It is another cold, grayish weekend in our neck of the woods. A little snow. A little wind. It is winter.
My second favorite place to be is a library. First is home of course! Rows of books. Rows of adventures, knowledge, and life. Rows of opportunities. Knowing we had a ‘down’ weekend ahead, this week I stopped by to browse. I can never just walk into a library and come out with nothing. It is not in my genes.
I was in a biography mood for some reason. Maybe it was because last weekend I final saw Lincoln. Who knows. I go through reading phases. One summer I read biographies on every single first lady except for Polk. Still looking for a good one for her. Another summer I fancied myself Russian. I cleared the library shelves of Russian authors. Then I was looking for books set in Italy. See, phases!
I found treasures!!! From Mary Todd Lincoln (different one than the one I read a couple of summers ago), Wallis Simpson, Valerie Plame, to a book called My Berlin Kitchen, I have reading material for a week! I also could not resist Julia. Who can resist her???
Now the question is which one do I start with first?
