January 2013 BOM


HAPPY 2013 DEAR  READERS,

I hope this finds you all happy and healthy and recovered from the holiday season.  It was a fun time for us, especially when we returned to Stowe for our 18 inch snowstorm on Wednesday into Thursday.  Since then it has been a daily view of living inside a snow globe.  Unfortunately the temperatures turned extremely cold last Thursday (-19) but we enjoy the weather all the same. 

January will bring us a Book of the Month that so many people have recommended to me.   Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn will be the selection.
Gone Girl: A Novel



In the meantime, I will tell you I am reading The Passage by Justin Cronin and I can hardly put it down.  Now, I have already told Maria that she wouldn’t like this book because it is apocalyptic and full of violence and other creatures.  It is reminiscent of Steven King’s The Stand except the cataclysm was man made. 

All through December, along with the BOM’s, I struggled to read In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larsen.   I am not proud that I only made it halfway through the book and decided that I would leave it alone for a while.  It will remain on my nightstand for the time being. 

Happy Reading,

Barbara
