Reading for snowstorms

During the record-breaking Valentine's 2003 weekend storm, I read memoirs of folks sailing around the world. It made me feel warm. THIS storm (that finished last night a bit before 5pm) was almost as bad as Valentine's 2003. Not quite there, though. I had on hand:
  • Douglas Preston's Impact
  • Charles Stross' Family Trade
  • (both by Macmillan Publishing, they of the very public eBook spat with Amazon)
  • Jasper Fforde's Shades of Grey - which reminds me of a satire of 1984. Darker than his usual work.
  • Emily Giffin's Love the One You're With - this one comes out soon. The protagonist runs into her first love and starts to wonder What If?
  • A collection of snippets from the mystery publisher Soho - called the Soho Sampler. VERY good stuff.
So what did YOU read? And what have you prepared for the next snowstorm (Wednesday)?
