What's On Your Nightstand - August & September

What's On Your Nightstand

What a crazy two months! Last month my computer died on the day that I was going to work on my September Nightstand. I was also sitting down to do my big homeschool planning for the year. When I finally got a new computer homeschool planning took precedence. I decided to just wait until this month to put up my post. Thankfully, homeschooling is going well even though my reading life feels kind of lost. Right now I'm just picking up books that look interesting that are sitting around my room. It is not very purposeful, but I am reading!

For October:

From July's Nightstand I read:
  • Boundaries with Teens by John Townsend - This was a good read. It really is loaded with how to deal with a lot of different scenarios and if I read again I would probably just pick the parts that I felt I needed help with. Definitely a resource book.
I also read:
I listened to:

  • The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer - I decided to listen to this after listening to way too many podcasts and I just needed a break. Many people claim The Grand Sophy to be one of Heyer's best books, but while I find it enjoyable I believe there are others that are better. 
  • North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell - This story really reminded me of Pride and Prejudice in many ways though it dealt with way deeper issues. I'm glad I read it, but I have to admit I find Wives and Daughters by Gaskell more to my liking.

 See what others have read over at 5 Minutes for Books.
