I’m a reader. I love books. And what – seriously, tell me what – is better than a book on a chilly night? Add a hot drink and a warm fire… perfection. The fall and winter seasons lend themselves so well to reading, and I’m happy to oblige. I wanted to share with you a few titles that make it onto my nightstand every year! Peek into my bookshelf here, and know that there are dozens more that are now out of print or unlisted, so I’ve left them off of this particular list.
