Light reading is good. I always grab a Danielle Steele when I travel.
Just finished re-reading The Stone Diaries
by Canadian Carole Shields, an excellent read.
When I was away, I read The Boleyn Inheritance
which tied in well with The Tudors series that I watched in the fall.
I also read Along Came A Spider
, a sort of thriller/detective novel.
Not sure what 2009 will bring to my bookshelf but I did get some Chapters gift cards so......definitely will not buy diet books or cookbooks!
