MID-WINTER READS 2020

MID-WINTER READS 2020

Yep, it’s the depths of Winter right now. Here is Minnesota, we’ve still got about 3 months left to go in terms of the thermometer, but our southern friends are not far from nearing Spring. Regardless of your geographic location and which calendar you follow, when carving out time for some cozy reading this winter, look to this list of mid-winter books I’ve gathered from friends and fellow creatives (and a rec from myself). Perhaps there’s something here that helps you get through the winter a bit better… Enjoy!
