How are all of you, after the Monster Blizzard? We're in the Midwest, and had a ton of snow and up to 50mph winds, so the drifts are amazing. Between the house and our horse barn there were stretches of drifts almost up to my hips. Until we got things plowed out, making it the barn and back was a challenge! But it was all beautiful, too--everything blanketed in pristine white. And this time, we didn't even lose our electricity! It happens quite a lot, out in the country, but I just kept on chugging at the computer, making progress on my current manuscript, and then took some time to just sit and enjoy watching the weather.
And that got me thinking about a question for all of you. If you knew you were going to be stranded somewhere for a few days and could bring five books along, what titles would they be?
