I have a tendency to read two or more books at a time,(one on the coffe table, one for the bathtub,etc.) Am I alone in this habit? If not, whatcha got on the nightstand?

Have just finished 2 of Obamba's books and starting on the third. 'Dreams from My Father' is about where he came from and in 'The Audacity of Hope' he talks about the direction he would like to see the country going. A preview of things to come.

Just finished Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. After I read the book, I went to see the movie. Both were pretty good. Also working on Orson Scott Card's Memory of Earth series. Just finished Dark Prince by Christine Feehan, but didn't like that one as much as Twilight.

Weatherman...woman?..no..maybe I could convert my dreams of the tides into poetry... The Pacific Water lapping the shore Hypnotically drawing me into the tide I feel the coolness on my feet. Waves in and out Hypnotically drawing me into the tide I feel the coolness on my knees. Roar of the surf Hypnotically drawing me into the tide I feel the coolness on my waist. Never ending expansiveness Hypnotically drawing me into the tide I feel the coolness on my breast Rocking me gently Hypnotically drawing me into the tide I feel the coolness on my nose. One with the universe Hypnotically drawing me into the tide I feel no more.

At the moment... Maya Angelou Sigmund Freud 2008 Old Farmer's Almanac 2 novels All piled on the empty side of the bed. Most night I read parts of more than one - start or end with a poem or two.
