Autumn is here in Edinburgh, and with it the colder weather – somewhat earlier than expected! We’re not too sad about it here at the Golden Hare, though, since it’s the time of year again where there’s no excuse or justification needed to curl up with a good book.
Our Autumn window features the title of one of the world’s most famous poems, ‘Ode to Autumn’ by the Romantic English poet John Keats. It’s the ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’, and to this end we’ve compiled a selection of the best fiction, non-fiction and children’s books that are perfect to enjoy during the colder months, and displayed them in our window.
From the latest book trend Hygge to the perfect autumnal fiction read The Essex Serpent, and Oliver Jeffers’s latest offering A Child of Books for the little ones, there’s something for everyone here at the Golden Hare. A book doesn’t have to be autumn-themed to be a perfect read this season – big books like Anthony Doerr’s All The Light We Cannot See or Leo Tolstoy’s classic tome Anna Karenina are ideal for this time of year. Come on inside and you’ll find non-fiction such as Amy Liptrot’s The Outrun and Jim Crusley’s Autumn, the latter a dedication to the season – an ode to autumn, you might say!
