Books to read under a blanket and help you complete your reading goals for 2021!
Reading is a hobby that you can do year round but there is just something special about reading a book in the winter curled under covers with a hot drink. So today I wanted to highlight 10 books (1 bonus at the end) that I’ve enjoyed reading and feel would be great winter reads.
Note: There is a mix of Young Adult and Adult titles in this list and each book is linked to their physical and electronic books when applicable. (Click the title if you are interested in placing the book on hold!)
We hope you'll enjoy this list of 100 great books, compiled for the occasion of the Takoma Park Library's Centennial in November, 2011. We will continue to add great new titles every year. These titles are owned by the DC Public Library, and most of them come in other formats, too -- such as audiobooks, DVDs, playaways, and ebooks! Wednesday, Nov. 17 marks the 110th "birthday" for the Takoma Park Library. We are updating this list to include books published through 2021 for a total of 110 titles! Check them out today:
