Books on the nightstand

Someone asked me the other day what books I have on my nightstand. Seems like a good topic for a quick post, doesn’t require much thought, just have to remember what’s there. Hmmm…well, I’ve only got about half an hour before I have to leave the coffee shop, so I’ll have to give an abbreviated list. ;)

First, the Bibles.

  • A paperback copy of the Tanakh (Torah, Nevi’im, Ketuvim, Jewish Publication Society),
  • NAB (paperbacks and the illustrated leather edition that I got for $5 from an outlet),
  • New Testament, Confraternity edition,
  • the RSV CE (Ignatius Catholic Edition, leather, zipper),
  • RSV SCE (Second Catholic Edition, leather),
  • RSV SCE NT and Psalms (Ignatius SCE, leather),
  • RSV (given to me when I was a kid in the Methodist church).

And now for the other books. Oy. Well, here goes.

That took longer than I thought it would…and that’s not a complete list. Just wait til I list the books I’m carrying with me in my car! Heh. ;)

Update, May 15: I added the links today. I’ve been building my library for years so some of these titles are out-of-print; but you might find copies at Catholic bookstores or online.


About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!
