Here's a sample of what's on my nightstand.
The House that is Our Own by O. Douglas. I felt compelled to read this after reading a review at Leaves and Pages. Plus, most of the Canadian literature I've read has been very good. I had to go to Amazon.UK to find a copy.
Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion by Elizabeth L. Cline. I hate the way clothes have become disposable; how stores like Forever 21 or H&M will have bins of $6 tee shirts that will only clutter up our lives. Far better to have an edited wardrobe of high-quality pieces.
What Was Lost by Catherine O'Flynn. I can't remember what prompted me to add this to my book list, so I'm looking forward to a nice surprise.
Slipstream by Elizabeth Jane Howard. This is the memoir of the author of the Cazalet Chronicles. I am reading it now and I know that when I finish, I am going to want to tell you all about it. *Yesterday, I heard that Elizabeth Jane Howard has died at age 90.
Home Cooking by Laurie Colwin. I've read this before, but it's so good, it's time for a re-read.
Ultrametabolism by Mark Hyman. Because my sister told me to read it. I am feeling the urge to do another diet book roundup post.
Also, on my virtual nightstand, aka the library hold list are The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and Americanah by Chimananda Ngozi Adichie. I can't wait to read The Goldfinch and I have been on the list since forever. I'm now up to number six, with over 200 people in line behind me. Americanah, I am going to read for the Derfwad Manor book club. There are only two people ahead of me. I don't mind waiting for books, because there are always plenty of other things to read.
