My brain is full

As I was tidying up the bedroom yesterday morning, I finally got around to putting away that stack of books that inevitably piles up next to the bed – you know the one, right?  Every self-respecting reader has it.

My stack of books contained (in this order):

Unaccustomed Earth

Einstein: His Life and Universe

Persuasion

Forever, Erma

The Brontë Myth*

We Are Still Married

Quite a variety, eh?

What can I say?  I love humorous essays and mind-numbingly intense biography.

And now that I have bared all:  What’s on your bedside book pile, right this instant?

*This is part of the “books I was supposed to have read during college and maybe even wrote papers about but am just now actually reading” genre.**

**Why yes, I did graduate college in 2007.  What’s your point?  I had a lot of catching up to do…

  1. Even though it SHOULD be my bar studying books, I am reading Sense and Sensibility. And I also never read that Bronte Myth book during school- fun times trying to come up with a good comment in class when I had no idea what the myth actually was. But then I graduated and read it for fun.

  2. I just finished reading “First They Killed My Father”, am rereading Pride and Prejudice and have a biography on Jackie O standing by. I havent read the Bronte Myth, so I may have to add it to my list 🙂

  3. Let’s see, there is “Cross Bones” by Kathy Reichs on top – bought yesterday, already three chapters in. Then we have “The Golden Compass” which I’m re-reading after 10 years because I can’t remember anything about the story. And finally there is the stack of Sandman comics from the library, which I wasn’t sure about until I started reading them (stupid me, it’s Neil Gaiman, what else could they be but awesome?).
    Oh, and “Knitting Rules”, to consult the sock recipe or whenever need a good laugh. Looove Stephanie’s writing.

  4. Pride and Prejudice: reading for the first time in 2010.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: re-reading mainly for the memories scenes.

    The End of Faith: Sam Harris.

    The Thurber Chronicles: James Thurber.

    The Magicians: Lev Grossman.

    The Demon Haunted World: Carl Sagan
