Madelyn | 3 comments When the air gets a bit cooler and the leaves show signs of changing... I have a strange desire to read trashy Stephen King horror books. I also reread "A Separate Peace" every year; for me it personifies fall's ghostliness to perfection. What do you like to read in the fall?

Summer Rae Garcia This is the best topic! My reading is very seasonal. The fall is reserved for classics set in chilly climates, quick read mysteries and beastly epics like Edward Rutherford or Margaret George. Last year was all about Michael Connelly and Rutherford's London.

I think this year I am going Jean Auel and some Zola.

Diane  (dianedj) For me, cooler weather means hunkering down (or in) with a big epic, not necessarily a page-turner. Currently reading In America which fits the bill, and a couple of years ago it was Anna Karenian by Tolstoy.

Tess Oooo...have to read H.P.Lovecraft in October! Best time of year to do it, my friends!

Danielle For some reason I really like to read fantasy books during the fall/winter months. I usually try to read the Harry Potter books or anything Tolkein. Maybe it's because this is a magical time of year?

Armando Alvarez | 9 comments i like sf and fantasy they are pretty good lol but then again my imagination sometimes gets out of hand. I dont like seperate peace because gene betrays phineas; i know he didnt mean to push phineas out of the tree but he betrayed him with his thoughts and the way he acted toward him even when phineas protected him. sorry i dont like bashing books but this is probably my least favorite one.hmm sry babbling of subject. in the summer and spring i like reading books about magic and futuristic type . in winter and fall i like reading adventure books lets me escape the cold by going into the books and travel in them lol.=)

Clayton | 52 comments Every year on that morning when I wake up and fall is officially in the air I dig out two of my old favorites to re-read. I used to teach middle school English and read Bradbury's The Halloween Tree aloud to my students every year. Now I still read it myself every October. The other that I read every fall is Agatha Christie's autobiography. I love this book and have re-read it every year for quite some time. For some reason that book always represents fall for me.

Michael | 3 comments I dig into much bigger books it seems once Fall and that wretched season that follows comes around. I like epic in the Fall. something with lots of span and depth. I sometimes dig ou the Pendragon Cycle by Lawhead to get my King Arthur Fix, sometime Jonathan Strange & mr. Norrell for my magic fix of Adventures of Kavalier and Clay for the pulp comic fix....just to name a few.

Diane  (dianedj) Seth - interesting remark on Totem - my partner is a huge Morrell fan and he had pretty much the same reaction as you did to Totem. I never read it.
