Books on My Nightstand~ October

Here are my current books... not too many as I'm getting geared up for NaNoWriMo which starts in just a few days (!!).

  1. Praying God's Word Day By Day by Beth Moore~ I've been reading this daily devotional since the beginning of 2008 and I really like it.
  2. No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty~ I've returned to this book to use as a guideline for some basic outlining for my WriMo novel. I like Baty's suggestions for getting prepped for the month of writing a lot.
  3. I heart bloomberg by Melody Carlisle~ I'm about halfway through this one and it's pretty cute (and I love that it's the 1st of a series). I wanted to read a couple more Christian chick lit novels to get me fired up for WriMo.
  4. Love Starts with Elle by Rachel Hauck~ I'm super excited about this one; I hope to read it, too, before starting my novel. I loved the prequel to this, Sweet Caroline~I borrowed it from my friend Ashley and she said she liked Elle's story even better so I can't wait! :) Oh, and thanks to Amy @ Litfuse I won a free copy, too!

Books on My Nightstand: September 2008

What's On Your Nightstand

This is my first participation in a blog carnival! 5 Minutes for Books (click to see everyone else's links!) does a monthly carnival where participators can post what books are currently on their nightstand. I have plenty (I rarely read only 1 book at a time) so I thought I'd join in. Here's my current nightstand o' books:

  1. Princess Mia (PD #9) by Meg Cabot {fun YA fiction!}

  2. Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow {my Bible study book}

  3. No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty {more on this book in the near future}

  4. Write is a Verb by Bill O'Hanlon {looked interesting, haven't started!}

  5. Gorgeously Green by Sophie Uliano {had it checked out for awhile, need to get on it!}

  6. Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss (for the grammar nerd in me)

  7. Bella Tuscany by Frances Mayes {my ongoing nightstand book- I love it because I can pick it up and read it at any time, even after a while, as it's little vignettes, stories & recipes that don't necessarily depend on each other}
