Thursday Feature: “Let’s Talk Books”

on October 24, 2019

Welcome friends and followers of “Bethie’s Place”, and the weekly feature, “Let’s Talk Books”! 😀  This week’s topic for discussion is…. drumroll please…. “What Books Are On The Nightstand? The Kindle? The TBR (To Be Read List)?

For me, the books on the nightstand (at the moment) are (in no particular order):

This Tender Land by William Kent Kruger
The Prayer Bible
Column of Fire by Ken Follett
5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins
How Happiness Happens by Max Lucado

There are approximately 200 books on the Kindle (a mix of fiction and nonfiction)and a long list of TBR books.

Okay, you know what my reading list looks like, so let me know about yours…. “Let’s Talk Books”!!! 😀

    Hi Ready Player One was last book I read by Ernest Clive. I tried reading Divergent 2 but got bored. How do you have time to read & blog?

      Hi Janice!
      Since February of 2014, I’ve been in and out of hospitals dealing with a serious illness which has left me bedridden until just recently. So, there really wasn’t much else to do but read, and I started blogging last December when a friend recommended it to quell my boredom and keep my spirits up.

    On my iPad amongst the million books I am currently reading 52 cups of coffee, warrior of the light, an introverts way (didn’t add the authors🙈)

  4. I love books. As a child I spent most of my days at the library. I loved the quiet, the heavy smooth oak chairs and big tables, the scent of the books – new and old. I spent so much time there I read every book in the children’s library on the basement level and several young adult and adult books. I started collecting books with my first Dr Seuss book that my mom bought me. I was hooked! Now I have them all over the house and in bookcases. My husband doesn’t understand the crazy need to own books as I can’t possibly read them all unless I live to be 130!

    My sudden verbosity now over, here’s what I’m reading:
    *The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
    *My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
    *Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty (a favorite author, along with Thrity Umrigar.

    And a couple more I can’t reach at this particular time.

    Sorry for being so very prolific!
