One of my favorite things about autumn is the “back to school” feel. Something about cooler temperatures, sweatshirts, blankets, and warm beverages makes me think of cuddling up and reading.
In fact, one of my friends recently posted on Facebook, asking for recommendation for good books. I was heartened by the number of responses. It’s heartening to hear people so passionate about books they enjoyed.
I am finishing two book club reads this month and a few books of my own choosing–September seems to be the month to load your ebook, with many publishers having sales on ebooks. I recently purchased Starting Over by Sheri S. Levy and The Spirit Tree by Kathryn M. Hearst, both discounted. I look forward to reading them.
(One of my publishers, Barking Rain Press, is featuring all books and ebooks at a 50% discount. The sale even extends to Overdrive, the system that allows schools and libraries to purchase ebooks for patrons).
I’m excited for a local festival: the Eat Local, Read Local festival and book sale. I’ll be there reading excerpts from Corgi Capers, and of course I’ll have all my young adult favorites for sale, too: The Scarred Letter, The Man with the Crystal Ankh, and The Girl Who Flew Away.
Hopefully, everyone is staying safe from fires, floods, and wind. Please feel free to share in the comments: regardless of genre, what is a good book you would recommend to a friend?
