What’s on Your Nightstand — July

by Jennifer


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!

This should be great fun, to see what everyone else is reading. Not that I need to add to my ‘to be read’ list!


2 Trish July 29, 2008 at 8:44 am

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. :)


3 Nancy July 29, 2008 at 9:35 am

I’ve been waiting all week for this!

My goal for next month is clear off some of the pile.


4 Lisa (Morning Rose) July 29, 2008 at 9:41 am

Great meme! It’s fun to see what everyone is reading. I wrote about the Randy Alcorn books I’ve read and am currently reading.


5 Iva July 29, 2008 at 9:58 am

There were so many choices! I’ll be sure to have a good non-fiction review completed by the next WOYN!


6 Alexis July 29, 2008 at 10:06 am

I am so excited about this carnival! Thanks!


7 nicole July 29, 2008 at 10:18 am

I love this. One more resoure for book ideas is great.


8 Jen E July 29, 2008 at 10:44 am

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. :)


9 Rachel July 29, 2008 at 11:07 am

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! :)


10 Monica July 29, 2008 at 11:53 am

hi, Snap :)


11 Michele July 29, 2008 at 1:06 pm

I’ve already had fun reading everyone’s posts! Looking forward to next month!


12 Not-so Domestic Goddess July 29, 2008 at 1:15 pm

This is a fabulous idea. I love reading and look forward to finding some new recommendations. Thank you!!


13 Debbie July 29, 2008 at 3:02 pm

This really is a fun idea. I’ve read everyone’s comments and blogs. It was fun to see some of those nightstands.


14 Katy Lin July 29, 2008 at 3:08 pm

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!


15 Jennifer Bogart July 29, 2008 at 5:42 pm

This was fun, but I didn’t get links in to the books, just too many! :)


16 Sondra Santos LaBrie July 29, 2008 at 6:13 pm

I’ve added myself to the list as well as posting a link back to your site. I’m also adding this to our blogroll.


17 Jane July 29, 2008 at 6:30 pm

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! :)


18 Brittanie July 29, 2008 at 9:05 pm

I love seeing what other people are reading. :)


19 Amy N. July 29, 2008 at 10:02 pm

“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…”


20 Doll Clothes Gal July 29, 2008 at 11:49 pm

This will be a really fun site – I’m looking forward to reading more.


21 Latte Mommy July 30, 2008 at 2:01 am

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?”!


22 Eile July 30, 2008 at 7:42 am

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.



23 Heather A. Goodman July 30, 2008 at 12:04 pm

You know I love talking books! So my carnival post is up with my current reads.


24 Rachel Langston July 30, 2008 at 8:36 pm

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!


25 Marianne Thomas July 30, 2008 at 11:52 pm

What a fun idea! I’ll definitely be back next month, too!

Will be back to cruise everyone else’s nightstands!


26 dana July 31, 2008 at 9:20 am

Love this idea, anything to spark a conversation about a book! Thanks.


27 Gwen July 31, 2008 at 11:35 am

Such a great idea!


28 Yasmin August 3, 2008 at 12:34 am

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.


29 mari August 3, 2008 at 11:36 pm

I, of course, managed to add myself incorrectly. Sorry. Here is the link to the actual post.

on my nightstand</a

Great idea, btw.


30 Ana August 6, 2008 at 1:07 am

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.

For some reason, my laptop does not like Mr Linky widgets, but it does OK with the regular Mr Linky. I am signing up for What’s On Your Nightstand. Judy


32 (Judy) Intergalactic Bookworm September 6, 2008 at 6:52 am

I am interested in this “activity”, for lack of a better word. I know that you have others, too, but I just can’t find them. Judy
