We have had gorgeous fall weather and it's forecast to continue for another week plus, but I know rain is just around the corner so I'm looking to bulk up my fun planned reading list.  Obviously there are a lot of permaculture / homesteading options to keep me busy but I'm wondering if anyone else is a "for fun" reader and if so, what do you read?  What are some all-time favorites or recently read treats?

I could list my favorite genres but will refrain from starting off that way since I hope that suggestions won't be for just me but for others who like to read.

I keep multiple books going at a time.  Currently rereading White Fang by Jack London. Working my way back through my Alistair MacLean collection.  Also reading for the first time The Year of Less by Cait Flanders, Inspiring Tiny Homes by Gill Heriz and the Authorative Calvin and Hobbes collection (with nephew).

A weirder combination than usual!

Thanks!  These are great suggestions.  

I like reading working my way through a variety of books at the same time too :) - so I always have something to match my interest or level of brain energy/focus.  

I read the Year of Less and then passed it on to my sister who also enjoyed it.  I have read Cait's blog for years so it was extra interesting to read some of those details and to watch her grow.

Calvin and Hobbes is a favorite for me too.  I used to own them all and read them to my siblings.  Maybe time for a reread.
