Let it Snow!

Posted by: Maria Carpenter


Snell Library Friends (SLF), I hope you are all some place warm– perhaps under a blanket with a good read or in sunny Mexico drinking a cerveza. As for me I trekked home in the snow with my little black heels but luckily only fell down once, maybe twice. Am happy to report am now in bed with fluffy white cat, laptop, and a Sam Adams cherry wheat beer (an offering from my roommate– don’t want you to think that I would buy the stuff on my own– negro modela or an IPA for me thank you very much). So, wherever you are during this blizzard and over the holiday break, if you are looking for a good read I recommend Catfish and Mandala or The Last of Her Kind. Catfish is about a personal journey back to Vietnam as an adult after the author departed on a boat when he was 10 years old. Last of Her Kind is a novel that follows the friendship and heartache that occurs between two women as they experience the late sixties and beyond.

What are your recommended reads for a wintry day?

    Dear Librarian Editor, Why do you think anyone would care about what beer you like to drink?!!!

  2. Librarian Editor, December 13, 2007:

    I vote for PBR!

    Love Battlestar G. All of it!

    For me beer is for summer. Lately I’ve been drinking Limoncello (sp?). I crave that citrus taste in the dead of winter.

    And I’m reading “The punishment of virtue: inside Afghanistan after the Taliban” by former NPR correspondent (and my former classmate) Sarah Chayes who now lives and works in Afghanistan.

    I always like an adventure story on a snowy day. Currently, I’m reading The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman, which satisfies that requirement!

    I don’t know why but on stormy days I like to read a fluffy chick lit book. Something in the Sophie Kinsella or Marian Keyes range.

    On a wintry day I like to curl up with a good romance novel. I get so into the story and forget what’s going on in the outside world for a bit 🙂
