Winter Books

Winter is always the time I read most. Life is a little slower, and there are fewer opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, another of my favourite pastimes.

I enjoy nothing more than curling up on a sofa with a cup of tea and a good book, especially during the Christmas period, when I usually try to have some time off.

Most of the books here have Dorset connections and include adventure stories, fantasy, spy, thrillers, literary fiction, and memoirs. I hope that you will find some inspiration here for your own reading, or seasonal presents for loved ones.
