[FEATURE] On the Nightstand, January 2010.

18 01 2010

I have to admit that I was an inattentive blogger in 2009, and I will try to right this slackness in 2010.

A little late, since we are more than halfway through the month, but let’s get a discussion started.

WHAT ARE YOU READING?

I had taken home a big pile of 2008 advance reader copies at one point, and am only now getting to read them, mixed in with some re-reads.

Currently on the headboard of my bed are the following books….

1] ARCs:

* GRACELING by Kristin Cashore – completed, need to review. I was impressed with this debut novel and now need to dig up FIRE.

* NICK OF TIME by Ted Bell – halfway through. Enjoying immensely for the subject matter, even if it has some definite narrative flaws.

2] RE-READS:

* SOON I WILL BE INVINCIBLE by Austin Grossman

* THE GIRL IN A SWING by Richard Adams

* FANCIES AND GOODNIGHTS by John Collier

* FROM THE DUST RETURNED by Ray Bradbury

What’s on *your* nightstand, Gentle Readers?

I’ve got quite a lot of unread books piled up, just under 20 I think. Most of which I didn’t buy. Instead, I found them in trashcans, or in the city’s paper recycling box, or got them through swap groups. There’s a thrift store that, every weekend, puts out a box of used books free for the taking. Need I mention I drop by there weekly? 🙂

Right now, I’m reading PD James’s The Lighthouse. I have two of DelRey’s Robert E. Howard collections unread on the shelf: The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane and Kull – Exile of Atlantis. I have, on my unread shelf, two Alistair MacLean thrillers, a Batman novel, a novel about the life of Hannibal, a Raumpatrouille Orion novel, and some more mysteries and thrillers.
