This week, the Artsy Reader Girl is taking a look at our Top Ten Books on Winter TBRs! What are you reading as Christmas approaches and hope for a corona-free future looms?
Ends of the Earth: The Polar Regions of the World, Isaac Asimov. Ho, ho, ho.
In Search of Zarathrusta: Across Iran and Central Asia in Search of the World’s First Prophet, Paul Kriawaczek. Hopefully an introduction to the highly impactful but often overlooked influence of Zoroastrianism on global faith.

The World Ending Fire, Wendell Berry. Collected essays.
Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents, Rod Dreher.
Mama’s Last Hug: Animal Emotions and What They Tell Us About Ourselves, Frans de Waal.
The Old Man and the Boy, Robert Ruark
Rebecca, Daphne de Maurier.
Forgotten Continent: A New History of Latin America, Michael Reid
