Bev's Book Beat - September 2023

"I guess I'm just feeling September-ish...

All the trees change color, the days get very clear

with a little smoke on the horizon from burning leaves. Pumpkins begin to come out."

George Selden

Fall is my favorite time of year. Along with the beautiful colors and the cooler weather, there’s always a plethora of books! All kinds of books. Many popular authors' books will be coming out in the next few months. More on those in the months ahead. 


I’m looking forward to several books by authors I like coming out; William Kent Krueger; Jeffrey Archer; Kate Atkinson; Craig Johnson and Allen Eskens If you haven’t read any of these authors, give them a try. 



"Books and doors are the same thing.

You open them, and you go through to another world."

Jeanette Winterson

Happy Reading!
