Each pile has its own story.
These are my bedside stacks. Many have been there for quite a while. I am not currently reading any of them, but I like to keep them close.
This is the stack on top of the bedside table. The top book was recommended by my principal, but I have not read it yet. Then be different is a book that I have started and not finished. Finally, From Norvelt to Nowhere is an ARC I received at NCTE. I loved the first one, but have not read this one yet.
This is the stack on the bottom shelf of the bedside table. It contains various arc's and two books I plan to review.
The cluttered kitchen counter usually has a stack or two. Right now it holds two books my daughter insisted she must have at the Scholastic Book Fair and a book about Greek Mythology by Ken Jennings (from Jeopardy).
What books are in your stacks friends?
