Books on my nightstand

They aren’t actually on my nightstand. I’m kind of a fast reader, and if I take a book to read in bed, I’m always negotiating with myself as in “Well, there are only 150 pages left, so I’ll be asleep by 1:30” and then I hate myself in the morning. But “Books on my little twisty table in the living room” is missing that certain je ne sais quoi. Anyway, here’s what I’m currently reading:

The Almost Nearly Perfect People: Behind the Myth of the Scandinavian Utopia by Michael Booth

Not quite a travelogue (my favorite) but it sounds pretty interesting


A Man Called Ove: A Novel by Fredrik Backman

A Swedish novel to go with the aforementioned book.


The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout

A book group pick for March.

How to Be Danish: A Journey to the Cultural Heart of Denmark by Patrick Kingsley

Almost done with this quick read about Denmark. We hope to host a Danish exchange student next school year.

Cabin Porn: Inspiration for Your Quiet Place Somewhere by Zach Klein

Really, does this need any explanation? It’s for the cabin I don’t yet own.

Homeward Bound by Emily Matchar

But that’s what I have to disclose.
