Compilation: Fall Reading

Oct 10 2012

by Whitney Long

We are a bunch of self-professed bibliophiles at The Southern Coterie… we all love to read, collect and talk books! Conversation is often centered around who is reading what so we wanted to share some favorites from our personal libraries and also some titles on our “book bucket list”.

The cooler temps and shorter days ahead, signs of fall in the South, beckon you to grab a blanket, a glass of wine or cup of coffee and sit in front a crackling fire… good book in hand, of course! Here are our suggestions:
