We love the Fall—the colors, the crunch of leaves underfoot, apple picking and pumpkin patches. If you live somewhere that enjoys four seasons, you know what we mean. Wherever you live, we can all look forward to that annual spookfest—Halloween! To help you get in the spirit (pun intended), we've assembled a howling good reading list from among the many fine indie authors in the BookWorks BookShop. Enjoy!
