Books For Fall

I've been reading a lot this fall, here's a few titles.

Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson. (Great map, more books need maps.)


The House on Falling Star Hill. Great book with another great map.

Plain on the outside...

Blitzed Brits by Terry Deary. The Blitz is big in British museums right now, which also means the Blitz (and hoards of fallout shelter paraphernalia purchased from ebay) is big with my mom. We have nearly every book in the 'Horrible Histories' collection. All well written, and peppered with illustrations and cheeky jokes as shown below.

The Black Island and Tintin In Tibet by Herge. Can't wait for the Tintin movie! Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are cast perfectly for the Thomson Twins.

  1. Wow, looks like you raided my brother's bookcase (10engines). Great reads. Our second cousin was the child actor in the movie of Kidnapped. Love your picks.
