What Are You Reading in December?

What is on your reading list, as the days become darker and shorter? Do your habits change as the weather turns cold? I’ve been way too busy this month to do much reading, and I’m not going to be able to slow down between now and the new year.

Since 1st December, I’ve finished:

  • Labor and Freedom by Eugene V. Debs
Eugene V. Debs, 1897

Eugene V. Debs, 1897

I’m currently reading:

  •  e. e. cummings: A Life by Susan Cheever
  • Anarchism and Other Essays by Emma Goldman
  • Beautiful Boredom: Idleness and Feminine Self-Realization in the Victorian Novel by Lee Anna Maynard

Which book on your list do you most look forward to reading, and why?
