So, is anyone besides us cooped up inside and doing alot of reading?

Donna always gets a slew of paperbacks for Christmas (it's a tradition), and then enjoys a little bit of free time reading them (she's a FAST reader, has been doing a book a day at least!). She has been reading a series that may be interested to some of you - it's a mystery series, set in the late 1300's, and involved a Welsh man an herbal apothecary. Interested? Check out the Owen Archer series by Candace Robb!

I have been reading about FOOD (surprise, surprise!). Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver was on my "best books" list of 2007. So far in 2008 i am getting my mind blown (in a good way) by Living the GOod Life by Scott and Helen Nearing. COOL! Also, I am LOVING this book "Infused" - it's all about infusing herbs, spices, veggies, fruits and flowers to make really, REALLY fantasic - sounding flavored liquors. Expect future posts from me on THAT subject!!!

Any books any of you would like to recommend to us?
