It’s a rainy Free-Reading Friday here in southern Idaho. What a perfect time to sit by the fire with a cup of tea and a good book.
Earlier today my husband and I had errands in Boise, so we hit the holiday book sale at the public library. We spent an enjoyable while browsing the shelves in search of bargains. As we left with our purchases, my husband remarked, “I guess we don’t need to hit Barnes and Noble this trip.”
My guess is we’re set for reading material through December. It would be a long, cold winter without something to read.
That doesn’t mean we won’t buy more books. It’s what we do. It’s nearly time to cull the shelves and donate a few books to make room for the new ones. I might even clear off the top of the piano.
I just finished reading Origin by Dan Brown. Set in Spain, it is typical Brown–a murder early in the plot, Robert Langdon teaming up with a beautiful woman to solve the mystery, symbols for Langdon to decipher, religious controversy, crazy twists throughout. Artificial intelligence plays a part as well. In all, it was a quick, enjoyable read, and provided me with some food for thought.
Next on my reading list is Trail of Tears: The Rise and Fall of the Cherokee Nation by John Ehle.
Enjoy your Free-Reading Friday!
