Saturdays are usually pretty slow at the reference desk, so today I decided to take some of that downtime and swap out one of the displays. Kansas – and much of the nation – has been experiencing a heat wave this week, with temperatures in the triple digits, and there doesn’t seem to be much of a relief in the near future. Thus, I came up with the theme Read Cool, Keep Cool:
Reading takes you to different places, right? I thought people would respond well to the idea of keeping their minds off the heat by reading fiction that takes place in cold climates. I pulled general fiction, mysteries and even science fiction set in places like Alaska and Antarctica, or during winter months.
I have a few titles lined up already for summer reading, but I’m thinking I might have to amend my list and check one of these out myself. What’s your favorite cold weather read?
