Reading during the winter quiet

This time of year, nearly done and begun, is generally one of my favorite seasons. It’s the time of mystery and wonder, and best of all, quiet, so one can read in peace.  If you are looking for something to read this week while you enjoy the deep quiet, here are a few short stories  I found particularly satisfying this year:

The Sixth Day by Sylvia Anna Hivén

Loving Grace by Erica L. Satifka

So Much Cooking by Naomi Kritzer

In Loco Parentis by Andrea Phillips

And here’s one more story — If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler by Xia Jia, translated by Ken Liu–which is a somewhat strange story, yet it somehow beautifully captures the feeling of reading in winter.
