Fall is officially here and as the weather gets cooler I envision nights curled up near a fire with a steaming cup of hot tea or cocoa and of course a good book. This season there is no shortage of good reading material out there. Several of the current bestsellers are printed on none other than our very own Domtar paper. Here are a few titles to add to your fall reading list:
Born to Run
by Bruce Springsteen
If you saw the 2009 Super Bowl show then you witnessed the very event that inspired this autobiography. In the seven years since that memorable show Springsteen devoted himself to putting his life story on paper. You will find that he has the same ability to express honesty, humor and originality in his writing as he does in his songs. You can tell that he has thought deeply about his experiences and his story is one that will be enjoyed by any workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll.
The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo
by Amy Schumer
If you like Amy Schumer’s standup then you will love her refreshingly candid and uproariously funny collection of personal and observational essays. Emmy Award-winning comedian, actress, writer and star of “Inside Amy Schumer” and the acclaimed film “Trainwreck” has taken the entertainment world by storm with her winning brand of smart, satirical humor. In “The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo,” Schumer shares her story and the experiences that have shaped who she is: a woman with the courage to bare her soul and stand up for what she believes in while making us laugh. Ranging from the raucous to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing, this highly entertaining and universally appealing collection is the literary equivalent of a night out with your best friend—an unforgettable and fun adventure that you wish could last forever.
Dork Diaries 11: Tales From a Not-So-Friendly Frenemy
by Rachel Renée Russell
Nikki and her friends Brandon, Chloe and Zoey are up for another adventure in the 11th book in the New York Times’ best-selling “Dork Diaries” series, which chronicles the daily drama of Nikki Maxwell’s life in and out of school through doodles, drawings and comics presented in diary form.
