What are the books on your bedside table right now? Not what you want to be there, but what’s actually there. Unfortunately, the comboxes here don’t allow posting of photographs, but if you have a blog and can post a photo of your bedside table books, please do, and then post the blog link in the combox. I love seeing these things.
