I have never participated in "What's on Your Nightstand?" before, but I have listed the books I was reading on my blog before. But, my dear friend, Jesse
To participate in this party we're supposed to share about why we chose our books and when we sneak in reading. I currently read in little snippets for the most part when I can snag a few moments during the day. So, here's what I'm reading.
I got a new MacBook and need to learn the nuances between this and my old PC. Nuff said.
Single income household. Want to learn as much as I can about ways to get out of debt and save some major fundage. I really liked this book. It's a great base that made me realize I really need to dig deeper into the world of investing. Nuff said.
I homeschool my 10 year old son and we are currently reading this classic together. We're really enjoying it - only have a few chapters left to go. We went to the library tonight and rented the DVD of it that stars Pierce Brosnan to watch as soon as we finish it because we're enjoying it so much. I opted not to get the video version starring Jackie Chan. Although I like him, the reviews I read said that it barely held to the book. Nuff said.
I like Amish fiction. I figured I'd also like Amish reality. I do. Nuff said.
My husband and I dream of owning acreage with chickens, cows and goats one day - off grid and all. Since we don't live like that at this point, we put out a big garden and I make the most of this time as a learning experience for when we get to live the total dream. Since we've moved to this house with a yard I've learned to can, make our soap and stuff like that. These types of books really help. This seems to be a really good primer in the basics. Nuff said.
This book is similar to the last one, but tends to be more detailed with how to build different sorts of shelter, solar panels, ponds and things like that. It would be good if you're going to do that stuff yourself instead of hire a professional.
Alright, so that's what's on my nightstand at the moment.
Happy Tuesday, y'all!
