A bookish December

Much like there are certain books I like to read only during the sticky summer months, there are books that scream "December" to me. You know the ones—where snow-topped landscapes and holiday lights shine from the pages. Books like Little Women and The Golden Compass and even Harry Potter. (Who among us hasn't dreamt of a winter break at Hogwarts?) These are books, in my mind, that deserve to be read as winter descends, preferably by a roaring fire and with a steaming mug of something tasty.

Are there books that you read every December? I asked the other bloggers for their picks, which included:

And of course, I would be lying if I left out my favorite December book of all: The Baby-sitters Club Super Special #7, Snowbound! This is one of my comfort reads, and I always manage to find 45 minutes in between the holiday madness to read through it each year.
