Fall Books

As most of you know or have noticed, I do like to read. But I think that Fall definitely influences my choice of books. More so than other seasons.

Winter causes my rate of reading to increase, due to the lack of motivation to step foot out the door or even out from under the blanket. But I wouldn't say it puts me
in the mood for a certain type of book.

But Fall! Fall makes me want to read long, serious tomes that are comfortingly heavy in your hands. And it makes me want to read creepy books with dark atmosphere and a villain around every corner.

I just read Carlos Ruiz Zafon's Shadow of the Wind, which was excellent Fall reading. I'm ready for more spooky, gothic novels.

On the other hand, I love the I Spy books in general, and I Spy Spooky Night in particular. So if I don't feel like tackling something big and heavy, I may opt for the picture book with riddles instead.

I have to agree with you- maybe it;s the Halloween -thing- or that it gets dark so early- I just finished "The Keep"- very creepy- Now I'm reading "The Thirteenth Tale"- it could go either way- I'm undecided. Oh yeah- and Don Quixote is very scarey!!! I'm afraid I'm going to knock myself back into the 15th century when I read laying on the couch.
