what's on YOUR nightstand?


What are you reading right now?

I was playing around with my new computer last week and discovered the webcam. After posting a few silly photos, my sister-in-law commented on the 'crazy bunch of books' behind me in the shot. 
That pile was on my bedside table. 

 Some of these are just favorites, read more than once, lovely to look at. 
You can see that many of them have a food theme. Imagine that! 
I'm contemplating which one to read next...
I'm leaning toward one that will be my very first Halliburton, The Royal Road to Romance. Inside, the endpaper is a map and has a bookplate from a previous owner, with a little handwritten note.
I'm always a sucker for a map...









 On the flyleaf, there is a photo of the author standing in front of the Taj Mahal.
I brought this lovely old book home from the Booklady Bookstore at the strong urging of The Housewife... we both have issues with leaving a truly fabulous book somewhere, without a loving home. 
We're sort of like the Humane Society for books instead of dogs.

Have a cozy weekend!
