Reading GreenI’m having a holiday at home this week and have had time to ponder my fall reading. Yesterday I picked out three classics that I’d like to read in the next few months. They all have beautiful varying shades of green in their covers and look very nice together – I think it is meant to be. I also plan to read a couple of big name contemporary novels, The Lowland and The Goldfinch. I like spontaneous reading, but I think I do my best reading when I have a plan. Do you have a fall reading plan?

The winner of the Mary Stewart giveaway is Cynthia D. Congratulations, Cynthia! Send your address to me at gudrunstightsatgmaildotcom and I will get the books in the mail to you this week.


  1. Good choices! I’m planning to read The Little Friend by Donna Tartt, it arrived just yesterday. Do you know the book?

  2. Thank you so much. It’s really exciting to win something and next to money, books are my favorite thing to win.

  3. A lovely selection of books, and I do like the new look.

  4. Sounds a good mix! I go through phases of planned and unplanned, and found I read best when it’s a blend of both. My reading plan for this season is simply to read as much as I can. Summer was so good this year not much reading got done.

  5. I am also planning to read The Lowland. I have enjoyed Lahiri’s other books so much! Another book that is getting good reviews is Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book The Signature of All Things. I plan to read that one also. A reading plan sounds like a great idea, though I don’t have one. My book club choices become my sort of plan, and then I add to that classics that I want to reread or anything else that catches my fancy. Enjoy!

  6. I read “Member of the Wedding” when I was about 22 years old and liked it very much. I wonder how it would hold up for me today, several decades later.
