Our new YA book display feels the chill

photo of the young adult winter book displayAs Texans y'all don't really seem used to this cold weather stuff. So let a Yankee clue you into how to survive: drink lots of hot beverages (spiced cider is my favorite!), always have a few warm layers (not just mittens, be sure to have slippers or thick socks), make sure you've got something that will cut the wind (wind breakers are life savers), and find an enthralling book you can crawl under the covers with it for hours!

My winter book display is going to feature my favorite reads. So you can build a blanket fort (or just pile some on top of you), get lost in the book's pages, and forget about this chilly Texas winter.
