Just One More Chapter...
For many booklovers, it's not a good day without the chance to unwind with a book before bed. We're notorious for the leaning towers of books on our nightstands or tucked under our pillow. Our booksellers are no exception. Here's what our they have on hand right now.
"After I've cleared off all the stuffed animals my kids have left behind, I've got a mess of stuff in various stages of being read--Motherhood by Sheila Heti, We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby, The Incendiaries by R. O. Kwon. What I read depends on how exhausted I am at day's end, and, of course my kids (5 & 8) and I have the books we are enjoying. Right now that includes Adam Gidwitz's Creature of the Pines, The BFG, and some Notebook of Doom." —Rachel
"Currently on my nightstand is an omnibus copy of The Lord of the Rings, R. A. Salvatore's Child of a Mad God, which I finished reading but haven't brought myself to shelve yet. And, finally, a copy of Norse Mythology, which I am presently re-reading." —Jodie
"I am currently reading Death's End and Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist. But there are many more books that I keep close by. Nightstand isn't the placement however, as I keep them in an old Pepsi crate that I found at a thrift shop, which is better for transporting my pile of 10-20 books whever my car and I go." —Andrew
"I generally have one physical book and one audiobook in the works at all times. Right now, the physical book is Smart Choices, which lives primarily on my nightstand as I read it mostly at night and on the weekends. I listen to my audiobook while I'm going about my chores and such at home. In the evenings, I'll set the sleep timer function on the app and listen to a few minutes more before nodding off. I just finished Tony and Susan, and started in on The Life List of Adrian Mandrick." —Caitlin
"I like to keep dark things next to my bed. Currently it's copies of Circe by Madeline Miller, Dreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories by Kelly Barnhill, and Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures & Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs by Paul Koudounaris." —Anthony
