There will not be much in the way of blogging while I am away with my family.  From the Potomac to the Euphrates will return when I return.  In the meantime, I’ve put together a brief list of what “Team Cook” is reading over the holidays:

Steven (Team Cook, Captain) is reading “Paris 1919” by Margaret MacMillan.

Lauren Cook (Team Cook, Chairperson) is reading “Orphan Train,” by Christina Baker Kline.

Alex Brock (Team Cook, General Manager) is reading “The Good Soldiers,” by David Finkel.

Madelyn Cook (Team Cook, ball girl) is reading “Dancing Shoes,” by Noel Streatfeild.

Mia Cook (Team Cook, rookie) is reading “E-emergency” by Tom Lichtenheld and Ezra Fields-Meyer.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
