I like winter but on very cold days like today (it’s -15C/5F this morning) I warm myself up by thinking of people who are often colder than I am.
So today my mind turns to the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station libraries in Antarctica.
In their winter months, the scientists and other inhabitants of the station find themselves pretty much forced to stay indoors.
The little libraries, or reading rooms, offer a peaceful place to recharge and mentally escape through the pages of the books on offer.
Besides the obvious books on the history of Antarctica, the libraries offer recent bestsellers, magazines, some audio books as well as music.
I imagine I would spend a lot of time there.
