What’s on Your Nightstand, April 24

Unfortunately, my nightstand/bookshelf is piling up. I’ve tried to say no to book offers coming my way. It’s a busy time of year, and add to that, we had some major upheaval that has had me driving, and talking, and planning, and helping. Notice I did NOT say reading. I’ve only read about 150 pages in the last 8 days. That’s probably a record.

I know that I will return to my beloved books, and I’m still snatching a few minutes of reading time at the end of my very long days. By next month’s Nightstand, my kids will be almost out of school. Summer and other vacations are great for my reading time, so I’m not in despair over the prospects of clearing off my nightstand of TBRs just yet.

What about you? Please link up below. We’d love to hear how April went as far as a reading month, or what you plan to read in May.

    Glad I’m not the only one who’s got a stack piling up! April is just such a busy time of year – things will slow down in May when school gets out and then we have our road trip, I’m going to try to read on the road and see how it goes. We’ll have long stretches of nothing but flat highway so hopefully I won’t get nauseated!

    I remember saying when my children were still in school that I thought Spring/End of the school year was a busier season than the Fall/Christmas season. I can encourage y’all still in that season of life that they do grow up and move on and you have more time to read.

    Currently, I’m reading The Song Remains the Same which I got after reading the review here on 5 Minutes.

    Recently finished Charles Martin’s latest, Thunder and Rain. Martin is probably my favorite author and I have loved each of his novels. This one did not disappoint.

    Also read Giant George by Dave Nasser. Nasser’s pet Great Dane, George, is the world’s largest dog and reading his account of raising George is a fun read.

    Still waiting on my Kindle/nightstand:

    These Girls by Sarah Pekkanen
    In the Water They Can’t See You Cry by Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard
