The View From Monday - March 13, 2017

Happy Monday. So it's the middle of March (more or less) and we're going to be hit with a Nor'easter tomorrow. The three main stations in the state are predicting 15"-25", 10"-20" and either 18"-24" and 12"-18" (depending on where you are in the state) - we seem to be on the line between the last 2 according to the last TV station. So I predict we may get a foot of snow at least where I live. I also predict no school tomorrow. Winter is not ready to give up. Now on to books...

There are 5 debuts this week:

The Return by Joseph Helmreich;

Himself by Jess Kidd;

Eggshells by Caitriona Lally;

The Hour of Daydreams by Renee Macalino Rutledge;


The Vine That Ate the South by J.D. Wilkes.
