What's on My Nightstand — September

I started blogging at the end of July - not pretty. However, I am still working on it. Before actually setting up my "blog" if you wanna call it that, I started to do some surfing - long, long, long story short, when I came across 5 Minutes for Mom and the sister sites, I was in love. Thank you Kristen at We at THAT Family. I love your blog, read it every day.

This Carnival (
don't know why it's called that) sounded like a lot of fun and I am so excited to be able to participate. Thank you
Jennifer for helping figure out the Linky thing, cause even thought I consider myself capable in this area, whoa! I see I could brush up on my skills.

I hope to give more than I get from this experience and I can already see that I am going to get a lot.

So here goes... Every Fourth Tuesday of the month over at
5 Minutes for Books you can share what you are reading and give your own book reviews. This has only been going on since July, so click here to get more details if you like to learn more about - what it's all about.

Here is what I am reading and hope to get started reading.

The Power of Now (Eckhart Tolle) In May I took on a part time job at a book store, just for something to do outside of the house. And get back into what I love - books. When a co-worker asked me what types of books I preferred to read, I said that I like to read mostly self help, cook books and authors like Jack Canfield, Steven Covey.... And she responded with something like, so you like Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth. And I said, uh who? Your gasping, I'm sure. Truth is, I hadn't really picked up a book of any type for... years. {double gasp!} I did say above to get back into... SO, I figured, before I read the new one, I should read the first one. Breathe.

The Gods of Newport (John Jakes) I was at the pharmacy one evening waiting on a prescription, so I thought I do some browsing. Landed over a their bargain book section and I found a book that I'd been wanting to get. Got it, and because the sign said that I could get two for $10, I searched for something that looked good and not the norm for me. I've read into the second chapter and I can tell already, this will be a challenge. We'll see how it goes.

Women & Money (Suze Orman) I've been wanting to get my hands on this book for some time and finally did. My hubby and I don't communicate too well when it comes to money, so here I go again with self-help. This one I have not started yet.

The Promise of a New Day (Karen Casey and Martha Vanceburg) This is a book of daily meditations. Each day you read a page worth of inspiration and it's dated for each day of the year.

Conquest of Mind (Eknath Easwaran) From the back of the book, "Nothing can be more important that being able to choose the way we think - our feelings, aspirations, and desires, the way we view our world and ourselves. Mastery of the mind opens avenues of hope. It means that we can begin to reshape our life and character, rebuild relationships, thrive on the stress of daily living, become kind of the person we want ourselves to be."

I'd love to provide links to the books so you can see the cover and read other reviews and such - does it matter what site I link to? Would linking to Amazon or Barnes & Noble be ok or is that kind of thing forbidden? Thanks!

I love the hows and whys of you coming to each book. I would love to work at a bookstore!

Yes, you can link to the page at amazon or B&N. It's common, and they don't discourage it, because it brings them business! You can even sign on as an associate at amazon or B&N (see the front page), and make a few pennies if someone buys it based on your link!

Oh, and I don't really know why it's called a carnival either, but it just is. Maybe because there are lots of attractions??
