Fall Books to Read 2021

  Fall & Winter Reading "Books are the plane, and the train, and the road.  They are the destination, and the journey. They are home."  Anne Quindlen I love actual hard bound books with crisp pages.  I love reading. I am constantly consuming a new book with eagerness.  My brother when we were young, said, "Your nose is always glued to a book."   Fast forward to today, every morning, I come downstairs, with a book in hand.  My husband, teases me, asking if I have enough hands to carry down the stairs, an iPad, my latest book, cups, and glasses from the previous night's reading frenzy?

Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani
