We’re in the hairy part of winter—cold snaps, storms, days you just don’t want to leave the house. Fortunately, there’s books! It’s a lot easier to deal with being trapped inside when you’ve got something fascinating to read.
To that end, we’ve got a collection of 15 books that are perfect to hibernate with. Through these pages you can revisit a childhood favourite — or find a new one. You can travel to places as far flung as East Africa, India, Laos, and Greenland, without standing in a long security line at the airport (or worrying about the exchange rate). You can laugh or cry, or something do a bit of both with the same book. And you can forget about that storm raging outside for a few hours.
Here are 15 books that are perfect for winter hibernation, whatever your interests or mood.
