‘Tis the Season for Great Reading

Is there a better time of the year to be a reader than fall? There are so many great books that hit shelves in September, October and November that it’s enough to make this bird go batty (in a good way).

For example, I was browsing at River City Books the other night and noted five new nonfiction titles that have recently popped up on RCB’s meticulously displayed tables — for good reason. People are not only reading these books, they are talking about them. Each of these five is a current top-five Book Sense bestseller that I recommend checking out when you have a minute.

I Feel Bad About My Neck
Nora Ephron
Funny, funny comic relief, on being a woman of that dreaded certain age, from the honest and smart Ephron. A Book Sense Pick.

State of Denial: Bush at War, Part III
Bob Woodward
Maybe you’ve heard of this book? A disillusioned Woodward changes his tune on Mr. Bush.

The Greatest Story Ever Sold

Frank Rich
An attack on the Bush PR machine, by the noted New York Times critic.

Letter to a Christian Nation
Sam Harris
A challenge to beliefs guided by religious fervor. Whether or not you agree with everything Harris writes, you’ll undoubtedly believe few writers argue their point so articulately.

Culture Warrior
Bill O’Reilly
The TV phenomenon battles the “secular-progressives” to save the “traditionalists.”
