Rainy Day Reading

With only a few precious weeks before Christmas, I thought I would share a few of my favorites from the bookshelf and a few I would like to add (that’s your queue Trevor). These are all books I refer to often and have enjoyed reading more than once or twice… or thrice. Hopefully some of you will find a good read in your stockings this year or even choose to share with someone you love.
