The fall deluge has begun here in Seattle...which means more time to hang out on the couch and read books. From an exploration of Lafayette's role in the Revolutionary War (why was a talented young French aristocrat in the US anyway?), to an eye-opening book longlisted this week by the National Book Awards, to a crime novel with one of the year's most arresting covers, we have plenty of good books to make the weekend fly by.
Wait a second.... We like our weekends to go by slowly. But life's too short to read bad books.
