6 Books to Beat the Winter Blues
I came across this list online today and can wholeheartedly recommend all of them, especially The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder. My 3rd grade mind was blown when I read about Laura and her family twisting hay together for fuel and digging tunnels in the snowdrifts in order to move from place to place. Whoa. South Dakota winters are pretty awful, but a South Dakota winter in 1880 sounds significantly worse. If you're currently bemoaning your frigid winter situation (like I am), at least you're not sitting around braiding hay and eating potatoes with Pa and your annoyingly perfect sister Mary.
