It is still chilly, yesterday felt positively autumnal, and if it weren't for the tiny shoots of green peeking from the lilac bushes, or the ever greening field across the street, you would have thought it was November. A very blustery day indeed.
Secretly, I am okay with the fact that winter is hanging on, just a bit. (guess it isn't a secret anymore...). I am still feeling a bit hibernatory (if it isn't a word, it should be). I have piles of books still to be read, and savored under a warm blanket with a cup of tea.
My current read: "One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd" by Jim Fergus. I picked it up on one of our travels, perhaps New Mexico? It is such an interesting (albeit fictional) story, that is far removed from the British mysteries I have been reading most of the winter.
I have a habit of collecting books, LOTS of books, whether it is at rummage sales or school book fairs-favorite authors, or authors I have never heard of. I have a very wide range of things to choose from in my library (feel free to come and borrow something!) and there are never enough hours in the day to dive between the pages and let my imagination take me around the world.
Reading is such an important part of my life, I MUST read before I can sleep. I have to read the newspaper each morning (please don't let them be completely replaced by the internet), and if for some reason I can't, my day just feels a bit off kilter.
What is your current read, or an old favorite you would like to share with me that I simply MUST add to my bookshelf?
