On my Nightstand, January

Yes, it’s time for 5 Minutes for Books‘ monthly carnival, “What’s On Your Nightstand?” in which participants post what they’re reading, on the nightstand or no.

Currently reading:

The Gospel According to Jesus: What Is Authentic Faith?by John MacArthur

Brokenness: The Heart God Revives by Nancy Leigh Demoss (for our ladies’ Bible study meeting on Wednesday mornings)

Just finished:

All I Need Is Jesus and a Good Pair of Jeans: The Tired Supergirl’s Search for Grace by Susanna Foth Aughtmon (look for my upcoming review at 5 Minutes for Books)

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (loved it!)

Hope to begin soon:

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (for the Classics Bookclub at 5 Minutes for Books–it’s a long one so I need to begin soon!)

Perhaps Come Along: The Journey into a More Intimate Faith by Jane Rubietta or Tender Grace by Jackina Stark, both titles for review.

What about you? What are you reading? Let us know!

  1. I think this is the first time I haven’t said, “Oh no! We have all the same books going!” šŸ˜‰ However, the thought is still, “Oh! I like everything she’s reading!”

  2. Well, I am getting ready to have major surgery and will be down for 6 weeks, so I’m saving my reading for then. However, my list will be…..Safe PeopleIn a pit with a lion on a snowy dayWild Goose ChaseThe ShackGod ChasersCrazy Love

  3. I posted my this time, too – thanks for the reminder!!I just finished The Gospel According to Jesus, and I think I want to read it again – much to think about.And now you’ve caused me to add another book to my already long and growing list of things I want to read – The Book Thief.

  4. You should (or did you already?) post a review for The Book Thief. It’s one of those books everyone wonders about, and I’d love to see a review at 5M4B.And yeah, you should get started on Les Mis, but if you are reading an abridged version it won’t take toooo long (as I firmly believe everyone should, because books over 1000 pages SHOULD be abridged)

  5. Looks like a great list! I am scared to try Les Mis it looks intimidating. I read the abridged version in high school but I’m pretty sure I just read the cliff notes and watched the movie šŸ˜›

  6. You know, my online book club did The Book Thief a while back, but for some reason or another, I opted out, and I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about it since. Perhaps it needs to go on the TBR list!
