Winter Reading Log

Materials

  • Small notebook
  • Pen or pencil
Directions

There is nothing better to do on a cold winter day than curl up somewhere warm with a good book.

  1. At the first day of winter, start your Winter Reading Log.
  2. Enter the date and the year, e.g., December 20th, Winter of 2005.
  3. List all the books you read during the winter months.
  4. Allow a few lines below each title to include the author's name, how you felt about the book, whether you'd recommend it to your friends, and if you own it or borrowed it. You might like to include the titles of other books by the same author.
  5. Keep your Winter Reading Log updated year after year.
Note: Winter Solstice is officially the first day of winter. It falls on about December 22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on about June 22 in the Southern Hemisphere.
