14 Books to Help You Escape the Heat of Summer

If you want to feel like you’re surrounded by ice, chill out with one of these books about the Arctic and Antarctica.

If you want to feel like you’re in a place surrounded by ice on the hottest days of the year, settle down with one of these excellent books about the Arctic and Antarctica and chill out.
