Booksie's Bookshelf, January 23, 2014

It's frigid here in North Carolina, so I've been spending my days reading and watching series on TV.  It's just too cold for my first love, swimming laps.  The pool will have to wait until the temperature is above freezing.  Till then, I'm jogging and doing the weight machines.  I just finished an impressive debut novel, Silk Harbor, from a new NC publisher, Old Harbour Press in Greenville, NC.  Here's the newest acquisitions:
