There’s no doubt that winter is the perfect time to sit in and hunker down with some reading.

If you’re wondering what to do with a free weekend this chilly season, may we suggest putting your coziest socks on, turning on “Do Not Disturb” and getting lost in the pages of a good book or two.

And if that wasn’t convincing enough, here are some of our favourite quotes on reading to get you started.
