Books and stuff

On a rainy day there's nothing like curling up in a cozy big chair with a good book. There are shelves in my living room and my reading chair is in a quiet corner facing them, with a nice big window covered in English Ivy to look out and watch the birds and rain. I have another chair where I like to spin and crochet. A different place for every task!

I finished reading Linda Howard's Open Season yesterday. Fun book with a quiet little librarian that decided to change her life and found excitement and love. I know the romance genre has gotten a bad rap lately but the women writing the current books are good! Funny, complicated, dramatic; these are books with strong women characters. The women writing them are clever and entertaining, and some of them cross into women's lit without any problem. Linda Howard, Jennifer Crusie; there are some good contemporary romance writers out there. I'm not ashamed to say I read them!

I've managed to do more than read today; corresponded with some great people; worked on web pages and uploading books and slipped in a little time to spin and crochet. Going out tonight with friend Kym; always nice despite the rain.
