Booking Through Thursday

A weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading.

No, no … this isn’t the question you’re probably expecting, that asks about your winter reading habits.

What I want to know today is … what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody Winter?

(Personally, “A Winters Tale” by Mark Helprin pretty much nails this for me, and “Smilla’s Sense of Snow” was right up there…)

And, Merry Christmas, everyone–whether you celebrate or not!

    What a timely book question. I haven’t read A Winter’s Tale but it sounds good. My first Booking through Thursday is now up.

    I own two copies of Winter’s Tale, though haven’t finished the book yet–been meaning to send that 2nd copy to my sister in NY.

    I know it doesn’t take place in winter, exclusively, but my vote goes to Little Women. Christmas won’t be Christmas without any snow, and all —

    so merry and happy to all!

    It’s never officially winter or Christmas without. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and The Night Before Christmas. (I know it’s really just a poem, but I have little kids, so our version is a whole book.) Hope you had a WONDERFUL Christmas.
