Books to Read When You Are Snowbound

Yesterday was Groundhog Day, and Punxsutawney Phil saw no shadow –  Spring is around the corner – maybe.

Authors I can cozy up to – whatever the weather…


Elizabeth Berg –  The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted: And Other Small Acts of Liberation –  a book of short essays.  The title essay is the first and funniest, but they will all give you a good laugh and permission to enjoy the comfort you need – whether or not you can get out.

Catherine Coulter –  historical romances: usually a tall handsome Duke who pursues and eventually marries a feisty heroine.  Any title will do – they are pretty much the same –  but Rosehaven tops the list.
