Recent Reads

1. Where Women Create
An interesting view inside the places some women create.

2. Best Rail Trails New England
So many trails, so little time. Have decided that the Cape Cold trail is on the list after the kiddies go back to school - way less traffic at nearby campground.

3. Drawing Lab for Mixed Media Artists
A little gem of a book. Wonderful ideas to spark creativity.

4. The Postmistress
Loved the idea of this book - what happens when people do not deliver mail during a time there were few other ways to communicate? The war reporting and descriptions were done quite well, but the execution of the story left much to be desired - the characters were not well developed.

5. Darkness, Take My Hand
You know that deja vu feeling you get that you have read a book before? Well, had that while reading this well written book. The gory details makes it not for the faint-of-heart, but so well done.

6. Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures
With a title like that, who could resist? But this non-fiction book deviated from the theme and is more the author's memoir. Really enjoyed the heist stories, but in the end quit the book. Just do not care enough to read about this guy.
