Due to my family vacation I am woefully behind in getting my Nightstand post up. Since I am on the letter "R" for ABC Blogging I am going to kill two birds with one stone and combine these posts together.
My September list is a little on the light side, but since we will be starting school and figure out the curriculum that I will be teaching for my kids' co-op, I would rather pick less than more. I am hoping to get more read than I have picked. We'll see!
From my July Nightstand, I read:
- The Living Page: Keeping Notebooks with Charlotte Mason by Laurie Bestvater - Wow! This was an excellent read that really gave me a lot to think about. I don't know if I can implement notebooks as described in this book, but it would be worth a shot.
- Murder Must Advertise (Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries) by Dorothy Sayers - I thought last month I had read all of the Lord Peter Wimsey books only to discover I had somehow skipped this one. This was one not to be missed! Loved it!
- The Wife Campaign by Regina Scott - Pure fluff for my over tired mind.
- How Sweet It Is by Alice J. Wisler - I didn't read this since I picked up Two Mrs. Abbotts (see below) instead.
- The Baron's Honourable Daughter by Lynn Morris - I loved the Cheney Duvall Series written by Lynn Morris and Gilbert Morris, but I can't recommend this book at all. Too much detail was included which I found annoying. Give me Georgette Heyer any day.
- Two Mrs. Abbotts (Miss Buncle Book 3) by D. E. Stevenson - I can't put my finger on why I like these books, but I do. They are just enjoyable reads.
- Mrs.McGinty's Dead by Agatha Christie - Still working my way through Poirot mysteries.
- Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas - Sequel to The Three Musketeers. Once I got through the beginning of the story which seemed to make no sense whatsoever, I really enjoyed the story. It is full of adventure and mystery. I did feel like I needed to find a good book of French History to put everything into place. Maybe if I listened to the beginning again it would help fill in the gaps.
