8 Adventure Books to Read This Winter

Honesty time: I love the outdoors- but I am a total wimp when it comes to being cold! Starting in late November, I find myself going outside significantly less to hike or climb because of this. And although I am challenging myself to suck it up a little more this year, I do enjoy a few other ways of "adventuring" and staying warm during the chilly season. I have learned that if I must stay inside for a day, enhancing some of that downtime with reading seems to help satisfy my outdoor cravings. 

*I encourage others to get outside whenever possible- but this is a nice alternative to keep up/improve upon your interests while indoors.

I usually pick up books that help me discover someplace new in the world or teach me more about leading the life I want in the outdoors through inspiring stories or autobiographies.

Here are some adventure books that have gotten me through the winter months!

What I'm currently reading: I recently picked up "A Long Trek Home" by Erin McKittrick for a book club I joined through Facebook called Adventure Grapes. Although I do not have a personal recommendation for this book (yet) it sounds like an interesting story. Click on this link to read along with us!
