Bedside Reading

I'm always curious to know what other people read at night. Usually I am a one book girl, devoted to a single story because generally I like whatever I'm reading that much. (Sidenote-books get three chapters before I'm out. Never could get into "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.")

My tune is changing, possibly because the novel of the bunch has been read before and I'm in more anticipation for the movie.

At work, I'm asked to employ graphic design skills that I do not have, so I figured it was time to seek out some help. Enter the assistance of our go-to designers at work, the Decaro's, who have graciously let me borrow this book-Thinking with Type. It's great for my (remedial) skill level and written effectively, but unfortunately, has been the recipient of least attention.

Glamour. My monthly mail indulgence. I usually skim it all in one sitting, reading the short articles and Q&A, and then go back one more time for the editorials. Then it's round-filed. No magazine hoarded here, and why I buy magazine subscriptions on Amazon for $2 a year.

My newest addition comes through my thoughtful mother-in-law, the gardening guru. 52 Weeks in the California Garden will be my bible take two piles of dirt from drab to fab. Let's hope it can instill some holy works to get me seeing more green and less brown.

The book to the left is Scott's: "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." I may start that once the aforementioned are complete.
What are you reading?
