“Sleep is good and books are better.”  George R.R. Martin
And I intend to enjoy plenty of both over winter break. 

But first, here's a look back at the books I read in 2017.
What did you read this year? What are you looking forward to reading?

French Friday: La Tour Eiffel sous la neige

« La neige possède ce secret de rendre au coeur en un souffle la joie naïve... » ~ Antonine Maillet

Yes, I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, 
but I'm also dreaming of Paris in 2013 when it snowed 8" 
and I took these photos with an iPhone 5.

Winter Morning

"In the rush of early morning,
When the sun burns through the gray,
And the wintry world lies waiting
For the glory of the day..."
