We’re heading into March and February is over at last. What are you reading this week, this month, to get you through the end of winter (which in New England has been good old-fashioned cold and snowy)?
Edith: I got four new cozies in the mail and have started with Julie Hyzy’s Home of the Braised in her fabulous White House Chef series. And can’t wait to read the other three, too!
Liz: I’m a little behind in my reading, but in addition to Lucy’s and Sheila’s mentioned above, looking forward to digging into Murder, She Barked by Krista Davis and Graveyard of Memories by Barry Eisler.
Barb: I’m reading Bertie Plays the Blues by Alexander McCall Smith. I love his gentle optimism and laugh out loud humor. I’m a fan of all the series, No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, the Sunday Philosophy Club series, the Professor Von Igelfeld Entertainments, but most of all the 44 Scotland Street series and the adventures of poor Bertie, stuck with an overbearing mother. Perfect reading for the start of March. I’ve seen McCall Smith a couple of times, at the Boston Book Festival and the Key West Literary Seminar, and he cracks himself up, giggling at his own words as he reads. So charming.
Julie: I am so behind in my reading! Aside from the book I mentioned yesterday (Jab Jab Jab Right Hook), and the four books pictured above (all on my Kindle), I have downloaded A Tough Nut to Kill by Elizabeth Lee. This is a new series, and I noticed Facebook friends promoting it. I thought I’d give it a try–I love finding new series to love.
Readers: What’s up next on your bedside table or Kindle or i-thing?
