October's also a great time for reading. It's colder out. There's an excuse to put a fire on and curl up with a great book. It's also a spooky time of year; to wit: Halloween. All that beauty and atmosphere makes for great reading and great settings for books.
Every summer there are tons of reading lists. What makes a great summer read? Everyone has a different definition, but for me it's books you can get lost in. Leave ordinary life behind and dive into like the pool you're reading it around.
