What’s on Your Nightstand — November

by Jennifer


What's On Your Nightstand

Do you read more as the cool weather sets in and the holidays approach? Let us know what you’ve been reading or what you plan to read in the next month.

Perhaps your love of reading gets edged out by all of the tasks on your list. If that’s the case, join us at 5 Minutes for Books in sharing some of your favorite cookbooks or activity books that you’ll be turning to this month for inspiration.

As a reminder, you can participate here in a variety of ways:

  1. Share a list of books you hope to read this month, with or without a picture of the stack.
  2. Go into a bit of detail about what you’re reading and why. How did a particular book come to be on your nightstand? Why are you reading this book this month?
  3. Give a few quick reviews of books that you read over the past month.

So, now it’s your turn. Link up and share “What’s on Your Nightstand?” Please link to the direct post, NOT your main page. If you enter the wrong link, you can email me or leave a comment, and I can delete it. You can also delete it yourself by refreshing the page and then clicking on the smiley face that should appear next to the link that you entered.

If you don’t have a blog, feel free to leave us a comment with your Nightstand list.

This is my final plea, but I know some of you may be new to the site from this carnival: Have you answered our reader survey? I will publish the results next week, but if you haven’t done it, could you take 2 minutes right now?

Looking forward to visiting some other blogs and seeing what others are reading. Thanks for hosting this — I look forward to it each month.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

It gets tricky to fit in lots of reading during this hectic holiday time, so if I can finish at least two books I’m happy :)


3 Ana T November 25, 2008 at 7:11 am

Thanks for hosting this, I think I read even more since I started participating. Off to read the other blogs…


4 Gail November 25, 2008 at 8:26 am

I think some of my reading is getting edged out by other tasks at the moment! But I hope to get several read this next month.


5 Kimberly/Mom in the City November 25, 2008 at 11:04 am

It’s hard to steal a moment to read this time of the year. This month, I’m reading GOOD DEALS & SMART STEALS and O’S BIG BOOK OF HAPPINESS.


6 Alicia November 25, 2008 at 11:11 am

I’m excited to link up for the first time!


7 Ashley November 25, 2008 at 1:37 pm

9 Lori November 26, 2008 at 8:16 am

AGAIN, I’m a day late to the carnival! Better late than never, I suppose. Thanks, 5 Minutes for Books! Love your site!


10 drey November 26, 2008 at 10:14 am

I completely fell on my reading this month! I’m not sure what happened? Unless I forgot some of the books, which is entirely possible! =)


11 Catherine November 26, 2008 at 3:06 pm

Thanks for the great idea. I am running out of books to read and needed some help finding new ones. This is sure to help.


12 Kipi November 26, 2008 at 10:46 pm

I’m a day late getting my list up, but better late than never, right?

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

I wrote my post the other day, but forgot to leave my Mr Linky! Oops! Please stop by. :)
