Top 10 Tuesday - My TBR Stack

1. Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010 Philip just finished this and he's talking about it ALL THE TIME, so I guess I better read it so we can discuss it properly.

2.Patrick Henry: First Among Patriots: This one both my dad and my husband have read and they keep telling me I have to read it. One of these days I'll get around to it...

3.The Accidental Creative: How to Be Brilliant at a Moment's Notice I can't tell you how long this has been in my stack. It keeps getting pushed down but I really do want to read it.

4.All in One Basket by Deborah Mitford, Duchess of Devonshire. Continuing my fascination with all things Mitford Sisters related.

5.A Watershed Year: A Novel This one was passed on to me by my mom. Haven't gotten around to it yet.

6.The Pity Of War: Explaining World War I by Niall Ferguson. 462 pages of not so light reading.

7.Your Child's Writing Life: How to Inspire Confidence, Creativity, and Skill at Every Age This one has been in the stack for a few weeks.

8.Bismarck and Germany: 1862-1890 Doesn't everyone have a book about Bismarck and German unification in their TBR stack?

9.A Presumption of Death: A New Lord Peter Wimsey/Harriet Vane Mystery I love Sayer's creation, Peter Wimsey. And I enjoy the continuation of the series by Jill Paton Walsh because she is a talented writer in her own right and treats these characters well.

10.The Candy Bombers: The Untold Story of the Berlin Airlift and America's Finest Hour I saw a glowing review of this somewhere around the 'webs. It sounds like a book I would enjoy.

So, what's in your stack? Any suggestions for things I should add to my own?

Doesn't everyone have a book about Bismark in their TBR? I can honestly say no, but I've had some doozy Top Ten Tuesdays before, so I feel you on this!

Happy reading!

I need to add a disclaimer to the book "Mom" gave you to read. I'm not sure you'll enjoy the book, and I'm saying that without adding my own critique of the plot, etc. What I want you to experience is the writing style. Just thought as a future author you might want to study the author's mechanics of descriptive writing.

Should you consider this a late homeschool reading assignment? Hahahahaha!
