Seasonal Favorite?

Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising

I don't think of this as a seasonal read, but that's probably because I don't remember the detail.  But I do remember loving the series.  This is the one most people started on even though two preceded it--Over Sea, Under Stone and Greenwitch.  For those interested in the realm of fantasy who have not yet encountered this remarkable series, do yourself a favor and pick it up.  Written for young adults/children, it is far more compelling than most adult fiction.  (In general children and YA will put up with a lot less nonsense than will an adult reading the same material.  Much to be said for such grounded common sense about reading.)
