What book is on your nightstand?

It's too hot to do much outside which is where I'd like to be but sitting next to the large windows in our living room I can look out at the blue skies dotted with cotton ball clouds and the whirly jig in the garden that is suppose to deter veggie hungry critters turning in big gusts of hot wind.  The grass is fading from bright green to thirsty brown the way it always does this time of year in our plains area.  I also see a wasp flitting about on the covered porch looking for a new spot to build it's nest.  On the table by my chair lies the latest Jodi Picoult novel I'm reading, Leaving Time.  I only recently discovered this author and am anxious to read all her books.  My reading style has always been that of a skimmer, but not for her.  I find myself re reading descriptions and conversations that in most books I barely acknowledge.  The references to real places I'm slightly familiar with in a fictitious setting catch my attention.  I have to be mindful of the time or I will lose myself and dust will pile up on the furniture while the family scrounges for left overs in the fridge.

The July Bound by Books link up party is ready and waiting for your submissions.  I'd love to see some crafty book page ideas, table vignettes with a book or two incorporated, a recipe book I must add to my collection or your review of a book or author you love.


  1. I have my Kindle Fire tablet next to my bed. I love to read in the dark once the boys are asleep and the house is quiet. I speed read, so there is a new book every week. If I am lucky, I get to read 2.

  2. Ah, I didn't know you had a book link-up! Will have to remember that next month :)

    So happy to hear you've discovered Jodi Picoult. I love her novels. Leaving Time is on my TBR bookcase (yes, I have a while bookcase of books waiting to be read!) - I need to get to it soon. Some of my other favorites of hers include Plain Truth (one of her earliest but excellent), Nineteen Minutes, and My Sister's Keeper. I love how she can take a topic and show you all the shades of gray and make you think.

    Enjoy your books!
