Wintery Books- Booking Through Thursday

Wintery Books
What I want to know today is … what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody Winter?

For me it is and will always be...The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I absolutely love this book. It reflects the hardships of the time and how you were at the absolute mercy of the weather. We complain about the snow (me especially) but we really have no idea what it is to be held captive by snow!! Could you imagine not being able to go anywhere for months!! To not get food brought in by the trains, to have nothing to eat but potatoes for weeks at a time, to have no real heat because you used up all of the wood and now you have to twist straw really tight to make it burn longer? Maybe I need to read it right now? It would help put everything into perspective for me and I might stop posting about how much Michigan weather sucks!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!


  1. Living in Florida, it is hard for me to even remember back decades ago when I lived in Maryland. Merry Christmas. Here's my post.

  2. Great perspective! I've been snowbound for most of a week here in Portland ORegon. I can't imagine months! And I could walk to the store if I really needed to. Not little Laura Ingalls though!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy snowy Holidays!

  3. As a young girl I got the entire collection of Laura Engalls Wilder books for Xmas one year. I treasured those books!

    I loved Garden Spells too! You will really enjoy The Sugar Queen. I loved the characters! That book was very visual for me.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I remember the blizzards of the 1970's when I lived in Ohio before I moved to Florida. Buurrrrr! I hope you had a Merry Christmas! Stay Warm!

  4. That choice brings back great Christmas memories of getting the Laura Ingalls Wilder books for a gift. Merry Christmas!
