Why would you apologize for what you read for pleasure? Every book read for pleasure should be celebrated. And novels that celebrate love, commitment, relationships, making relationships work -- why isn't that something to be respected? - Nora Roberts

Pneumonia + winter = comfort reads only.(not a review, personal)
So I don't have much for you again today. I've been doing comfort reads only. Jane Eyre. The first four books of Laurie R. King's Beekeeper's Apprentice series. Helene Hanff's books. All Creatures Great and Small (have to watch that one, though, 'cause laughing will set off a coughing spell). The Lord Peter stories; I never get tired of Gaudy Night.
We'll be fine, but it may be a few days before I have something new to write about. The days are getting longer. I'm hearing birdsong in the mornings. Surely the snow and ice will go and we'll see the sun and spring will come. I know there was once a year without a summer, but we've had one every year of my life, and I'm counting on it: apple blossoms, lilacs, daffodils, tulips, kids jumping rope and playing jacks (yes, they still do that around these parts), the smell of the soil as the frost comes out of it. Air that doesn't hurt your face. It'll get here.
