    Oh, the holidays. They truly test the limits of what family is, of who your family is, and of what it means to spend more than a weekend together. Sure, the first day is fun and the second is relaxing, but by the end of the third or fourth, you could use an escape, something to distance yourself from the annual "friendly discussion" over the best way to, say, wrap a present — something like a really good book.

    This year, consider the winter read, the meaty, more-serious cousin to summer's fluffy page-turner. While you could delve into one any time of year, they particularly lend themselves to the distraction the holidays call for. And, that's why we rounded up nine right here. With each available on Windows Store via the infinite library of the Kindle app, you don't have to worry about piling hefty hardcovers into your suitcase. So, find a quiet corner and curl up. It's about time you got lost in someone else's drama. Advertisement
