Top 8 of '08, with Guest Blogger Fiona Bayrock

Along with Deborah Hodge, Fiona Bayrock is here today representing the non-fiction writers in our midst. I think 'prolific' must be Fiona's middle name, as she has published at least fourteen books and many, MANY articles on subjects as wide-ranging as fish farts (yep -- you heard that right!) and icebergs.

Fiona also writes a regular blog, Books 'n Rocks, featuring terrific non-fiction books for kids.

When I asked her to participate as a guest blogger, Fiona sent me the following whimsical list...

My Eight Favourite Winter Things:

Lazy snowflakes—when looking out the window feels like I'm living in a snow

The rhythm of boots crunching and squeaking during a winter walk.

Making a snow angel.

Bright nights.

Cozying under a quilt with a cuppa and good book next to the wood stove.

Northern Lights.

Frosty eyelashes.

The drip, drip, drip promise of spring.

Thanks for taking part, Fiona!
