Now that it's all snowy and wintery outside, my very favorite thing to do is to light a fire (preferably in a fireplace) and cuddle up under a blanket with a warm drink and (most important ingredient) a good book. My favorite books to do this with are often fantasies or science fiction (The Dark is Rising
, The Magicians
, and A Wrinkle in Time
are perfect examples.) I really enjoy anything long and involved with a completely unique world that I can get completely lost in. (Even better if the unique world exists just beneath our own reality.) It's super-extra fun if the book takes place in winter. (Think along the lines of City of Thieves
, and The Golden Compass
.) That way, I can feel all lucky and superior to the characters freezing their tails off.
In addition to the books posted here, we’ve got a display in the HUB of more “Books to Keep You Warm.” Come in and grab some great titles to take home and make your own magical toasty story cocoon. You’ll just need to provide your own fire, blanket, and cocoa/cider/coffee.
How about all of you? What books keep you warm when the snow is falling all around? Keep the convo going on our Facebook page, send us a Tweet, or just stop by the HUB to chat books.
