What book(s) are on your nightstand?
Now I know this used to be popular a few years ago, but I really am wondering what books people read here.
Perhaps include a photo, or just a list of books on your nightstand, or what you are currently reading.
I think it will be very enlightening for all.

For me it is currently:
Stephen Hawking: Brief History of Time (reread)
Melville: Moby Dick
What mad pursuits
Delizia (history of food in Italy)
Various books on art and antiques.

I do believe that by s and flagging this thead and sharing our reading, we can learn a lot from each other, and even find interesting books to read.

I just finished a couple of Bill Bryson books that I enjoyed due to his rather dry humor. *A Short History of Nearly Everything and The Mother Tongue were loads of fun. I am finally getting around to the Stieg Larsson's Girl... books. I usually enjoy juicy novels more

its a collection of letters written by the 17th century japanese buddhist monk takuan soho on swordsmanship to musashi miyamoto ,
very insightful and applicable in many areas in life today .
one of the few books I consider as a must have.

many of my books are obscure medieval texts or 17th 18th century novels .
