Books In Reserve

My friend and most excellent middle school librarian Jeannie Keddington introduced me to the concept of "a reserve pile"--a pile of books you KNOW you're going to love that you've put aside for a rainy day. Or a day when you've overdrawn at the bank or totaled your car or discovered that your identity has been stolen. The reserve pile is for the kind of day when you really, really, REALLY absolutely must escape into a fabulous novel.

Books currently in my reserve pile: SORCERY & CECELIA OR THE ENCHANTED CHOCOLATE POT by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer, GREEN GROWS THE CITY by Beverly Nichols, and PRINCE OF CLOUDS by Gianni Riotta.
