On The Nightstand

4:24 PM

And on the coffee table.  This past Tuesday I had shoulder surgery and spent a lot of time relaxing (and sleeping) in the recliner.  These are the book that are within reach of the chair.  Corrine came home from Oma and Papa's house on Wednesday and we spent the rest of the week reading.  She (for the most part) was aware of mama's boo-boo so we sat and read.  These are her current faves.  We read We're Going on a Bear Hunt over and over.  And over.  And over.  I tried to hide it under the stack on the coffee table.  Didn't work.  I'm surprised should can't read it to me yet! 
 This is mama's stack of books.  I just finished the Maeve Binchy book A Week in Winter.  She was such a great story teller.  I love the way she weaves together the lives of her characters.  She died last summer shortly after she finished this book.   I picked up the James Patterson book at the library as well.  It's the newest book in the Women's Murder Club series.  It should be a fairly fast read.  I like the short chapters...makes for easy bed time reading.  Shadow Divers is a true story of two scuba dives who found a WWII German u-boat off the coast of New Jersey.  Can't wait to read that one.
What are you reading?  Anything I should add to my ever expanding "To Read" shelf?
