Advice for Readers: Wintering

The Bay Area doesn't have the harsh winters that many places have--winters that force people to be primarily indoor creatures for months. We don't get lost in snowdrifts or have to brave negative temperatures. But, it does get cold(er), the days are short, and occasionally (if we're lucky) it rains. In other words, it's still the perfect season for soups, and coziness, and ample opportunities for internal reflection and slowing down. 

If you need a little inspiration or guidance in any of those wintry activities, check out one of these books.
