Hurricane Irma and Books for Stormy Weather

At Read (Think) Books, we're prepping for Hurricane Irma, and that got me thinking: what are the perfect books for stormy weather?

Here are a few from our lists:

A Land Remembered by Patrick D. Smith

Because it's about Florida and a hurricane.

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

Because it's ALSO about Florida and a hurricane.

Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

Because Mad Rogan's nickname is El Huracán, and nothing heats up a wet day like magical violence and sexy romance!

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

Because, funny! and we love Allie.

Big Trouble by Dave Barry

Because a funny Florida author is GOOD during a storm!

Poetry is for People edited by William C. Doster and Martha McDonough

Because an anthology of poetry includes poems that are funny, frightening, romantic, sad, inspiring, and intellectually stimulating, just the thing for riding out a storm.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Because the world of Elizabeth and Darcy is peaceful and cozy. Anti-scary.

Hurricane Hours:

September 7, Thursday: OPEN
September 8, Friday: OPEN (until windows are boarded up)

September 9, Saturday: CLOSED
September 10, Sunday: CLOSED (as usual)
September 11, Monday: CLOSED
September 12, Tuesday: CLOSED (probably)
