Posted on December 11, 2014 by

Summer reading may get all the hype, but winter reading has its advantages. In fact, we would even go as far as to argue that winter is the best season for reading. Here’s why.

1. Staying home to read is a perfectly valid excuse when it’s snowing.

Shorter days + cold weather = “Sorry, I can’t make it tonight.”

2. Curling up by the fire with a book and a big glass of red wine.
