A Wintry Mix of Books

December 22nd, 2009 by

snowflakeWhat better way to spend a cold, snowy day than inside, curled up with a good book? Well, if you ask Karen, the only thing better is to have a good book and a mug of rich, creamy hot cocoa. If you ask Nancy, she would want a good book and a robot companion. To each her own…

Anyway… of course, the common factor is a good book. So here are some good books for winter (in no particular order):

  1. Miracles on Maple Hill by Virginia Sorenson (Karen’s pick)
  2. The Long Winter by by Laura Ingalls Wilder (Nancy’s pick)
  3. The Winter Room by Gary Paulsen
  4. Tracks in the Snow by Lucy Jane Bledsoe
  5. Beardance by Will Hobbs
  6. Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan
  7. The Willows in Winter by William Horwood
  8. The Winter of Red Snow: The Revolutionary War Diary of Abigail Jane Stewart, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, 1777 (Dear America) by Kristiana Gregory
  9. Maroo of the Winter Caves by Ann Turnbull
  10. On Winter’s Wind by Patricia Hermes
  11. The Call of the Wild by Jack London

If you’ve read any of these, send in your book review. Or send in a review of your winter book!

UPDATE 1/12/10: We revealed the answer to our Winter Mystery Book Theater in the “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” Podcast, so take a listen if you want to know the answer. Or just tune in if you want to hear Karen go a little crazy trying to define “winter.” Seriously, we had to edit it down.
