Reading, my favorite winter sport!


At this time of year when I will look for reasons NOT to go outside into the cold, I embrace my love of reading more than ever.  That said, if you are like-minded and looking for some good book recommendations, I’ve decided to share a few of my best reads from the last year and some old favorites.  “Read on” (pun intended)
