Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I was so fortunate to get to spend a lot of time with my family, and a little less fortunate to come down with strep throat (along with the rest of my family). Anyhow, Brassell General Hospital ensured we all spent a lot of time together.
I have been reading a number of great books. I am longing to go on a trip around the world again, and I truly enjoyed Dyan Sheldon’s On the Road Reluctantly, along with Craig Nelson’s hilarious Let’s Get Lost. I find myself addicted to anything written by Malcolm Gladwell (Blink, The Tipping Point) and got a kick out of Live From New York by Tom Shales and James A. Miller (a history of Saturday Night Live). I’ve also been keeping busy with reading a ton of young adult books that publishers have been sending me (yes, middle school boys may be the toughest audience to interest in reading…but a number of good titles are coming out: stay tuned).
Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
Have a wonderful January, and enjoy your books!
