It’s here: Autumn. Back to school, shorter days, cooler nights. Though we here at Dock Street find this time of year perfect for reading. Our editor, Dane Bahr, and his wife and associate editor, Madeline Mancini-Bahr, are currently in Crested Butte, Colorado, spreading the Dock Street love. The “colors” (aspen leaves changing in the fall), as the locals call it, is in full swing. The mountains are burning in yellows and reds, oranges and greens, backdropped by 14,000 foot peaks. In a word: Gorgeous! Dane and Madeline wanted to share it with their fellow readers and friends of Dock Street. So with every book purchased, they’ll throw in some genuine aspen leaves, plucked by hand. Use them as bookmarks, decorate your office, make a mobile! It’s our little way of saying, Thanks!

(Sorry, can’t seem to get this picture to right itself! Lie on side!)
