1. I was in Boston a few years ago in mid-September and I remember really loving walking down the old streets and taking in the history. I had a pint at The Green Dragon pub where Paul Revere used to hang out. So I would say that's the best thing to do in the fall in New England

2. Watchmen (It's not a comic book - it's a graphic novel!!!!)

3. Why I Left the Contemporary Christian Music Movement by Dan Lucarini (terrible, illogical, fundamentalist propaganda - I don't even know why I finished it)

4. Cormac McCarthy - The Road and No Country For Old Men will be read like Hawthorne and Poe in 100 years. One of the greatest living American authors.

5. This changes daily but right now it's "Hard To Be" by David Bazan. His new record (Curse Your Branches) really pulled the covers back on a lot of things for me.

Hey....me too, me too! First of all, Hi Meggers! I love you and miss you terribly. And are you going to change your blog name, since you no longer live in California (even though that is still where your heart resides)?

OK...
1) I am a follower, but I don't get notices when you update, so maybe I'm not REALLY a follower. You decide.

2) The best thing to do in the fall is hanging with Lancer and I when we come to visit. I'd like to go to a Red Sox game. Also, I would like to go hiking, followed by homemade tea made by Jeremy, and then go to the pub Travis was talking about.

3)The worst book I ever read was Catcher in the Rye. HORRIBLE!

4)I'm not sure who my fav author is, but it is definitely not John Eldridge...blah blah blah blah blah.

OK...that's all I got.

I followed the link from fairweather runners blog! I live in the new england area so I love FALL! I love apple picking and making pies! I also love the rainy days we get where I can just curl up inside and read my book. I don't know that I have a favorite right now but I do love Sarah Dessen even tho she is a YA writer. She is just a great author!

Hello. I am a new follower (3) and have 12 points.
1. what was the best book you read this year? I'm hoping it will be an Echo in the Bone but until I can say that it is the Thirteen Tale by Diane Setterfield.
2.what was the worst book you have ever read? Funny thing is I don't remember the titles of the worst books. I used to read Dean Koontz and he got too wierd/scary for me so his books are now the worst.
3. who is your all-time favorite author? Diana Galbadon.
4. what is your favorite song and why? A-Ha's Take on Me. I love the video, the song and the happy tune.

I posted a link to this post on your blog.
