Today I'm grateful for books --stacks and stacks of them all over the house mean hours of reading pleasure. I read from many different genres from historical fiction to police procedurals. Especially fond of Scandinavian crime fiction from Sweden's Stieg Larsson (Girl with Dragon Tattoo series) to Iceland's Arnaldur Indridason (Inspector Erlendur series). Click on mosaic middle row to see some of the Nordic Noir that I read last year and favorite authors. Also, when I discover new--for me--authors I like to read everything they have written. Right now I'm working on Daniel Silva's novels about Gabriel Allon, Israeli spymaster and art restorer. To date, I've read about 100 books in 2013.
Until a few months ago I ordered books from Amazon. The UPS guys made regular stops at Summit Court with those Amazon boxes. Then I discovered our excellent public library. Now I keep a running lists of books on order. About the only message that I like getting on the answering machine is "This is the Louisville Free Public Library. You have four items on hold. Please pick up as soon as possible." On my way!
Finally, you can tell just how much we love books around here. Instead of a man cave, Chet has a book cave! He loves to snooze under this bookstack.
