What's on my nightstand?

What's On Your Nightstand

I am one day too late, but anyway, joining this for next time as it is on the fourth Tuesday of each month - with the firm project of taking a picture of it.

Just for fun (I won't take any picture now), my nightstand, currently a brown cardboard box, has these books on it:

- Tracy Chevalier, The Lady and the Unicorn [currently reading]
- Robert Tallant, Voodoo in New Orleans [currently reading]
- Y.G. Ovsiyenko, Russian for beginners [working through]
- Steinunn Sigurdardóttir, Le Cheval Soleil [started, but not continuing]
- J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye [not started, waiting to bring back to library as no time to finish it until moving out]

Constantly changing places is inherent to my life. Books have always been steady friends which I could bump into wherever I was all over the world.
Stumbling upon Kaminer's German stories of "Die Reise nach Trulala" in Reykjavík's city library is as moving as meeting the Icelandic sagas in Boston's Borders.
To see a book again, that I've read thousands of kilometers away makes me smile "Hey I know you.." and shake hands by thumbing through it for a while.
