The View From Monday - February 16, 2015

Happy Presidents Day to those in the US. This 3rd Monday in February used to be a celebration of (George) Washington's Birthday though not his actual birth date (February 22nd). It has been expanded to include Lincoln's Birthday (February 12th) in some places or other Presidents in other places. I imagine it's still called Washington's Birthday somewhere in the US. It is a Federal holiday and school's (and government offices) are closed here. Since it's -5° F and feels like -21° F with the wind chill I'm sure everyone is happy that they don't have to go outside. It's a terrific day for reading (if I didn't have to shovel...).

There are two Debuts this week:

Find Me by Laura van den Berg;


Houswitch by Katie Schickel.

From formerly featured Debut Author Challenge Authors:
