A friend reminded me that the Northeast blackout of 2003 happened ten years ago. My parents lost power in northeast Ohio, and I was a long way away scheduled to fly home and completely panicked that I wouldn’t make it home (I did). Several tubs of ice cream were eaten, several games of Scrabble played, several novels read, and luckily, that was the worst of it for us.
So, I wonder: when the lights go out, what’s the book you reach for in candlelight?
(Mine is The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay)
