Weekly Book Recap #86

The past week--make that the month so far--has gone by at lightning speed.  The weather has stayed most sunny and warm, but the forecast is for more seasonable (cooler) days ahead, with warnings of overnight frost north and west of the city.  I've avoided sweaters and jackets thus far, but I know it's just a matter of time before I have to switch over my wardrobe and break out the jackets and boots. 

I'm not a fan of extreme temperatures, and I'm bracing myself for another winter.  Each year I dread the season a little bit more, hoping for fewer snow storms and an early spring.  Thank goodness for great books, which take my mind off the weather.

On to the weekly recap . . . .
