A little bit about books, a little bit about life.

What's on Your Nightstand?

I'm late....in the evening PST....in posting "What's on My Nightstand", but I wanted to go ahead and get it in.
Jennifer at "5 minutes for books" says this about participating:
it's a dangerous exercise, and I appreciate all of you who take the risk each month of exposing your to-be-read pile

It is dangerous for me, because my TBR pile is usually a MESS! LOL
and this time, it's not on my nightstand, but here in the chair in the family room.

It's a pile of books from which I want to choose one...just one....to recommend to my book club tomorrow night. If you read down, two posts below, you will see just how confused I am about which book to choose.

The Madonnas of Leningrad is also in this pile--which will be read for the February choice.
And Devil in the White City--which is Feb's choice for my 2nd book club.

Right now, I'm finishing up "Out of the Deep I Cry" ( A Claire Fergusson/Russ Van-Alstyne Mystery).
A funny story about looking for a book....a few days ago, I was wandering about the house, saying, "I'm looking for a book...I'm looking for a book", when my husband asked me what I was doing.
He got a confused look on his face, because...we have books/bookshelves in every room of our house. But I was looking for this particular book..."Out of the Deep I Cry". And I found it. Almost done. It's 3rd in a series of mysteries by Julia Spencer-Fleming. I love series mysteries.

I'll read Madonna's this weekend and then start on Devil.

:-0 I have so many books to read that I will never catch up! I have them everywhere! I read one and 2 or 3 more get added to the pile. But I love it!

Oh I have been wanting to read the Devil in the White City. I will be interested to see how you like it. I tagged you for a meme here.
