Book Blogger Hop October 12th - October 18th: The Numbers on a Six-Sided Die Add Up to Twenty-One

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books has restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another. The hop is currently traveling about the blogosphere and is being hosted by Soon Remembered Tales. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them. A complete explanation of the history and the rules of the Hop can be found here.

This week Jen asks: With Autumn upon us and Halloween drawing near, what books remind you of fall? What ones do you enjoy reading that are about autumn?

There are some books that bring up obvious memories about autumn, usually involving Halloween, and sometimes Thanksgiving; Marion T. Place's The Witch Who Saved Halloween and Ray Bradbury's Halloween Tree are clear examples of this sort of book. But then there are some books that feel like they take place in the autumn, no matter what time of year they are actually set. For me, Danny, the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl has always felt like a book about autumn. I just always envisioned Danny and his father walking around Hazell's Wood looking for pheasants in the crisp fall evenings and then heading home to eat their ill-gotten gains on a cold, clear autumn night with the wind rustling through the trees outside.
