Pat's Picks

I am one of the lucky people who likes to go to work.  Being surrounded by books and book people makes me happy.  My reading diet leans toward literary fiction and I have a particular fondness for well developed characters and beautiful writing.  I dip into non-fiction sometimes too.  I'll read anything by Erik Larson and Candice Millard, and I have an appetite for biography and memoirs especially with a food theme.  I also enjoy travel writing - even though I'm not going anywhere soon.

 Olive Kitteridge is back and I couldn't be happier to see her.  I laughed, I cried, I cringed. This book will speak especially to women of a certain age.  Brilliant.
