a few christmas books :D

as most of my friends know, books are probably one of my favorite things! there is zero likelihood i will ever trade the great pleasure and experience of reading a physical volume for an electronic version (whatever the attendant bells and whistles attached) thereof. i also love libraries, book stores, and book sales :D

christmas generally brings me a treasure trove of new books (and book store gift cards). this year i had 4 fantastic titles waiting for me under the tree. in no particular order: keith richard's "life," edmund morris' "colonel roosevelt," "little girl blue: the life of karen carpenter," and tom clancy's "dead or alive." i've just started the keith richard's book, and look forward to reading the other three. the clancy book will be my first fiction in years!

thanks to gift cards, i also ordered the new anthony bourdain book, "medium raw: a bloody valentine to the world of food and the people who cook." i just finished rereading his classic, "kitchen confidential," in the week before christmas, so this will be a great follow-up! and i also ordered "reagan: the hollywood years," and suze rotolo's "freewheelin' time" a memoir of greenwich village in the sixties."

i've got some great reading on deck for the next few months :D
