Call it Snowmaggedon, Snowpocalypse, SnO-M-G, or any other type of Blizzaster - whatever cutesy moniker you pin on it did not make it any less of an annoying or inconvenient weather phenomena. Schools canceled, work canceled and the general advisory was not to leave the house on Wednesday unless absolutely necessary. And after the necessary shoveling was done (digging or tunneling might be a better word...) staying inside all day really did seem a pleasant option. Warm clothes, comfy blankets, hot tea, and of course - good books!
I suppose I have Chicagoland's third largest snowfall in history to thank/blame for my recent reading progress. Not only did I finish Preston & Child's Fever Dream (a read aloud with my husband), but I made extensive progress through Romancing Miss Brontë by Juliet Gael as well as jumping back into a bit of The Count of Monte Cristo on my Kindle.
Were you home-bound by severe weather recently? Did you use it as an excuse to get some extra reading done?
