What's on Your Nightstand, 2.24.09

I set small reading goals for February:

* Making Children Mind without Losing Yours by Dr. Kevin Leman.
* Something by A.A. Milne.
* The Ministry of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson.
* A review book for Thomas Nelson Publishing.
* Children's books with a focus on Valentine's Day, President's Day, Lincoln's birthday and Washington's birthday.

I'm using my Valentine's Date and Ben's birthday party as my excuses for failing to reach my reading goals this month.
*The Leman book didn't even make it off the shelf in the basement.
*I read a non-Pooh book by A.A. Milne and listened as my husband re-read the classic Pooh story to our children.
* I'm only halfway through the Clarkson book.
* I requested a book from Thomas Nelson but still haven't received it.
* I couldn't find any Valentine's books I liked but came home from the library with a huge stack of President books. Most of them were OK but none were so good I want to buy them.

*****************************************************

My reading goals for March are even smaller.

* Finish the Clarkson book.
* Read a Beatrix Potter book for the March Children's Classic carnival at 5 Minutes for Books.
* Read the Thomas Nelson review book when it finally arrives.

There is a very good reason for my reduced reading goal. Come back tomorrow and I'll tell you all about!

Thanks for reminding everyone about my very loose book club in March. We'll read The Mission of Motherhood together. I can't wait to hear your thoughts!
