It’s a few days late for resolutions–let’s hope that’s not an omen for the rest of the year–but it’s still the time for mulling over the coming year. So here’s to

Matilda was to stop snooping so as to prevent further stretching her neck. Rufus would practice calmness and so avoid accidental quill launchings, Alphonse promised to sit an hour a day to see the world from the same level as the rest of them, and Eustasia swore off the contents of open garbage cans, which gave her gas. Myra was grateful for the illusion that this Christmas was past and the air cleared for sailing into the future.


Happy New Year

Santa Reading

It’s time to get off the Internet and curl up with a book

—or a Kindle, Nook, Sony, Kobo or whatever.


To help, this blog will take a break until Friday, January 4, 2013

and offer two books for your  (or our loved ones) reading pleasure.

 The Inheritors by Judith Kirscht


 A mixed-race woman’s search for her roots

in an abandoned Chicago mansion threatens the first great love of her life.

 Nowhere Else To Go cover


(This one in paper only)

 A story from a college town during the turmoil of the Sixties.

The voices of a school principal, parents, and children whose lives

are caught in the vortex of the storm.

These may sound a little heavy for the holiday season,  but they will draw you in and keep you turning the pages.

The perfect antidote to multitasking fatigue.
