November Reading List

5 Minutes for Books asks, "What's on Your Nightstand?"

Here's what's loaded on my iPad, ready for November bedtime reading:

I feel late to the party reading The Tiger's Wife, which was just nominated for a 2011 National Book Award. 

I didn't love Eugenides' last novel but understand this has a much different tone.

 I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I enjoy John Grisham novels when I'm in the mood for mindless easy reading.  Not all reading has to be thought-provoking, right?  Besides, I want to see if his depiction of "litigators" in any way resembles my former life or the lives of the many litigators I know and love.  I'm guessing...not.  :)

 Of course.

And speaking of books, please come back and visit the cul-de-sac on Tuesday, November 1 for a very special book giveaway announcement!  Happy Reading!


  1. Great list! I used to really enjoy John Grisham. I haven't read one in a while, but I did read Scott Turow's follow up to Presumed Innocent earlier this year and enjoyed it.

  2. My son enjoyed Grisham's children's book - can't think of the title offhand. I'm late to the party on The Tiger's Wife and The Marriage Plot books as well! Loving Steve Job's bio though.

    Looking forward to your book giveaway next week!

  3. You're the first person I've seen on the Nightstand list who is reading Steve Jobs! I'm intrigued but the waiting list at my library is HUGE! I hope it's good.

    Happy November reading!
