Winter Reading: #AMonthofFaves Post


From A Month of Faves: Books on my Winter Reading List.

I really don't have a winter reading list. I do have some thoughts on how I'm going to read heading into 2016.

I've been working on my stats for my year end post and I'm a little surprised by what I've found. Thirty-one (out of 60) of my 2015 reads were from the US. That's more than half. More than the books I've read from my own country- 9 Canadian. The US has an advantage. It's a numbers game. They publish more books a year. There is a lot of publicity for those books. I worked towards reading more diversely in 2015. Maybe in 2016 I should work on reading more worldly.

But that's a long term goal.

For now, I have a few new books coming: Cassandra at the Wedding, Little Tales of Misogyny, and The Homemaker.


Other books I'm thinking about reading:

If On a Winter's Night a Traveler


I just think the title is appropriate for the season

Far From the Madding Crowd

I mentioned it yesterday

Lolita

I want to reread this. And find a cover like this edition, not a gross one.

What are your winter reading plans?

  1. I'm sure most of my books are American as well since that's where I live. I generally don't pay that much attention to things like that. Shame on me.

  7. Thanks for reminding me to pick up the Calvino! It does sound perfect for this time of year.

  8. First, I'd really like Texas weather to calm down and get cold. It's 70-something for Christmas and that's just not acceptable. Sigh. Colder weather = wanting to snuggle down and read.

  9. You don't want that nasty Lolita cover with the man's lips and facial hair? (EW!!)
