BW39: Happy Autumn

Japanese Maple,  North Carolina by Melissa Farlow 

~Happy Happy Autumn~   As of Tuesday, September 23nd, Autumn officially begins for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and for our brother and sister readers in the Southern Hemisphere, it is officially Spring.  Fall with the cooler weather and colorful leaves always rejuvenates me for some reason.  I get in the mood for baking, strolling through the park through crackling leaves then nesting in my house in a comfy chair and reading.  

So what do you think of when you hear the words Autumn or Fall?  Leaves, of course, but what else?   Trees, falling, breeze, apples, football, corn, Halloween, harvest, orange, yellow, brown and crisp to name a few.   I bet you see where this is going.  Yep, read a book with a title that is associated with the season.  Or you can even read a book that is set during the autumn season. That one may be a bit trickier to find.

In my meandering about the interwebz, found the following offers:


Red Harvest by Dashiell Hamment


Bitter Harvest by Ann Rule


Autumn of the Patriarch by Gabriel Garcia Marquez


Early Autumn by Robert B. Parker
House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski
Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman 




Hmmm, they all look a bit serious and dark, but intriguing. Will have to look for some fun reads as well. Have fun searching out some titles and if you can find them already in your stacks, that will be a bonus. 

Happy Fall!
