I’ve been slowly reading Zen in the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance ever since I finished my summer reading. (After taking my first motorcycle ride this summer, I am hooked!)

As I travel along the road in ZenI’ve prepared my fall reading list. As before, I want to read a book of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, one of writing instruction, and re-read a book. And again, I’d love to hear what you’re currently reading and what you recommend for my winter reading!
