First Spring Read
Finally…Spring has sprung! It’s the first really nice, sunny warm day since…well, since last Fall, actually. Warm enough to take a long walk, soak in some rays…almost warm enough to don the ol’ shorts and sneaks and hit the tennis courts. Almost, not quite. But the sun this afternoon has melted away the last vestiges of snow and has started to coax budding crocus from the ground. It is now streaming in through the window where I now sit at my laptop…the warmth feels good on my face as, finally, after nearly a month a half away…I try to compose a blog entry.

With spring finally here, there will be no more curling up by the fire with a good book for me. Not for a long time. Most of my reading will be on the deck or by the pool. Come on, warm weather! Bring it on…I am ready!

However, speaking of a good book by the fire…I did read an interesting, quirky novel during a particularly wintry day in February that sparked and sparkled. What Burns Away, a debut novel by emerging author Melissa Falcon Field, which I had the good fortunate to read and review for www.authorexposure.com. It was just posted today, as a matter of fact…and as I re-read what I wrote, I was struck by how much I really enjoyed it, even if it brought me out of my comfort zone – much like Gone Girl did, written in the same vein, tone, and tenor.

After a hiatus of a few weeks to be reconstructed, the AE site is now up and reasonably running. Please take a moment to visit and read my comments. I think you’ll be intrigued enough to add Field’s literary endeavor to your Spring/Summer reading list. Even if you do enjoy it not by the warmth of a blazing fire, but on the sun-filled decks of a pool.
