thursday meme (Thursday 13) but it’s not tailored to books…my first love after God, hubby and kids…lol. Thanks so much for coming up with this idea and I’m looking forward to participating.

  11. says

    This is a fun idea and I just puy a picture of mine up. Looking forward to go check what everyone else had on their nightstand.
