Regardless of your football allegiance, which of my books should emerge victorious?
The Daring Ladies of Lowell by Kate Alcott
The Last Enchantments by Charles Finch
The Race Underground by Doug Most
Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen
This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash
The House of Memories by Monica McInerney
The Widow's Guide to Sex and Dating by Carole Radziwill
Only one of them can emerge victorious to be read to the accompanying noise of Seahawks and Broncos fans caring a lot more than I do about the outcome of the game. Then again, all of the books will eventually be winners and the same can't be said of both football teams today. Just another reason books are the best. ;-)
So leading up to today's game, my reading adventures have taken me all over. I went back to Yorkshire during Edwardian times to see what was becoming of the families dependent on the mines in the village of Netherwood. I watched as a displaced Southern belle learned to listen to her amazingly sensitive bees in matters of the heart. I traveled all over the world with writers chronicling their real life adventures. I went along as a young woman joined up to fight in the Civil War beside her husband. Where did your reading travels take you this past week?
