So far it doesn’t look like much…..but I think it’s supposed to get pretty bad. Charlotte has cancelled over 300 flights. I feel for those who’re stuck at the airport. The snow can come; I really don’t want the ice they’re predicting for later this afternoon, yuck!
Still, since it was a totally unproductive weekend (lots of little stuff), it will give me a chance to get caught up and to get something yummy cooking for this evening. Snow and cold outside, some hot comfort food inside, yeah….
Originally, I had intended to do a post about the books I’ve read so far this year. I’m trying to read at least one a month, and the new year weekend gave me a head start…..
is the fourth book in the Nicholas Flamel
series. I read this the first two days of the new year.
This is a great series and encompasses lots of mythological tales and characters, as well as historical people about whom legends and mysteries exist.
I’ve loved this entire series, but I must confess: I’m not the most patient person when reading a series. I want to read the whole shebang. Straight through. So I want this wrapped up!!!!!
I never would have made it reading Harry Potter if I hadn’t had the whole set from the get-go.
There are advantages to coming late to the ‘party.’
Did you know Nicholas Flamel was a real person?
I have several books started, but I just haven’t been able to get into them yet. I picked up The Gargoyle
at B & N last weekend and didn’t even open it until Friday. I would have had it finished by now, but it’s been one of those
weekends, and we were busy Saturday.
What can I say? It’s different, a story within a story, which can be boring.
However, this book is not boring. I’m completely hooked and, lately, that’s saying something.
It does contain some adult content, so be aware. It’s not played out as scenes; it’s simply stated as matter of fact and there’s no titillation. Instead, it’s a reflection of the main character. I don’t want to give anything away in case you pick it up.
I’m going to finish this today…..
I won Green Angel
in a contest hosted by Theresa Milstein
a while back. I was in school at the time and didn’t have a chance to read it. Now, with a snow day especially, it’s time!
Thank you, Theresa!!!
I couldn’t steal the image for Notes From Nadir

when I went to amazon.com, so I posted the contest picture. I was lucky enough to be one of the winners!!!
I hope to get to this one today, too.
Thank you, Lisa!!!
