Snow Falling on Readers


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?

    I know exactly how you feel. We had severe snowfall back in December, and while it was fun for the first two days I was crawling up the walls by day four. Glad to know you are keeping busy with the reading. It's about the only thing one can do in weather like that!

    I'm still snowed/iced in with frozen pipes-- thank goodness I filled the tub and every pitcher before it all hit! I finished a sci-fi book and am working on Woman in White but my brain has been too groggy to focus on reading much-- been watching movies and playing games with my little boy and trying to stay warm!!

    No snow here, just gale force winds!

    At least you got some reading done! No snow where I am - just unusual 70-degree weather which will soon turn to wet and dreary I'm sure, just in time for my birthday...as it always does.
