    Shift Change Reads

    Wondering what's on the shelf for folks as seasons shift from one to another...be it fall into winter or spring to summer...active to hibernation or cocoon to butterfly...

    I've got several going right now...

    The Art of Travel by Alain de Botton ; The Only Street in Paris by Elaine Sciolino; and Max Perkins: Editor of Genius by A. Scott Berg. Just finished Accidental Saints by Nadia Bolz-Weber.

    I'm halfway through "The Hanging Tree" by Ben Aaronovitch - started well and then got stuck. Hopefully it will become unstuck sometime soon...

    I just finished The Nix, by Nathan Hill. On a lot of lists, but highly recommended.

    I also have been on a Neil Gaiman kick. I read The Graveyard Book and am about half way through American Gods. I like Gaiman's writing and thoroughly enjoyed The Graveyard Book. American Gods is less approachable and requires a more careful read.

    Tune In, by Mark Lewisohn. First of a trilogy of books on the Beatles. A must read for fans. Incredibly thorough history. Volume 1 goes up through December 1962, before the madness started.

    I just finished 1Q84 and South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami. Still deciding what to pick up next...

    Cat's Eye, by Margaret Atwood. I've had it for years (can't believe what I paid for it!); just felt like rereading it.

    The Hanging Tree doesn't come out until January in the States. I have it on pre-order, so hopefully I like it. I've loved everything else in this series, particularly the audiobooks. The narrator is one of the best I've heard.

    I'm currently re-reading some old favorites, and I just started The Invisible Guardian by Dolores Redondo, based on a recommendation from a co-worker.

    I'm undecided as to what I will read next! I have a hankering to re-read All The Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy (expect a reduction in punctuation if that happens). Or, perhaps something by Ursula K. Le Guin, as I haven't yet read any of her books.

    Great idea for a thread, btw, KmK... it's fun to know what people are reading!
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

    My favorite book of this year is A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. I'm currently reading Mara Wilson's Where Am I Now?

    The Lefthand of Darkness, winner of both Hugo and Nebula Awards, published in 1969, but still so relevant. Check out the reviews on Goodreads.
