The love of learning,the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
As much as I love reading on the beach in the summer, there is really nothing better than snuggling up with a good book in the winter. Yesterday, I stopped by the Strand Bookstore in the newly renovated Club Monaco store on lower Fifth Avenue, who is also having a big sale by the way, where I picked Speedboat by Renata Adler. It’s a reprint of the original that was published 1971 with an afterword by Guy Trebay. Buying new books is probably the reason why I still haven’t finished The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt which was my goal this holiday vacation.
Very curious to hear what you all are reading this winter.
