Books to get you through the dog days and help usher you into fall.

As Tropical Storm Isaac, expected to be a hurricane later today, approaches the Deep South, we think it's important to have a few good books on hand. Of course you'll need candles or flashlights to read them by, but that just makes it all the more cozy.
School starting in many locations across the country today got us thinking about those required reading lists. As an adult, you have a second chance to rediscover some of them - on your own time and with no pop quiz afterward.
A much-requested followup to our annual Summer Reading List, Deep South's Fall/Winter list invites you to curl up with a few mysteries, new releases & nonfiction reads from down South. You'll recognize some of the authors on the list, from James Lee Burke to John Grisham and Karen White. Others may not be familiar, but we think you'll want to know who New York Magazine is calling the next Cormac McCarthy and which author's new novel is being compared to "Deliverance." We've also got plenty of anticipated second novels from authors whose first books are still being talked about. So, grab a blanket, light a fire and start reading.
