PAWLING, N.Y. -- Cold weather is the perfect time for cozying up with a book, either one you get yourself or one you are gifted with.
Max Weber, Assistant Manager of The Book Cove in Pawling has his favorites and offers the following ideas of what may be "hot" this holiday season.
- "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" by George R. Martin : This takes place in the "Game of Thrones" universe and so is nice for those who enjoy that kind of genre.
- "M Train" by Patti Smith: This latest autobiorgraphy by Smith is great because, as Weber said, "she's a living legend," and lived an interesting life. The book has gotten a lot of buzz and positive press.
- After You by Jojo Moyes: This is a sequel to her first book, "Me Before You," and a great book club choice.
- "Audrey at Home: Memories of My Mother's Kitchen" by Luca Dotti: Dotti serves up his mother’s recipes along with pictures and anecdotes rarely seen before. the penna a la vodka is amazing, said Weber, who cooked it himself. "It's fun to make something Audrey Hepburn made," he said.
- "Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes"by Rick Riordan : This oversized illustrated book is rich with Greek mythology and written in a language accessible -- and interesting -- to young adults.
