Winter is for Reading

by | Jan 16, 2019

It’s cold outside! Pour yourself a warm mug of tea…or a cold, crisp glass of wine…and stay in with a great book.

This is what’s on my reading list for the next couple months. So far, The Sparsholt Affair and Between the World and Me have been completed. The Blue Zones Solution… is nearly done and then I’m reaching for Reader Come Home…
