Today as I pulled up to Barnes and Noble for my weekly Bible Study the thought went through my head..."I'm going to be spending a bunch of money here today..." The temperature was 1 degree outside. It just felt like a book buying day. Ever have one of those? Despite piles of to-be-read books awaiting attention at home?
So, by the end of the morning I walked out with 3 new books: Canada by Richard Ford, Roots of the Olive Tree by Courtney Miller Santo, and The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. I guess that reading, and even the anticipation of reading is my winter comfort.
Oh, okay...so I also bought a half-price tin of peanut brittle and a half-price jigsaw puzzle.
