The Book Tower

Upon looking at my nightstand, my husband remarks: "Are you trying to reach the ceiling?" referring to my stack of books on my nightstand, which now looked like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I flashed him my leave me alone look and decided that maybe I should take a few moments to go through the stack.

I decided to sort them into three piles: 1 - books I have read and need to put away; 2 - books I have started and never finished, but have every intention of finishing and 3 - books that if I had nothing but time to read, I would, but I don't, so they are going back to the bookshelf for the time being. Here are the results of the sort:
The books that I have recently finished

(the middle book is Gift Of The Sea)

The books that I WILL finish

Books that I would like to read, but . . .

As I was sorting the books, my 12 year-old comes into the room and looks at the new stack on the nightstand and says: "these are boring books. I wouldn't read them." Gotta love children.

"Under the Tuscan Sun" you really ought to read for pure relaxation -- the film is fun in its own way, but it's a totally different experience than the book.
