On My Nightstand

Wow! I haven’t updated this thing in two years! Well, here’s what’s on the nightstand.

This update is July 23, 2012; the previous one was July 31, 2010.

Here’s what’s currently on my nightstand:

My Kindle, about 73% of the way through Clive James’ Cultural Amnesia

Collected Works – Flannery O’Connor

Gilead – Marilynne Robinson

Julius Caesar – Shakespeare

The Lovely Horrible Stuff – Eddie Campbell

Milk & Cheese: Dairy Products Gone Bad – Evan Dorkin

The Early History of Rome – Titus Livy

The Rings of Saturn – W.G. Sebald

In Defense of the Republic – Marcus Tullius Cicero

Collected Poems – Philip Larkin

The Leopard – Giuseppe Di Lampedusa

I imagine The Leopard will be a permanent fixture, as I plan on returning to that one many times in the years ahead.

For giggles, here’s what was on my nightstand two years ago, when I last updated this page:

Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up – Bob Colacello

My Kindle, open to the Lee Server’s bio of Robert Mitchum, Baby, I Dont Care

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase – Joan Aiken (it was something I read as a kid, so I ordered one to see if it’s worth foisting off on my nieces)

Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 4 – Bryan Lee O’Malley

The Playwright – Daren White and Eddie Campbell

Fly Fishing with Darth Vader – Matt Labash

Schulz and Peanuts – David Michaelis

The Comics Journal, #300

Oh, and there’s still a talking 40-Year-Old Virgin figure/doll, a gift from a pal who can’t keep it at home (kids) or work (harassment guidelines)

So what books are on your nightstand?
