Kim's Picks

Don't we all just love to read! I find that I'm a bit fickle when it comes to genre and tend to read several books at once. So, in addition to fiction, my moods swing towards great mystery (turns out I'm a huge Anglophile and stories set between the great wars seem to mark an era of choice), sometimes to nonfiction (I love travel stories and memoir), and sometimes I'm keeping up with my daughters and reading what's on their nightstands. Below you'll find an eclectic list of recent favorites.
