BTT for 5/27

Easy one.

What books do you have next to your bed right now? How about other places in the house? What are you reading?

i don't keep one by the bedside as i usually just go to sleep. but, overall i'm reading:
  1. The Passage by Justin Cronin- and ERC and i've only got 150 pages left. depending on how busy it is at work i should finish this in the next couple days.
  2. The Devil and Sherlock Holmes by David Grann- non-fiction short stories. each chapter is a different story and not bad so far. I should also finish this book over the weekend.
  3. Boneshaker by Cherie Priest- just got it back from the library and i'm about halfway through. it's just slow going for me but i do want to finish it off.

also, i've got a few from the library i've not started yet.

  1. The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
  2. The Children's Book by AS Byatt
  3. The Education of a British-protected Child by Chinua Achebe- nonfiction for the POC challenge
  4. The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens

so that's my list as of today. I am really hoping to finish up the Cronin book today or maybe tomorrow. It's been pretty good.

I realized i forgot to answer part of the question! My books are on two bookcases in my living room, stacked on my desk, lined up on my windowsill in the bedroom, a couple B gave me to read on the dining room table, and in a couple boxes in the bedroom too! I've got 131 to read according to my Librarything page. Why the hell am i on the web? I need to be reading! :)
