Booking It

By Misty Harris

It's spring - but it still feels like winter. Unless you are into winter sports (skiing, snow boarding, tubing, snow fights, etc.) chances are you are indoors more often than not.  If so, what are you doing? Crafting? Cooking? Entertaining? Perhaps you're reading or looking for something to read. I asked WNED staffers what's in their book pile of must reads and here's what they suggested! So dust off your library card or jump on Amazon and check out these books!
