Carrie's Book Picks

My reading jumps between thick novels (historical fiction, classics, beloved authors) and other—essays, poetry, autobiographies, contemporary fiction, travel narratives, art, and children's books. I like the occasional mystery too, particularly if it involves a clever protagonist and a strong cup of tea.
