Every year at Christmas, I look forward to new books. I’ve already enjoyed a few and still have more on the bedside table to carry me through the winter. Here, then, are five questions about Winter Reading.
1. If you received books as holiday presents, how many and what were they?
It was a disappointing year on the book front, as I had hinted about several titles, which family members sought, but did not find. #1 Son found a book that I am very much looking forward to reading about Paul, which is pictured in the sidebar.
2. Did you buy any for yourself, and if so what are the titles?
I took my Christmas check from the church’s nursery school to the bookstore! I came away with the other books in my sidebar.
3. Have you read any of them yet? What’s next on your list?
I’ve been enjoying both books of poetry (Heaney and Oliver). #1 Son loaned me Son of a Witch, by Gregory Maguire, and that’s going to leapfrog over the other fiction to be read first, so we can talk about it.
4. Do you have a favorite place to read a new book? And does the weather have an impact on that choice?
I like to read on the living room couch. Whatever the weather, I like my legs covered if I’m lying down to read. We have a fleece throw on the couch for that purpose. The problem with reading there is the potential for interruption, so I’m often found reading in bed (see below.)
5. Does reading in bed make you sleepy?
Yes. But I do read there. I probably read better there, in fact, since it is quieter, right up until the moment I fall asleep.
