Books, books, books!

Well, I am just overjoyed at the fact there is MORE snow in the forecast! YIPPEE....NOT. But that is not until Friday. One nice thing about a nice snowy day is the chance to stay in and read. I declared my New Year resolution to read more this year in the previous post. So far, so good. I have read FOUR books and am on my fifth. And out of that, only ONE was not so hot. Not bad enough to make me put it back on the library shelf, but I would not pick up any others in the series. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

But besides keeping track of my reading here for 2011, I joined Good Reads. This is a great site for all of you who read, and read alot. I figured instead of doing my reviews all over the place, this was the way to go. All of my books in one central location. Perfect. I put the link in the side bar ---> to the right. Follow my progress or join and "friend me" so I can see what you read too! Hopefully, this will be just like ravelry as a great aide for recommendations and keeping track of things!

My favorite book to date was "The Case of the Missing Servant" by Tarquin Hall. This new series is very reminiscent of the Mme. Ramotswe series by Alexander McCall Smith. The characters are charming and it was a very well crafted story giving you insight into modern life in India. The only bad thing about it (and it really is not all that bad) is that it makes you hungry for samosas and chana dal! I headed off to Trader Joe's for some! I even stopped at the library and picked up the second book in the series. So far, Mr. hall has only written two and I am sure I will be eagerly awaiting the next installment!

OK, I have spent enough time on the computer now. Off to get caught up on housework!
