What's On Your Nightstand?

5 Minutes for Books sponsors a monthly event called What's on Your Nightstand? I haven't participated in a few months but I'm finally back this month. I have quite an assortment on my nightstand (really, the corner of my bureau) at the moment and I have promised I would read through them before taking any more out of the library! (I broke that promise this week, after 3 weeks. oh well... :) )

So here they are:

-Hannah's Helping Hands by Jean Van Leeuwen. This is actually a chapter book that I picked up at the town tag sale that looked interesting. It takes place back in the Revolutionary War-time period.
-Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I never finsihed reading it from when it was one of the Classics Bookclub books awhile back.
-A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Another tag sale book. One of those "I know I should read this someday" books.
-Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. A Christmas present from my husband.
-Elizabeth and Mary by Jane Dunn. For the Tudor Reading Challenge.
-Widow of the South by Robert Hicks. To feed into my fascination with the Civil War era.

Now that I've actually listed these somewhere, maybe it will hold me accountable! (Don't count on it!!!)
