Escape into a Good Story
Reading can be a wonderful pastime at any time of the year, but in the winter it can provide a much-needed escape. When you're feeling stuck in a season filled with cold dull days, books can transport you to another place. Whether that place is new to you or somewhere you've been before, the choice is as simple as the book you reach for.
Movies, too, can help you feel like you've been away, enabling you to "travel" somewhere exotic for a short time.
A good story (in a book or movie) that's set in some far-off destination is an affordable and easy way to get away. Don't overlook your local library as a free source for some armchair travelling. Bon voyage!
