- Copper Beech: A Novel by Maeve Binchy. The title brings to mind copper-colored Autumn leaves. I’ve read and enjoyed most of her books.
2. Walking With Henry: The Life of Henry David Thoreau. Although a children’s book, this is an excellent Autumnal read for any age. (Hint: The whole series is lovely).
4. Southern Living Soups, Stews and Chilis: Comfort Food in a Bowl Fall eating at its best! [I’ve chosen this to represent all such cookbooks. I do not own this one]. I could have chosen a Crock-pot cookbook or a bread book or even a hot drinks cookbook.
5. Game-Day Fare: Over 240 Recipes…. The other type of Fall food–tailgating food! [Again, I’ve chosen this one to represent all such cookbooks. I do not own this one, either]. My alma mater could certainly tailgate, even if they couldn’t win a football game most years. Indiana University has always done much better in basketball season.
6. NFL Century and The College Football Book. What comes to mind in Fall? Football! Including Lucy always tricking Charlie Brown! [I don’t own either of these]. There aren’t many marching band books–I’d love those instead.
7. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving. We grow up with these shows, don’t we? I was in the original generation to watch them! They are part of every Fall of my life. I’ve picked the book versions for this post since many families have them as well as copies of the shows.
8. Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War by Nathaniel Philbrick. Of course, we in the USA celebrate our Thanksgiving Day in late November–but it is still definitely Fall. You can read my review here.
9. Top-Down Sweaters. Fall is “Sweater Weather.” This choice intrigues me. I’ve only knit sweaters starting with the ribbing–the bottom. I could have chosen sock knitting patterns or scarf patterns or maybe a book of odd ways to tie-a-scarf diagrams.
10. Death By Pumpkin Spice by Alex Erickson. Unless the product is topped with cream cheese and real butter frosting, I don’t really care one way or the other about PPS. I don’t even drink coffee, let alone do so in a sweater with an unnecessary scarf tied in a weird fashion that requires diagrams! This book about sums it up for me. I might even read it!
