My mother always sat every night in her own little corner of the house in a comfortable chair with her feet up on a hassock and read. My father worked until 11:00 PM. So in the evenings she sat and devoured books.
Because of her example, I always have several books going at the same time.
Here is my current bedside reading list:
Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Pierre-Ambrois-Francois Choderlos de Laclos (Dangerous Liaisons)
Web of Darkness by Marion Zimmer Bradley (My favorite fantasy book. Part 2 of The Fall of Atlantis. I read it once a year.)
Elegance: A Novel by Kathleen Tessaro (a novel inspired by the next book)
A Guide to Elegance: For Every Woman Who Wants to Be Well and Properly Dressed on All Occasions by Genevieve Antoine Dariaux (a classic guide for women)
Better than Beauty: A Guide to Charm by H Valentine (a fun book along the same lines)
