With three days left in the month, we've now had more snow in this December than any December in the past 62 years! Friday morning, we woke up to this drift on our patio. Miss H and friend built a tunnel through and then a cave inside big enough for them both to sit in. It was the one good thing, for her, about missing Christmas with the family. For me, the one good thing was how very relaxing it was. And the amount of time I found to read!
With everyone putting together year end recaps, I thought I could knock mine out in no time. Ha! I have my top five books always listed on the side of my blog but narrowing down a top ten is giving me fits. So that's a post for another day. I am enjoying reading everyone else's top ten lists as well as the lists from all of the major publications. I found Entertainment Weekly's top ten list of the year to be interesting. I would have expected to find more fluff on this list so I was surprised to find literary favs such as "Lit: A Memoir" by Mary Karr, "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett, and "Let The Great World Spin" by Colum McCann.
I'm off to read while I watch PBS's documentary about Louisa May Alcott. Have I mentioned how much I love her books? I do; I love them! I've got my National Book Award winner still to finish so I can complete that challenge before year end!
