too cold to be outside
Here on Long Island, it's utterly freezing, way too cold to be outside. Today, let's brew up some Yorkshire Gold tea and visit a few of my favourite bookish blogs.
Book-Wyrm-Knits, is where Nicole reviews books, writes about writing, knits, and shows pictures of her very adorable kittehs.
Donna, What you think on grows , writes meditations that flow from the daily, and the really gorgeous she just finished knitting.
Melanie, The Indextrious Reader, is a fellow librarian who writes about books books books with gusto, intelligence, and an energetic love of reading.
dovegreyreaderscribbles writes (does not scribble!) and leads her readers to gems by Anne Bronte, Susan Hill, Sarah Waters, and (darn her!) books that US Amazon won't have for months.
The Overdecorated Bookcase, is Inkslinger's repository of insatiable bookishness and reviews, and whose taste in music is eerily near my own. (Rodrigo's guitar concerto, Bach cello suites, Dvorak, and Glenn Gould playing Brahms. I'm there, dude.)
Daphne's Somewhere I have never traveled includes photos of chickpea cutlets and insane gingerbread cookies, invitations to begin to read the Fingersmith books -- and a spot-on rant about The Holidays that I wish I had written. (Brava!)
If you visit these bookwomen, tell them teabird sent you!
** A special thank-you to Carrie of Nomadreader, my secret pal in the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. She chose April & Oliver by Tess Callahan for me, a fabulous choice, worthy of the to-be librarian she is! She also sent the softest bamboo yarn and bamboo needles. Thank you, Carrie!
