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

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.
