For the past two years I have put together Christmas and winter themed reading lists and shared them here. Last year was Welcoming Winter which was simply links to my Christmas and Winter reading lists at Goodreads. The year before was Stories for the Season with short reviews of eight of our favorite (at the time) Christmas stories.
I seem to have set some kind of precedent for myself so I'm at it for a third year. And truly, reading Christmas stories together (any stories really) is one of my cherished activities of the season, it's only fitting I write about that, again.
This month we are changing our daily routine a bit and moving reading time to late afternoon. A time of tea, books, snuggles and candles, just as the sun is setting. This really is a lovely, lovely way to say goodbye to the afternoon and in some small way appreciate the darkening of days as we approach the winter solstice.
I have so many books saved at goodreads that I decided to go easy and use their widget instead of listing them all here myself.
If Christmas stories aren't your thing (some of these books do have major Christian themes obviously) you might appreciate these general winter reads.
What are your favorite books to read together this time of year?
