What's on your nightstand?

Besides my ongoing seminary lesson prep, here's what else I'm reading:

Just Finished:
The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean - I picked this up last month at the Costco in Spokane - Alex read it while we were on vacation, then I got a chance. It's a non-fiction memoir of the Periodic Table of the Elements.  Sort of.  I really enjoyed it - and my grasp of chemistry is not particularly firm.  Two thumbs up.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  Another Costco purchase.  I liked this book a lot, in spite of the high body count.
Bachelor's Galore by Essie Summers. Despite a promising title, not one of my favorites by Essie.
A Little Moonlight by Betty Neels. Reviewed last Thursday on The Uncrushable Jersey Dress.

Next up:
The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey by Candice Millard - Steve talked me into getting this today...again at Costco.
An Ideal Wife by Betty Neels.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.  Book Two of The Hunger Games.  I borrowed this from Keira.

What are you reading?

Just finished all the Hunger Games, have to review Ring in a Teacup this week, and am reading the book of Jeremiah from the Bible really intensively.

I'm 80% of the way done with The Great Influenza. I started two months ago. I wish I read faster and had (or made) more time to read.

Finished Roses and Champagne by La Neels and just finished Tall Pine Lake by Garlock (Not her best mystery romance... still trying to figure out what she sees in the hero).
