Thank you for these Winter book recommendations, I'll try reading some of them. I've read some previous comments on here and agree with the "Winter Solstice" book also. I re-read that almost every year too. It's about 500 pages so it takes me a few weeks to read it, but I look forward to each night reading in a comfy bed and re-acquainting myself with Elfrida Phipps' family. I also enjoy reading "Christmas at Fairacre" by Miss Read. It's an English countryside volume with three different quaint tales of her books.

I just found your website, and I think you are on the right track. Dh and I too are definite homebodies. In addition to books you have mentioned, we absolutely love audio books! I can cook, knit and get all sorts of other things done while listening to great reads which we download from the local library.We have not had our TV hooked up for about 8 months now, not to make a statement, just didn't have the right hookups. We do have internet, but those audiobooks are a great accompaniment to staying at home!

Your bookmarks are simple, colorful, filled with grace and beauty as everything you generously share with us is. I'm delighted to receive an email which encourages my own deep sense of being grounded and seasonal living. Kindred spirits!

Thank you for your winter book reading suggestions.. I love to bake, (more than cooking) and love to read.. The Laura Ingalls Little House on the Praire books were a favorite as a child and I thoroughly enjoyed the show later on.. I cannot understand why they classify historical books that give a history of what the pioneers and other settlers went through.. Children, young people and adults would benefit more if they learned to put our history in perspective instead of trying to rewrite it, revision it and twist it into something it was not.. Enjoy your blog. Thank you again.

Hi Kathy, I've been rereading all the Little House books recently. I hadn't read LHOTP for years, and I'd honestly forgotten how Ma talked then. It was uncomfortable reading her words, but we shouldn't try to whitewash the past and pretend Ma didn't have those feelings and sentiments. Otherwise, we will never learn to do better. And recognizing that Ma wasn't a perfect person is a good lesson for everyone, because nobody is perfect. I really like to read Rosamund Pilcher's Winter Solstice around Christmastime. It's a lovely look at a simplified holiday season. The characters aren't perfect people, they're dealing with real problems and crises, and that makes it enjoyable. I also like to read Raymond Briggs' Father Christmas and Father Christmas Goes on Holiday. My mother had very battered copies which I've inherited, and they're a delightful pair of stories. I don't recommend the DVD of them, because it's not nearly as fun as the books are.
