Weekly Update

As I am typing today, my fingers are cold; I forgot what it felt like when it’s 62 degrees in the house, but I refuse to succumb to turning on the heat. Tom has a terrific solar cover solution on our odd-shaped pool (two circles that look like bubble wrap), so we may be able to pull off a couple of more weeks in the water. I fell up the stairs in early May and damaged something in my shoulder, so it’s been water aerobics and water running for me all summer, but I love it. Wendy Corsi Staub told me about a waterproof iPod, which you can see above. Pretty cool, right? We are going to interview Wendy about her audiobook listening via this device in the next few weeks. For us readers, extending reading time to the water is great!

On Sale This Week

The following are lists of books releasing the weeks of September 15th and September 22nd that we think will be of interest to Bookreporter.com readers.

Faithful Reader

As the summer heat begins to fade, we at FaithfulReader.com are welcoming the cool breezes, changing leaves and pumpkin-flavored everything that mark the start of the new season. I am particularly entranced by the beautiful colors dressing the treetops, reminding us of rebirth and the beauty of change. While some of us have children heading back to school and others are focused on switching to a warmer wardrobe, books remain a lovely constant --- and great accessory. As you select the books that will keep you company through the start of autumn, we hope that our contests, features and reviews will offer some wonderful choices.
