Why do we buy a book that we really want to read, and then keep it on the shelf, unread, sometimes for years? We ask ourselves that question in segment one.
Then, in celebration of February's Open That Bottle night. But instead of opening a bottle (of wine), we are opening books that we have saved for some special occasion. The occasion is now. Ann finally reads Barbara Kingsolver's The Bean Trees, and Michael dives into The Book Thief, asking himself why he waited so long to read this fantastic book.
Speaking of The Book Thief, there's a great video of the author, Marcus Zusak, from a Good Morning America appearance. We can't embed the video in this post, but if you click on the video image, below, it will take you to the link where you can watch it.The Frozen Thames by Helen Humphreys and The Brother Gardeners by Andrea Wulf. Both are great reads, and we hope you enjoy them!
