Booksie's Shelves, September 13, 2015

It feels like the back of the summer heat and humidity has been broken.  While it's still hotter than I'd like, it isn't overpowering.  Fall is on its way and football is back. In the fall, football takes a lot of my reading time, but I've still managed to read some great books.  Here's what's come through the door:

You're as bad as me. LOL I'm always reading more than one book at a time. Enjoy your new ones.

Exactly, Laura. There are upstairs books and downstairs books. Books to listen to at the gym, books for waiting in line, books for traveling. Sometimes I want nonfiction, sometimes a novel. Maybe a mystery, maybe a fantasy, maybe literary fiction. Who can read just one?
