November Reading Wrap Up

Hope those that celebrate had a nice and safe Thanksgiving with tasty food, even if things were a bit different from past years. Hopefully next year will be a bit more traditional if people would just GET IT TOGETHER. In the meantime, I have taken some additional time off from work to binge Leverage, get some Christmas decorations up and maybe try to clean up the house, as futile an exercise as that is. And of course, update my blog.

I had a surprisingly productive reading month. I don't know why or what made it so but here we are. Sure there were some short ones in there, which definitely helped make the total number look higher. I actually started relistening to Lamb while I waited for a library hold to come in. And then, even though I have read the book multiple times, I was invested in hearing how Lamb turned out (would it be different this time, YOU NEVER KNOW) and then I pushed my library hold out. Again. For roughly the 10th time. But it was worth it.

Here are the stats and also a picture of the little one in some festive old man jammies
