Even if one of your New Year's resolutions wasn't to read more, we think we could all benefit from less Bachelor-watching and more Bovary. PS, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was a book first. Jersey Shore wasn't.
To help you get your literature on during the long, dark winter nights, we turned to author James Frey
for a winter-reading hit-list
. Whether you're a fan of Frey or not, we think his six picks
, which range from a tale of models-turned-terrorists to a kid's book you'll want to steal from your nephew, are the perfect (equally gripping) alternatives to, say, Emily Thorne's quest for vengeance. PPS: Us Weekly
doesn't count as reading, either.
