No Particular Thoughts, Random Ramblings

It's been a while since I've talked to myself here - been busy with the business of reading during the last month or so. Here in New England it's been frigid and snowy and icy and it's an adventure driving to and from work. When I get home at night the sweats and fuzzy slippers are a welcoming warmth and all I have energy for is sitting in the easy chair with a hot coffee at hand and a good book.

And I've been doing a lot of reading as I've challenged myself to read more new-to-me authors this year (as I posted at one of the discussion boards at PaperBackSwap), and I've probably read a dozen new authors so far, some aren't worth reading again, some were buried treasures and I'm on a glom for their backlist. I still haven't started on the Harlequin-Silhouette Challenge for 2009 (my bad, though the books ARE here on my computer table and some of the authors will be crossovers to my New-To-Me challenge at PBS). A too-fer, who can resist?

When the weather was at its worst I went to work to early so I could take my time on the slippery streets and I've gotten into the habit now - it's nice to get there about an hour ahead of time, relax in the kitchen with a Dunkin Great One or hot lemon tea and read quietly for 30 minutes or more - read at home or read at work. Reading time is reading time, wherever you are.

But this weekend we changed the clocks, it's staying lighter later and soon all the rooms in the house can be opened up once the heat is turned off - it'll be a fine time to get serious about doing more book cataloguing and sorting.

Happy spring-is-just-around-the-corner, fellow readers. Read on.....
