Books I read in September:

 Leonardo and the Last Supper by Ross King (library) about the painting I learned a lot
Anne of Windy Poplars by L. M. Montgomery rereading these for the rest of the year. So lovely
Belle Weather by Celia Rivenbark (library)I am serious when I say that I read everything by an author, just discovered Celia Rivenbark and now I have read 4 books by her, I have 2 more on hold at the library and will be waiting with bated breath for the next to be published (it comes out in October, so I don't have to wait that long)
Love All by Callie Wright (library) enjoyed --Peyton Place ish
Europe on 5 Wrong Turns a day by Doug Mack (library) cute, a guy takes the 1960's book "Europe on 5 dollars a day" and tries to follow it today.

The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer (library) interesting
The Day the World Came to Town: 9/11 in Gander, Newfoundland by Jim Defede (library) OMG, I cried the entire time I was reading this book thank goodness it was only 244 pages. I really should not read 9/11 stuff. Anyway, it was awesome, highly recommend
