Like any good literary nerd, I keep two stacks of books on my bedside table. The first is a stack of my current reads and can range anywhere from 3-9 (or more). It is a constantly rotating stack of fiction, teacher books, children’s literature, etc. The second is a stack of favorites that have taken up permanent residence both on my table and in my soul. They are the books that I reach for when I need inspiration or a good literary fix. They are works I crave, words I need. My current stack includes short stories by Pam Houston and Neil Gaiman, poetry (because every bed side table should have poetry), and Lincoln. Because Lincoln. The Tim Burton poems are my favorite and I have been known to bust them out to read aloud to overnight guests, which is only sometimes appropriate. Oh, and on top I keep a Sonic Screwdriver. Obviously.
