Dear Reader, Orange you glad?

It’s an old knock-knock joke, isn’t it?

Orange you glad I didn’t say banana, right?

I don’t know about where you live, but here in central Indiana, the cicadas are humming, rows of corn are browning near the ground, and hints of yellow spot the leaves on the trees.  Autumn is definitely arriving on what’s left of receding summer breezes.

That has me thinking about orange.

Orange pumpkins.

Yellow-orange school buses.

Orange gourds and the orangey brown of melted caramel on apples.

Orange leaves.

Orange mums.

And orange books.

I took a walk around all the bookshelves in our home and pulled out the ones with orange spines, just for fun. Turns out I have quite a few, and a good variety, too, which feature variations of heart-warming orange:



Have you read any of these?

Do you see any favorites?

Better yet, wanna share your orange books?

Post a picture on your twitter or Instagram, and be sure to put the hashtag #orangebooks at the end.
