Book Club Mom’s September recap – summer’s over!

September is often the month for fresh starts and getting back on track after the lazy days of summer. The truth is, for me, summer can be busier than fall! It’s much quieter here now, with kids out of the house, going to school or working. I like the hustle bustle of a full house, but there are always books, right?

I read some good ones this month and was surprised that I had chosen three nonfiction books! I have always preferred fiction, but I’m noticing more and more interesting narrative nonfiction books that I want to read.

The Escape Room by Megan Goldin
Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes
My Friend Anna – The True Story of a Fake Heiress by Rachel DeLoache Williams
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
The Library Book by Susan Orlean

In case you missed these author profiles:

Who’s That Author? Truman Capote
Who’s That Author? Linda Holmes
Who’s That Indie Author? Amy Tasukada
Are you a self-published or indie author? Email
if you would like to be featured on Who’s That Indie Author.

And I wrote these random and spontaneous posts:

Library book strategies – managing (or not managing)
holds on the new and popular books
Grammar talk: misspelled words and other confessions
Social media book groups – are you in one?
Here comes fall – books to match the season!

I know it can be hard to say goodbye to summer, but I think September is a good transition month. Hope you are ready to ease into fall with a good book! What’s in your reading pile?

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!

  1. Hey – I did enjoy your posts this month – don’t always have log in access to leave comments –
    And…welcome October and I enjoyed your posts this month – in my reading pile I am finishing the four hour work week by Timothy Ferriss ((read it to critique but found inspiration)) and reading body meridians and natural healing stuff (topics I love)
    Wishing you a great day- enjoy the quiet and your books (fiction and non!! Woo hoo)

      1. Oh cool! He is new to me and while I sense a little ego (not too much like some folks out there! And Not sure I like all of his objectives and goals in life (as a Christian I have some heavenly perspectives that differ greatly) but he is a true motivator and he seems to love sharing his knowledge to others can gurow –
        And that is win win!

      2. I enjoy his interviewing style. He seems to do his research and he has many great, inspirational guests on his podcast. I read one of his books this past year. I can’t remember the actual name, where he compiled input from many great minds. It may have been “Tool of Titans.” I find how he has recently opened up more about his personal struggles/challenges. I like the opportunity of quiet in my life, although podcasts make commuting fun. Thanks for sharing:)

      3. Well thank you for CHiming in!! I am so new to his podcast – just got half through the latest one – loved the part about magic and pickpockets –
        Which then got into psychology and “attention” ((so good))
        And your liking his stuff means a lot so I will delve more!

  2. An interesting, assortment of books, Barbara. I have bookmarked, “Library book strategies” post. I am curious on any tips on how you manage holds. Of course, books I truly would love to read all arrive at the same time. I was fortunate to be away camping the last couple weeks and I indulged in many books. A huge treat, as you well know:) I really enjoyed Jill Weatherholt’s book, “A Mother for his Twins.”🙂

    1. Hi Erica – well, my only tips are to look into how to freeze holds at your library. Otherwise I’m a complete bumbler when I put holds on books, so that when they all come in, I have to read like a demon! Thanks for the visit 🙂

  3. I’m way late to the party — but October and November are my favorite months, so welcome to autumn and hopefully cooler, fireplace-cozy reading nights 🙂

  4. I’ve got 2 library books out, one by Michael Robotham, other by Elizabeth George. Each was written in the last century 🙂 So they’re earlier books of theirs. I’ve got other books as well that are mine on my TBR list but once inside a library I have to take at least a few. I resisted taking more from the library because well, you know … Have a lovely weekend Barbara and enjoy the fall! It should be warm and sunny here but it’s not, the wind is howling and it’s cold –
