The New York Times Sunday Book Review has listed their choices for “The Best Book Covers for 2014”. Let’s face it, we often buy a book due to its cover, due to the fact it strikes some emotion in us, or we find it intriguing, or geometrically pleasing. To read their choices, along with the name of the designer, check out this link.

Check here, for their list of “The 10 Best Books of 2014“.

Good to Return

It is good to return to my blog. I have been on vacation, and before leaving, I decided I would stay away from blogging. It wasn’t difficult to do, within the environment surrounding me.

I had a fantastic time wandering the Pacific Coast Highway, between Big Sur and the Monterey Peninsula, in California. My senses were filled with magnificent scenery, seascapes, cliff overviews, hiking, eating, watching whales and otters, visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium, tasting my way through wine country, and so much more.

There are a few books I recommend for those of you who want to learn more about the California coast, and for those contemplating traveling the coast. I have read them all.

The Golden Shore: California’s Love Affair With the Sea

The Monterey Bay Shoreline Guide: The Monterey Bay Aquarium Series

Big Sur, Monterey Bay & Gold Coast Wine Country

Life in a California Mission

I finished reading: All the Light We Cannot Sea, by Anthony Doerr
