September Reading Challenge


Want to give your heart a little jumpstart? We’re two-thirds of the way through the year! I’m just now getting used to writing 2019 in my checkbook, and in four more months, we’re going to have to adjust to 2020. Wow.

Okay, now that we’ve all gotten our “where has the year gone” reality check, let’s get to September’s reading challenge: read a book with an illustrated cover. With so many amazing non-photo, graphic covers to choose from, this should be an easy one. I didn’t get to The Flatshare last month, so maybe September will be the month? Or there’s Katherine Reay’s gorgeous The Printed Letter Bookshop… so many choices!

Tell me in the comments below: what illustrated beauties are going to find their way into rotation this month. Do you already have some on your shelf waiting to be read?

    Carola Dunn’s 1920s female detective series featuring The Honourable Daisy Dalrymple. Different cover illustrations depending on whether they are the US or UK edition. They beautifully evoke my impressions of the time period.

    There are 23 titles to get through. Have read 4 so far. Whizzing through “Requiem for a Mezzo” as an audio book.
