open book on autumn leaves

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” Like George Eliot, we love “delicious autumn”…and after this hot, steamy summer, the new season can’t come soon enough! Fortunately, your favorite harbinger of fall—Bas Bleu’s Autumn 2019 edition—is here, filled with wonderful books and literary treats! (Feeling proactive? Take a gander at our Advent calendars and other holiday gifts, too.)

To help you build your autumn reading list, our editors have selected a dozen of our favorite novels, biographies, and other fascinating nonfiction picks. For a brief plot “teaser” about each book, hover your mouse pointer over the book cover; or, click on the image to read the full review on our website. And if you don’t already receive our free catalog in the mail, you can request a copy. Happy reading!
