50 Books to Read this Winter

I love to read. Lately I find that I cannot sit down and read a book without getting bored. I think technology has crippled my ability to read for hours upon hours. When I sit down to read a book, I find myself grabbing for my iPad or iPhone to check instagram, facebook, twitter, or play a game. I will be reading and my mind will start to wonder. I hope that during winter break I can change that.

I asked my Facebook friends to list 10 books that have stuck with them over time. I was overwhelmed by the conversation that occurred and so I thought I would share the books that were listed. What are you reading this winter?
