What's on My Nightstand -- January

I made some reading goals along with my other 2012 goals this year: read 12 books "just for me" this year, and keep accurate records of what I'm reading.  I'm doing okay on both of those, having read one book "just for me" (in addition to another one I read in December, pre-goal!). 

Reading breakdown for the month: Read: 1 1/2 adult fiction, 2 YA fiction, 2 1/4 nonfiction. Audiobooks: 1 YA and 1 Nonfiction.

Recently reviewed:
Goals for this month:
New on the list -- all for review: Maybe (but probably not!) Audiobooks (getting behind on these as well!)

I'd love to listen to the Steve Jobs book too.

I finally have my daughter reading "The Next Story." She's not as crazy about it as I was--I don't think she likes seeing social media dissed at all. ;-)

I read "Quiet" for review too. Loved it. Haven't written my review yet though. It's a lot to process.

I'm behind on my audio books too. How can this happen? Ha. Oh well. Happy reading.

A lot of great books! I'm anxious to read The Pioneer woman's book also.

We haven't read Toys Come Home, but we read the first two after you introduced them to us. We'll have to put that on our list!

From Blah to Awe sounds like a book I needed when I was thirteen! I am just starting Four Letter Words, which is aimed at Christian teens as well. Should be interesting!

My read-aloud with C. is going oh-so-very slowly, but we're hanging in there and will eventually finish. Very curious about Quiet (being a major introvert). And Dean Koontz's book about his beloved dog.

I've enjoyed what I've heard about the Introverts book by Lisa Notes.

I'm reading Falling Together now, I'm liking it so far. I've heard a lot about The Fault in Our Stars, it sounds really good.

So glad you're reading Toys Come Home! I was going to suggest these Emily Jenkins books to you in my last comment, but thought they were better read-alouds than read-alones. Aren't they wonderful? And I look forward to hearing about the introverts book, too.

You have a long reading list for next month! It looks like a great set of books, though.

I've recently started reading Challies' blog but haven't yet read any of his books. He seems like a really good writer and his posts are very thought provoking.

Happy reading!

Perhaps a wee bit unbelievably, I'm reading The Pioneer Woman romance book right now! (Although I have to say it's my bathroom reader and that's...about where I'd keep it. Which I'm discovering doesn't say much about a book. The bathroom is where I give books a try and see if I like them. It's still in there though so I'll probably finish it.) ;)
