Booksie's Shelves, March 24, 2018

It's the dregs of winter and I'm tired of cold and miserable weather.  We are supposed to get our final shot of rain, sleet or snow tonight into tomorrow and I'm hoping for rain.  In other news, my basketball team lost in the March Madness but we did manage to beat our arch-rivals twice this year so we had a pretty successful season.  I always hate seeing the seniors move on and end their college careers.  I don't follow any summer sports, so sports are done until August when football starts back up.  I had planned to attend the book festival in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend.  But when I realised it was going to be cold and rainy I decided I just wasn't into stomping around in the mess and stayed home.  Maybe I'll make it there next year.  Here's the books that have come through the door lately:
