Matt What a lovely little list!


message 8: by Rats (new)

Rats  McKinley Here's the advice Patton Oswalt gave to those who suffer from Seasonal Activated Depression(if you haven't already read his post): "Read something Russian. Remind your depression that you have access to ancient, arctic gloom-blasts, and that if you can't make it leave your head, you can sure as shit frighten it into being a polite guest until the snow melts."


message 9: by Jo Ann (new)

Jo Ann Nice list! So many good choices.


message 10: by Booklovinglady (last edited Jan 11, 2015 01:48AM) (new)

Booklovinglady I love to read books by Charles Dickens as well as most Russian authors during winter, especially the ones who wrote classics, like Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Somehow those books seem to fit better when the snow is falling :-)


message 11: by Sylvia (new)

Sylvia Add The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. Magical novel and
perfect for winter reading.

Crow Lake by Mary Lawson is another perfect book for
winter reading.

Booklovinglady @Scott
Don't promote your own book like that, as it is not nice!!!
