Winter Cold

I realized I'm more tolerant of cold weather leading up to Christmas and New Year's.  Now that both of those holidays have happened, I'm ready for it to warm up and I find that I've become much more impatient for the arrival of spring.

Favorite Books of 2014

I didn't read nearly as much as I normally read in a year this past year, so it feels like cheating to have a top ten.  Instead I'll just pick a few favorites.

The Rosie Project by Graeme C. Simsion

Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan

It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper

The 100-year-old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by  Jonas Jonasson

Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise by Ruth Reichl

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (and other concerns) by Mindy Kaling


Books by Kaling, Jonasson and Vizzini include swearing (including the F-word).  Books by Simsion, McCahan and Vizzini include some mild sexual discussion.
