What's on your Winter Reading List?

The winter break is one of my favorite times to curl up with something to read -- something about the combination of a plush blanket, a mug of something steamy, and a new book (or download on an eReader!) makes me feel really cozy.

Here's what I'm hoping to dig in to that will make me think:

The Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
(I may be the last person in the world who hasn't read this yet.)

Curation Nation: How to Win in a World Where Consumers are Creators by Steven Rosenbaum
Being a digital curator myself, I've been meaning to get my hands on this and read about the critical role of human aggregators in our information-saturated society.

Here's what I'll read when I need a laugh:

F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers by Richard Benson
Q: Name the wife of Orpheus, whom he attempted to save from the underworld.
A: Mrs. Orpheus.

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary by Ian Falconer and David Sedaris
For better or worse, David Sedaris makes me snort aloud when I'm reading late at night, which sometimes wakes up my husband.

And here's what I'll pick up if I just want to be swept away to another world:

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Really, I'm just a softie for anything about the circus. But this one looks particularly intriguing.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Winged creatures? Devils? Art students? Magic? Blue hair? I'm in.

What are you going to read?
