The weather is changing, the days are darker and the nights are longer. 
What a great time to snuggle down with a good book!

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost
 
Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   
My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   
He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.

We are unveiling our own world of reading by following our reading paths. 
Our theme:
"Traveler, there is no path.
The path is made by walking."
---Antonio Machado
 It is going to be a wonderful year of enthusiastic reading and personal reflection!
  We will map our worlds in March.
