Fall Reading

Fall Reading


Oh, glorious fall.  My favorite season of the year with its leaves of many colors, pumpkin pie (pumpkin everything), cooler weather, Halloween, and, of course, lots of new books.  It seems like I was just posting my summer list of books to look forward to, and although I'm still finishing up that list, I can say that it was a summer of love, for reading that is. This fall the upcoming books will once again assure that reading will be my primary activity.  And, remember that these books listed are the ones I hope to get to.  There are always more, and no doubt I will be slipping in what I can.  In fact, although I included one reissue of a classic, I'll probably be doing a separate post on those out this fall.  I hope readers can find some books from my list to add to their fall reading, and I always want to hear about ones I didn't post that you're looking forward to.
