Today is December first, which leads me to reflect on the books I read during the month of November. I was amazed when counting back that I had read eleven books: a book about books, an inspirational book, a memoir, a mystery, a non-fiction book, a Newberry Award winning kid’s novel, three novels, and two YA novels. This floored me, for also during the month of November, I graded 23 research/argument (7-10 pages each) papers; my students finished and presented their Literacy Projects; I caught a four-day virus, which I promptly shared with My Better Half; my brother from Virginia came for a visit; I turned another year older, and we celebrated Thanksgiving. Whew!
Here is a quick list of titles and authors I read:
Academic Curveball by James J. Cudney (to be reviewed here soon) Kindle
And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hasseini (reviewed on this blog recently) audio book
Books For Living by Will Schwalbe (reviewed on this blog recently) borrowed from an e-library
Compulsion ( a YA novel) Kindle

In The Shadow of the Statues by Mitch Landrieu ( to be reviewed here soon) Book club selection for November
Jesus by Max Lucado borrowed from church library

With the Christmas Holidays fast approaching, I may not do as much reading, but there are still so many books on my TBR shelves, and my “little brother” gave me a Barnes and Nobel gift card for my birthday!
