As our current favourite book-series-turned-tv-show is fond of exclaiming, winter is coming. Even though here at the southern end of Africa the winters are mild and pleasant, the occasional chill that drives us indoors presents the perfect opportunity to curl up with a new book or two.
If you are at a loss when it comes to choosing new reading matter, have a look at our monthly Exclusive Recommends fiction selection or check out books shortlisted for the Sunday. Winter is also the perfect time to pen long leisurely letters to long-lost lovers or forgotten friends – and if you do that this winter, you stand a chance of winning a university degree!
See our Untold Stories article for more information.
Until next month, happy reading!
