I added several titles to my collection in January. The thing about weeding ten before buying one? Whatever. That lasted all of minutes. I did sell a bag of books this month though I definitely bought more than one book. Apart from Ripley Under Ground , I b...

Sunday Salon: Snow Days
A snowy, lazy weekend. We got socked in yesterday but I'm hoping we'll make it outside today. The last time NYC got a "big" snowstorm it was 6 inches and my husband and I practically had midtown to ourselves, everyone was so panicked. This time we got our g...

So two busy weeks are behind me, and I've got one quiet one before my birthday week. Hooray! Quiet week! This week I accomplished several things. I basted two quilts, one for hand quilting and one for machine quilting. I attended two book club meetings- one...

American Idol Rant
Do you watch American Idol ? I've been a regular viewer for the run of the show and I'm definitely sad to see it end. It's boring sometimes, predictable sometimes, and just dumb sometimes, but it also can be very entertaining and I enjoy the crash course in...

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I finished Fates & Furies , which I may or may not review here. I can't decide. Part of the problem is I can't decide if I liked it or not. Last week I started reading The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared , by Jonas Jonasso...
