#Markd9528's Books for Any Season

In the past week I've redone 100+ very long and popular book challenges that I last did 2 years ago. The great majority of the books on this list appear frequently on the aforementioned challenges. So it would seem that reading these books could be a delight in both the balmy Northern Hemisphere summer holidays and in the freezing cold Southern Hemisphere winter (min. temps of ~8 deg. C, 46 deg. F in Sydney). I've also included some recommendations from blogs.
Mostly for Seinfeld fans:
I decided to publish this mid-June in the lead up to the Southern Hemisphere version of Festivus, which is to be held on 23rd June. This of course is exactly six months after the legendary "A Festivus For the Rest of Us", held annually on 23rd December in the Northern Hemisphere. Needless to say the Australian celebration will feature the traditional 'Feats of Strength, 'The Airing of Grievances', ' and 'The Pole' (follow the link if you think I'm making all of this up).
