No, no … this isn’t the question you’re probably expecting, that asks about your winter reading habits.
What I want to know today is … what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody Winter?
Laura Ingall Wilder's The Long Winter is the first one that comes to mind.
James Meek's The People's Act of Love
Dan Simmons' The Terror
Orhan Pamuk's Snow
and lots of Russian short stories. And Joyce's "The Dead."
And the one I'm reading next, Adalbert Stifter's Rock Crystal, should prove to be awfully wintery.
