Always read in bed, whether I have to have a fan on or cuddle under blankets.


What single book sums up the Autumn/Fall season for you?

I really like the Curse of Chalion, it takes place throughout the year, but it focuses on human representation of each season, which is how their religion works. I'm about to start reading The Hallowed Hunt which is set in the fall and the last in the Chalion series by Lois Bujold-McMaster.

Pick five favourite scary/autumnal books for a Halloween stack... This one is tougher, as I don't like fall or scary books. I like to skip right on to the Christmas books. I suppose anything by Steven King? Or Poe? I did just read Fall of the House of Usher, not technically a book, but it's all I got.

Pick one book to give as a 'treat' and one as a 'trick' when little monsters come to your door at the end of the month... Treat: Good Omens Trick: Color of Magic, because once you start reading Disc World books, it's hard to stop. (Or that's been my problem)

What books are you hoping/expecting to read between now and Christmas? (a selection is fine)...
The Hallowed Hunt
A Christmas Carol
(I read it every year)
Hogfather (which I also read every year).

What's the best book you read over the summer?

Finnikin of the Rock


Do you like to turn leaves, or are you a Kindle convert?

I have a Kindle and I love it, but I still spend way too much time and money in bookstores.

What's your favourite reading spot now that the weather's turning?
Definitely in bed, all snuggled up under the covers, with some light music in the background.

What single book sums up the Autumn/Fall season for you?
Little Women. I probably read that book a billion times when I was younger, and usually in the fall. It’s not at all about the Autumn season, but it just always remind me of Autumn because I read it so much during the season.

Pick five favourite scary/autumnal books for a Halloween stack...
Hmm, I don’t really ready ‘scary’ books anymore … I suppose it’s scary to think how Laurell K Hamilton has twisted her wonderful Anita Blake novels into a total mess … yeah, there we go :) She ‘used’ to be my favorite author. Kinda counts?

Pick one book to give as a 'treat' and one as a 'trick' when little monsters come to your door at the end of the month...
Treat – Anything by Dr. Seuss. Trick – Anything by Dr. Seuss? :)

What books are you hoping/expecting to read between now and Christmas? (a selection is fine)...
I have so many books to read, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I currently catching up an Nalini Singh’s Psy series, and can’t wait to get into her new series. I’m also reading a bunch of misc. books that I can’t think of right now. My goodreads is here: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2794021

What's the best book you read over the summer?
I found myself absolutely in love with the novel, The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa. It’s the 2nd part of her new series (which will sadly only be three parts). I love the world she’s created and am greatly anticipating the next and final book, and her new work as well.

Do you like to turn leaves, or are you a Kindle convert?
I will always love to turn leaves. I love the feel and smell of real books. It saddens me to think that some day, humanity will be ‘too good’ for books (then again, I love nature too, so it’s a tough in between).

I'm quite late to the party, but life has been throwing me for a loop this week...

What's your favourite reading spot now that the weather's turning? My IKEA chair with a warm blankie.
What single book sums up the Autumn/Fall season for you? Fix It and Forget It - Recipes for your slow cooker
Pick five favourite scary/autumnal books for a Halloween stack... I don't do scary books. I think the scariest book I've ever read was Mary Higgins Clark's A Cry in the Night and it was only scary because I was 8 (and not actually allowed to read it yet - I soon found out why.)
Pick one book to give as a 'treat' and one as a 'trick' when little monsters come to your door at the end of the month... It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet by Diane deGroat
What books are you hoping/expecting to read between now and Christmas? (a selection is fine)... There are several books out that I have on pre-order...the new Grisham novel, the newest installment in the Scarpetta series, as well as the next installment in the In Death series. Jim Butcher has a new Dresden Files short story coming out. And, I'm a sucker for the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I have a long non-fiction list, too. We'll see how much I actually get done. I'm at 37 currently. There is no way I'll match the 77 I read last year, but I wasn't actually trying to, so I don't really mind.
What's the best book you read over the summer? Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore It was HILARIOUS!
Do you like to turn leaves, or are you a Kindle convert? Hardcovers will forever be my favorite, but I've asked for a Kindle for Christmas. If nothing else, I can read the classics for free, and then there is the little matter that I can turn it in to a giant fan fiction reader. :D
