What's On Your Nightstand - September

Well, I had to laugh when I saw my pitiful number of books I read this month. You can tell I was focused on other things like school planning, which I always put off to the last minute, and then getting our homeschool year off to a good start. So hopefully, this next month I will be able to find more time for more reading.

For October:

I also read:

  • The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton - I read this for book club. I was aware of the movie but have never watched that or read the book before. I was pleasantly surprised by this story and ended up really enjoying it.
  • A Spy's Devotion by Melanie Dickerson - I read the second book in this series last month and finally got the first book from the library. This was a fluffy read which is sometimes necessary.

I listened to:

  • A Basic History of the United States, Vol 1: The Colonial Experience 1607-1774 by Clarence B. Carson - I listened to this while preparing for our school year. My highschoolers are delving into a year long study of American History which is quite thorough. I really, really enjoyed this book though it did have some dry moments. Now if I can find a way to squeeze it into our schedule--every homeschool mom's dilemma!


  1. You are going to love Reading People!
    I only reviewed three books in September, myself, so I guess maybe it was a slow month for both of us!

  2. I've read a number of Melanie's but not that one yet. The one about offense sounds really intriguing. I'd enjoy learning more about Stowe's life.

  3. "Fluffy read which is sometimes necessary" -- ha, I know what you mean :) It's amazing you can read and also prepare for home schooling. Kudos! I read The Outsiders back when I taught 6th grade. Yes, a good book.

  4. I just read a collection of Dickerson's fairy tale novels and found them delightful. Yes, sometimes a light read is just the thing! Here's my bookshelf for September:
