What's on My Nightstand, November

If it weren't for the 2 monthly link-ups at 5 Minutes for Books, I would be blogging even less frequently! I do plan to post more, but the subject of this Nightstand post explains why it hasn't been happening much over the last 6 weeks. It's Cybils time. As a Round I Middle Grade Fiction judge all of those books are on my list!

At this point, I've read over 60 books, but there are 143 on the list! I know I will not read all the books, and I'm not required too. I am part of an incredible panel, and at this point, over 100 of them have been read by 3 or more of the 7 panelists. So they are all being given a fair shake. But I would like to tackle at least 40 more before we deliberate in late December.

So my "Nightstand" has consisted of books everywhere.

Books in progress under my coffee table:

Recently received review copies on the shelves in my closet:

And most of all, a giant bag of library books:

There are some great books here, and I just need to get to reading!!

You can find out what other bloggers are reading each month on the 4th Tuesday of each month at What's on Your Nightstand at 5 Minutes for Books.

I agree! That's a whole lot of reading! In my opinion, though, you've got the best category for judging. ;)

Looks like you've got your work cut out for you! My nightstand is getting a bit intense, too - especially because there are piles on it, next to it on the floor, piled up in the bookshelf, and then two more stacks in my office downstairs!

Oh my, Jennifer. So many books. My eyes would be swimming. They are blessed to have you as a judge.

That would totally intemidate me! No way I could wade through those stacks! It would take me all year!

A book lovers dream although I am sure it does not always feel like a dream! Enjoy!
