As mentioned in our previous blog post, fall is a time for adventure – but also a time to relax.
In this post, we have bundled together our favorite books for this fall season.
#1 Every Breath – Nicholas Sparks
We all remember The Notebook right? Well, get ready for more tears. Every Breath follows the lives of two people searching for answers about themselves and their loved ones — and ultimately, finding one another along the way.
#2 Becoming – Michelle Obama
A recognized name and face. Michelle Obama lived as the first lady for 8 years but proves that there is more than meets the eye. In this novel, she shares how she defied the odds to become a mother, daughter, friend, lawyer, and inspiration to women around the world.
#3 Crushing it! – Gary Vaynerchuk
It does not matter the profession you’re in, this novel is an inspiration for achieving success in all aspects of your life. The core of the novel is recognizing your personal brand and capitalizing on that.
#4 The Mars Room – Rachel Kushner
Nothing will fill you up the more than a numerous amount of enriching stories this fall. One of the most ambitious novelists of her generation, U.S. author Kushner fills her books to the brim with stories within stories, told by the characters the narrators meet or depict.
#5 Pillow Thoughts – Courtney Peppernell
Pillow Thoughts is a collection of poetry and prose about heartbreak, love, and raw emotions. It is divided into sections to read when you feel you need them most.
As you can imagine, trying to narrow down to the top 5 books for the fall season was not an easy task. However, we promise that the chosen selection above is worth your time.
As the college students are bundling up for the fall semester and the parents are rushing for their kids to be ready for the school year, the leaves are falling behind them. When summer comes to an end – sadness is in the air. However, if you sit back and really enjoy the fall season you’d be surprised at how much beauty there is.
Yes! Summer is full of freedom and a lot of fun road trip with your friends, but getting in a car that can burn your skin makes it harder to enjoy the summer especially when you have an AC waiting for you inside. In contrast, the winter is filled with freezing temperatures that make it even harder to get out of bed. For fall the temperature is what we like to call perfect! Its typically in a good range that is comfortable to be outside without the burning of the skin.
Thinking of taking the scenic route? Good choice – especially in fall. The trees change colors and you begin to see the different patterns of yellow orange, and brown. You get to experience the transformation of nature itself.
Now that we convinced you to take a fall road trip here are the top three places you should check out:
– Dundas Peak
– Blue Mountain
– Algonquin Park
Oh! Don’t forget to check out the Hanover Market when you’re on route.
Today you hear a lot of millenniums talk about vintage vibes and antique markets but what they fail to address is finding the real value in the experience of it all.
Most times people tend to go to these markets to browse around and look at items. But, if you pay attention, each item has a story to tell. If you’re hunting for antiques or vintage items, look for signs of authentic age. There are many reproductions of antiques that look old because they are made to look old. If you’re not confident you can always ask someone over at Hanover Flea Market. We will help you examine each of the items to determine its rich history. After all, the ones that collect are the most enthusiastic teachers.
Another effective way of finding the value is cultivating patience. There is usually a long learning curve to becoming a knowledgeable collector. However, this long road is fun and exciting – not to mention a great investment. Following this, we find that the happiest customers are those who follow their heart. Find items that you are guided towards. Ones that amuse and delight you. One you find aesthetically pleasing and that you’re excited to tell a story about. An object is just an object until it has meaning.
Some of the most valuable types of antiques to look out for are:
- Coin Bank
- First Edition Books
- Costume Jewelry
- Outdated Electronics
- Christmas Ornaments
- VHS Tapes
- Soda Crates
- Record Player
- Luggage Set
