I thought I'd pry myself away from the Wii and actually post on the old blog. I hope you're all enjoying the holidays.

What I want to know today is … what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody Winter?
I recently read Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton where winter is a major factor in the lives of the characters. Winter is almost a character in the story. There is a claustrophobic feel to the novel because it happens in the winter months.
Although much of the story doesn't happen in the winter, I always think of Wuthering Heights as a wintery book. In the first pages, the narrator is trapped by a winter storm and is forced to be an unwelcome guest at Wuthering Heights. He spends an uncomfortable night which includes an encounter with a ghost.
That's all I can think of at the moment. I have logy turkey brain.
