What's On Your Nightstand? October Edition

What's On Your Nightstand I've been reading quite a bit this month and I am hoping that the next month will be as successful. However, I also have a big research project due so...

Without further ado here is my plan:

I want to get on with some of my challenges so from the challenges:

My Antonia by Willa Cather

This book interests me because it is about a woman by a woman from a time when this was not necessarily something common.

A Horse Called Wonder by Joanna Campbell

This is for the Childhood Favourites Challenge. As a tween and early teen I read these books all the time. I adored them! I wanted a thoroughbred of my own.

And then...

Kindred in Death by J.D. Robb

BookDepository sent me a message over the weekend to say that they should be shipping this soon. I am so excited. I love J. D. Robb's books and I really want to find out what happens next. So I guess I am haunting the mailbox over the next few days.

Guardians of the West by David Eddings

This is part of my re-read of The Belgariad and The Mallorean. This is the first book in The Mallorean. I am really looking forward to reading this.

I will continue reading the following books. They will probably carry over into December since I only read a few pages at a time. 

The History of the Ancient World by Susan Wise Bauer

How to Read a Book by Mortimer J. Adler and Charles van Doren

I am really hoping to get some more reading done than these books but I would like to pace myself especially since I will loose a weekend of reading with Thanksgiving.

I've never read anything by Cather, but you are certainly correct about her being ahead of her time! Happy reading this month--

Childhood Favorites sounds like a great challenge. I love re-reading along with my daughter (now 11).

I haven't read anything by Cather either but I have wanted to since my American Lit professor mentioned her earlier this year.

I am really enjoying the Childhood Favourites challenge. I love reading children's books but I had really gotten out of the habit. Now I have the perfect excuse to get back into them.

I read the Eddings series such a long time ago, I really should read them again. I'm sure I have forgotten almost everything.

Looks like you have some great reads this month! Love Eve and Roark too.

DebD, you really should. My sister and I decided that they are the perfect fall read. They are just cosy to curl up with.

Nise, I find them so real and relatable even though they are so very different from me. I keep checking to see if the book has shipped yet. I think I might have a problem :)
