Welcome to another Booking Through Thursday, our event that allows us to share bookish thoughts.
Here’s today’s prompt:
It’s the depth of winter here where I live right now … what books do you like to read when it’s snowy and white? What books do you read to evoke a real feeling of winter (good or bad)?
It never gets snowy or white here, but rain and fog surround us, and it’s cold enough! Judging from last month’s choices, as well as the ones I’ve read this month, some of my favorites of the season include lush books that span decades; good mysteries, both the thriller kind and the cozies; a few memoirs; and anything that involves curling up with a cup of tea or coffee. And the book, of course.
