Since I'm stuck at home, it seemed like a good time to do some online shopping! And what did I order? Something I'm getting seriously low on: books. The pile of books by my side of the bed is only two deep, and about 3 feet tall. Time to stock up!
I really do have plenty to read, but 3 of our favorite authors have new books out. John Grisham has The Appeal, Dean Koontz released The Darkest Evening of the Year (although I think that one has been out for a couple of months), and my favorite author has a new one, Duma Key.
Yep, Stephen King's new book is out, and amazingly enough, it's not set in Maine! I just read an article about him and his book in Time, and it seems that he and his wife are spending the winter in Florida. He joked about how it's the law that as you get a little older, you have to move to Florida. He said something that made me laugh: "Sixty's the new 50, and dead is the new alive." He does have a way with words, doesn't he? One of the things I've always loved about him--and I've been reading him since Carrie first came out--is his truly demented sense of humor. He's more than a little off the wall, and I kind of like that in a person.
The snow seems to have let up, and I saw the mail truck go by, so I suppose I'd better get out there and get it. While I'm out, I'll shovel us a little path to the garage. Ken will snow blow the driveway tomorrow. More later!
