In my part of the world, the temperature has gone below 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
And that means it’s time to do some polar reading.
This year, I’ll probably read Jules Verne’s The Adventures of Captain Hatteras, and, maybe, Ernest Shackleton’s South.
However, given how far behind I am in reviews, it will be awhile before I talk about them.
In the meantime, you get this from Kathryn Schulz. There’s a lot of famous writers who mentioned the poles in their work: the Brontes, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Mary Shelley, Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Allan Poe, Wilkie Collins, and Charles Dickens.
