On Thursdays I take time to step back and just share my thoughts on things related to reading. Sometimes these may be my thoughts or thoughts I've gotten from my students. It depends on the Thursday. It depends on the topic. It depends on the week!
Today I'm thinking a lot about winter.
You see I live in a state that gets snow. A lot of snow. And it gets cold. Really cold. About February I'm done with it all. I don't want snow anymore. I don't want cold anymore. I'm tired of bundling up myself and three kids when we leave for school each day. I want summer and tanktops!
With this attitude towards winter I know I have one of two choices.
1. I can stay negative and crab everytime I look and go outside
2. I can find something positive about winter
I pick #2.
And what I choose to focus on is the amount of reading I get done because (for me) it's too cold to do anything else! And I decided to troll through Barnes and Noble online and find some books with pretty "winter" or "snow" covers.
Here's what I found. I have to admit all the blues look pretty together! Now I haven't read most of these, but right now I'm just into the prettiness of them. Yes I'm judging a book by it's cover :) But since it's helping me hate winter less, I'm ok with that.
Now it's time for you to share. If you love winter WHY? If you don't, what do you do to make it better? OR What "winter/snow" book have you read and enjoyed?
