What’s On My Nightstand: September 2012
What’s on my nightstand? So many books! My post two months ago was rather ambitious. Since then I’ve lost my job. One would think that not having a job would mean more reading, reviewing and blogging but alas: job hunting takes much more time than actually working! I did manage to finish the Alexander McCall Smith books as well as reading several others. I ended up spending two weeks out in Washington state visiting grandparents and reading books my Granny recommended. Two of them in particular I really enjoyed. The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth Through Music and The Cello Suites: J. S. Bach, Pablo Casals, and the Search for a Baroque Masterpiece. I am hoping to review both of them as soon as I can get my hands on copies.
I am adding a review book from goodreads: The Time In Between: A Novel. So far I am greatly enjoying it. Set in Morocco before and during World War II Siri has captured my attention. One of the reasons I am enjoying this books is that Siri is a seamstress. I enjoy reading books where the characters’ creativity is a big part of the story because it inspires me to be more creative.
This month I am also hoping to pick up something by G. K. Chesterton because that is one of my reading goals for this year that I have been neglecting.
