A Completable List of Classics to Read in September

If you're like me, you're always on the prowl for a great book. Even if your TBR pile rivals the Library of Congress, there's always room for one more. 

Am I right?

While you're out hunting through the aisles of your favorite bookstore this month, keep your eyes peeled for these two fun fall classics to read in September.

(Better yet, use the links and have them sent directly to your door!)

The Fellowship of the Ring* is a great book to read anytime of year, but I consider it a particularly fallish book because of Hobbit Day. That's right, September 22 is the birth date for both Bilbo Baggins and his nephew Frodo. If you ever needed a reason to visit Middle Earth, that party on that day would be it.

BONUS: Check back next week for some great ideas on celebrating Hobbit Day 2021!



The Innocents Abroad is another great fall classic, namely because that is the season its author spent exploring abroad. Once the heat of summer gives way to beautiful fall weather, who wouldn't want to go on a trip...especially with as humorous a traveling companion as Mr. Twain. 

BONUS: This "humorous travel narrative" is in our September Book Bag in The Classics Community. You can check it out as a one-time purchase here and get the book + a novel treasure that goes along with it.

  • Come to think of it, several wonderful novels begin with a journey in the fall! I have always loved the fall time of year, with the crispness in the air and the beautiful colors of the leaves; my favorite holiday is in the fall (Thanksgiving) and my birthday, also, so it has always seemed a special time of year to me. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova is a wonderful book that evokes much “autumn-feel” with a touch of Halloween-sinister (just enough to be slightly shivery!). I am ready to embark on The Innocents Abroad, being careful where I put my feet on the road outside my door, because you never know where it will lead you!
