Spin Cycle: On the Nightstand

Tonight when I was putting her to bed, Lilli and I were just trading "I love you more"s and she said "I love you to the moon! I hope you land on it and bounce around in love!"

That has nothing to do with tonight's topic, it just needed documented.

Tonight's topic, one of my favorites ever brought to you by The Spin Cycle, is books. It isn't one of my favorites because I expect to be particularly insightful or witty, it's one of my favorites because I'm an insatiable reader. I'll read pretty much anything anywhere, and I'll enjoy it. I'm not too shy to share the pile of books on my nightstand and I'm looking forward to checking out the other spins to add to it.

Presently on my nightstand are the following:

9 different magazines. Parents, Parenting, Redbook (I've turned into my mother), Ladies Home Journal (I've turned into my grandmother), Better Homes and Gardens, Food Network, Taste of Home, Martha Stewart Living, and Real Simple. They're all my current issue of magazines I subscribe to. Yes, I know how many trees are crying right now.

Bossypants by Tina Fey- in process. I expected to laugh more, but I still like it.

The Bro Code by Barney Stinson, the character from How I Met Your Mother- my husband just finished it and I stole it.

The Islands of the Blessed by Nancy Farmer. #3 in a Young Adult series (Sea of Trolls, Land of the Silver Apples). I'll start it as soon as I'm done listening to the audiobook for #2. (Tomorrow), and I expect it to be good.

Black Heels and Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond- Because I'm a huge Pioneer Woman fan and I've only read the parts she posted on her site. Looking forward to this one.

Unnatural Issue by Mercedes Lackey- Another Young Adult author in the fantasy genre. I like almost everything she's written and this one just came out.

Silks by Dick Francis- Because he's one of my favorite mystery writers and I read his books over and over into complete shabbiness.

I really don't think I'm going to be disappointed by any of them.

I should probably get off the internet and get busy reading, don't you think? But first I'm going to head over to Sprite's Keeper, take a look at the other spins, and make a list for my next trip to the library!

I really enjoyed Bossypants, but it felt like a really quick read. Less than 100 pages on the Nook.
Great way to spend a few hours though!
You're linked!

I haven't read any of these, so they're added to my list! Thanks!
