It’s official! It’s Fall! *Now* I can feel happy about seeing all those fall-time treats without thinking it’s too soon -right? So bring on the crispy weather, tasty treats, and promise of Halloween fun! And in celebration of all this goodness -let’s start a new tradition…  I’m going to share some titles that have been recently added to The Reading Room by staff members and then I’m going to invite you (our faithful readers!) to share a book you’ve recently read and enjoyed! How about that!!

Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell
The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. by Adelle Waldman
The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
Southern Cross the Dog by Bill Cheng

And you? What have *you* recently read and enjoyed!?

While I wait for the responses to roll on in, would you like to ponder the bigger picture? That’s lucky as isn’t just the first official week of Fall but it’s also the official Banned Books Week! Take a stroll through past years and read our thoughts on our freedom to read freely… This year I’m going to challenge myself to read “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian,” by Sherman Alexie. A book I’ve been meaning to read for the longest time, so I’m seizing the moment…

I recently read The Burning Air by Erin Kelly and loved it! It is a psychological suspense story about two mothers who go to extraordinary lengths to nurture and protect their sons. But will their efforts be worth the ultimate cost?
