What’s On Your Nightstand?

So what books are sitting next to my bed, to be read when I escape into the air-conditioning or just before I drift off to sleep at night? Well, this month it's a surprisingly restrained pile - I'm actually quite proud of myself. Sometimes it's towering! Here is my bedtime reading (from the top):

I Am Sustained by the Love of God - A little booklet I picked up for free at the Parliament of World Religions back in 2009. It is a collection of reflections and meditations on the Lessons of A Course in Miracles, and I find it remarkable. I read one reflection every night. OK, so I'm a new ager!

Time for Tea by Lindel Barker-Revell - Linda is Australia's tea-leaf reading expert, and a really lovely woman. She is also published under the same imprint as me, Inspired Living.

Rimbaud by Edmund White - Quite simply, Edmund White is one of our greatest living writers, and each of his books is perfect. I adored his wonderfully gossipy biography of Proust, and this one is just as good. I'd love to write like him.

The Tao Speaks 1 by Tsai Chih Chung - Tsai is a genius who translates the classics of the East into fabulous, but incredibly meaningful, comic strips. They make for perfect bedtime reading. This is his version of the Tao Te Ching.
