If you live in the Northeast United States like I do, you are probably digging yourself out from another snow storm. My son is enjoying his second day off from school, and we have had substantial snow at least once a week for the past three.
The good thing about cold, snowy days is the possibility of lots of reading. There's something perfect about curling up with a hot drink, a warm blanket, and a very large book. Winter is the perfect time to tackle that huge book you've been meaning to read. Here are some door stopper books I've read and a few I'm hoping to pick up this winter!
