Books on the Nightstand? Posted on November 1, 2010 by Lauren Christopher Hope everyone had a fun Halloween! So I haven’t asked in awhile — what book is on your nightstand these days? Anything keeping you up, reading late into the night, lately?
Just finished all the Harry Potter’s again in anticipation of the movie 🙂 Now I’m reading Scoundrel by Zoe Archer, who was recommended by Smart Bitches. I’m not sure about it…
Otherwise, I will be at the bookstore tomorrow to pick up the last in the Trilogy for Nora Roberts, her JD Robb next In Death installment, and Lisa Kleypas’s new contemporary hard cover that looks awesome. 🙂
I also want to read Stephanie Laurens’s last Cobra installation that came out last week, I forget the name of it!
Kristi´s last blog post ..Happy Halloween!
Kristi, you always have great recommendations! I think you and I have much the same taste in romance fiction. But I’m behind in the “latest” (since I’m still reading backlists for people I decide I like!), so you keep me up to date! Which is Nora’s latest trilogy? I’ll have to look up that new Kleypas one. I still haven’t read any of her books — not sure where to dive in.
Right now I am reading “Bridge of Sighs” by Richard Russo…….so many books so little time! Have a great week.
DareToBecome — Do you like “Bridge of Sighs”? I read Russo’s “Empire Falls” and really enjoyed it. It didn’t make a wild impression on me while I was reading it, but it’s one of those books I find myself recalling vividly for some reason — his descriptions of the town, the people, etc. left a “memory” with me as if I actually saw them.
I am reading “Can you keep a Secret” by Sophie Kinsella. I just got a kindle for my birthday so I can’t wait to finish the book and start one on there. I see you are reading a new Jennifer Crusie, is it good? I think I will try that one on the kindle. Do you like yours? I haven’t tried to download anything yet, my husband bought me a different ereader first but we couldn’t download anything – it wasn’t compatible with anything, so I got the kindle instead. It was hard trying to figure out which one is easier/better. I chose the kindle because Amazon make is look very easy but the only draw back was that you can only get books from Amazon. I figure any book I want to read should be in Amazon eventually, if it isn’t already, right!
Debi, first of all, Happy Birthday!!!!! Another October baby (like Nate)! Secondly, I’m so happy you got a Kindle!!!!!! You read so much — it seems like a perfect thing for you. I’m still figuring out mine, so have no advice to give, but we can muddle through together. 🙂 Yes, Jenny Crusie’s new book is the first one I bought on the Kindle because it was only in hardback (but reasonably priced on Kindle!), so I gave it a whirl. I liked reading it on the Kindle. The only tiny drawback is that you can’t see the title of the book when you’re reading, so people would ask me, “What are you reading on that?” and I’d stall — I totally couldn’t remember the name of the book! That was weird. Also, it’s a little hard to go back and search for something by “turning the pages backward.” I wanted to search for a name. But I know there’s a search function — I just haven’t figured out all the functions yet. Other than that, I loved the Kindle! As for the book — it was so-so. Not her best, but cute.
