Winter Reading Already?


Where does the time go when it flies away?  Don’t know, but it’s good to gather here.

I’m too lazy this year to plan, make a stack of my books and photograph them, so I’ll just list (a few pages into some of these & almost through Gilbert’s book):

  1.  What’s Lying Around the House (Off the Shelves)
    • A Poetry Handbook by Mary Oliver
    • The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St. Clair
    • And the Word by Cid Corman
    • Insomia by Marina Benjamin
    • Xeixa:  Fourteen Catalan Poets translated by Marlon Fick & Francisca Esteve
  2.  Audiobooks Lying in the Passenger Seat of My Car
    • Translation by Kate Atkinson
    • The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert
    • What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

  1. Hi Teri! Happy to see you 🙂 Your list looks amazing- I have read a few of them… am really interested in the Kate Atkinson book, she is so good. Also, a friend read the Color book, and she loved it. Will look forward to your review!

    1. I am happy to see you here, too, Meredith. I must bear down on the Kate Atkinson audiobook, because it cannot be renewed. I had to wait through a long line to get it & there is a long line behind me. She is a much-admired writer. I may have to take her out of the car and into the house to listen. All in all I think that’s a better option than always taking the long way home. Much better for the environment, not to mention the budget!


  2. Teri! I loved The Secret Lives of Color. Found it a good read when I had limited time. Those short histories, very cool.

    1. Julie! A big warm welcome to you, my friend. I’m holding out hope that you will compose some centos with your book titles & share them with us.

      That’s a good point about the short history format of Secret Lives. I’ve put it on my bedside table, for reading myself to sleep. A slight snag is that
      the orange light bulb in the lamp (helps w/sleep) will do strange things to the colors, but I can go back to look at them come morning.

      Happy reading!
