Book #2 ... Feeling a little insecure?

Pin It Okay, here it is. The lovely nightstand.

I TRIED to not straighten it up before taking a pic and found that I was completely incapable. I promise that all I did was straighten up the piles ... and maybe remove a toy or two ... and throw away a bit of trash that was up there. I did not add or remove any books. Do you see the problem? Thing is - some of them just can't go anywhere.

I go through spells where I read the photography books, then get overwhelmed and put them down for a while. There are a few homeschool books on there too, as I'm still in the planning phase of the 2010/11 school year. There are a couple of magazines and cookbooks because I'm always planning a menu.

Some of them CAN go though, which brings us to the next book.

So Long Insecurity: You've Been a Bad Friend to Us by Beth Moore

Mine is hardback with the dust jacket. Unfortunately I can't give you much of a review of this one. I was too insecure to read it. :-P I did read some of it. I have several Beth Moore books and I have loved them all. I'm certain that this one is fabulous as well. It was requiring more of a time and effort commitment than I was willing to make at the time I bought it. It's been sitting on my nightstand for several months now. I'm certain that I WILL want to read it at some point, at which time I will add it to my nook.

Same rules apply. If you're interested, leave me a comment. This is open until Tuesday night and I'll choose a winner on Wednesday morning. If you're local, I'll deliver it to you, if not, shipping is on me.

Oh ... and just a preview ... like Christian fiction? That's what's next. Possibly a seven volume set, and I know you can see one or two of them in the pics. ;)

I'm sorry to say, that at 40+ years old I still have insecurities. In fact, they seem to be increasing. Yikes! I would love to win your book. Thank you so much for offering it!

I very much enjoy reading your blog. I enjoy your mom perspective as well as your military wife perspective. I'm a Marine mom, and my son is headed to Afghanistan soon. It would be good to get some of my insecurities taken care of before I delve into that worrisome time!

Mel....what's a nook?

And I love Beth Moore, too. ;)

(And how in the world did you get into my house to take a picture of MY night stand with out me knowing? You're good.)

That is what my nightstand looked like up until today. I'm happy to say I cleared it out, donated a bunch of books, paperbackswapped the rest and only have a few there now. (I just got a sony Reader which means hopefully a cluttered nightstand is a thing of the past!)
