Winter Reading Time!

Here in Brisbane, the mercury has dropped well below the 20 degree Celsius mark; perfect for curling up on the lounge under the feather duvet with your favourite books in your Winter pajamas for a good delve into another world.  So, what would you be poking your nose into this Winter?  Some classics such as 'War of the Worlds' by H.G. Wells or something a little more romantic and close to the heart to warm your insides?  Me?  I'm reading 'Acheron' by Sherrilyn Kenyon; which an absolute tome of a book, but it's worth every word and page of the 800 page or so.  It's also a first of a very popular vampire series, so I think it's worth reading up on the history of how it all began.

As for the rest of the world, it's coming into Summer.  So, what would guys be getting into?  Warmer, longer days of Summer where you can sit by the pool or out on the deck and read to your heart's content while the kids run around in the yard while you sip iced tea in the shade and read your favourites you've been meaning to get to.

My books I'm hoping to get my nose into this Winter are:

'Acheron' by Sherrilyn Kenyon
'The Cinderella Complex: Women's Hidden Fear of Independence' by Colette Dowling
'A Virtuous Woman' by Kaye Gibbons
'Everyman's Rules For Scientific Living: A Novel' by Carrie Tiffany

I'm hoping to read these by the end of Winter - seeing it's going to be a very cold one for us here.  So, do tell us, by leaving a comment or two, what you plan to read this Winter - or Summer.  Have they been on your Reading List for a long time or have they just arrived?  Until my next post, Happy Reading! 


  1. The book I am currently reading is called "Candle in the Window" which is one of many books I have bought from the thrift store where I volunteer on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I've set myself a goal to read at least one chapter per day of whatever book I'm on. In fact, this is part of my "to-do" list for Tuesdays and Thursday. By default, I do my reading at home in my room. However, if I go on any out of town trip with my mom or anyone else (of which there is little chance this summer, except maybe for my nephew's birhtday in July and/or for my when my sister has her baby in late August),I might take whatever book I'm on with me as I'm not generaly the one driving.

  2. @ Moderate Mouse: I also try to read when and where I can when I'm out and about. It's hard when you really want to but there's so much going on that you can't isn't it?
