Be thinking about... books... and film
I'm feeling a little better but I'm staying close to home today to rest. It seems I have a cold. Where did that come from?
It is almost time for another book recommendation post. If you want an idea of what I'm writing about, you can click on the Warm and Cozy Book Recommendations icon (the cozy chair and kitty) on the sidebar. It takes you to the list I put together from your recommendations awhile back.
This time, instead of just the books having warm and cozy scenes, I'm asking for a list of books that make you warm and cozy inside. Perfectly in time for cooler weather for many of us. :)
Like so many of you, I found wonderful new books from suggestions (and the gift of books from those who had an "extra", in which I found lovely authors to search for at book sales).
It doesn't matter if they were already listed in the last recommendations post. For a matter of fact, I hope we cover all of those and many more. I had so many e-mails from people telling me they printed out the recommendations and kept the list with them.
This post will coincide with a blog break while I am traveling. It is good to take a break once in awhile. Throw in New England in October, beloved family, and meeting friends... it is just what is needed for almost two weeks. When my daughter told me Sally Clarkson was speaking in Hartford and invited me to come out... how could I say no?
The recommendations post will give more information and it will be posted this Thursday night. It will stay up and be available for you to come back to the entire time I'm away.
I know the last time, many of us thought of another book or movie we wish we'd added. This will give plenty of opportunity to come back and add more suggestions.
Oh, yes... we will once again be asking for your favorite warm and cozy movies, too.
All I ask is that all book and film recommendations be such that young ladies could read or watch them without embarrassment.
What are your favorites? What fiction and nonfiction books and films make your heart sing? What author speaks your language?
Be thinking about them for Thursday's post (not this one). :)
