November Reading Wrap Up

November has come and gone and as with every month, it happened so fast. Holidays certainly make things seem like they go faster. So much planning for the moment. Hope those that celebrate had a happy Thanksgiving with minimal familial stress. Ours was good if busy and I would be fine with a vacation from the vacation.

Good food was eaten, Christmas decorations were put up and we even got to see some dinosaur bones. Last time we were at The Museum of Natural History was November 2019 so seemed like a nice opportunity to go again this year, even if toddlers can only pay attention for so long, even if it's something they want to see
But hey, let's check out some stats

Number of books read
The Deadly Inside Scoop by Abby Collette
Sparkling Cyanide by Agatha Christie
Oona Out of Order by Margarita Montimore
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin

Number of pages read
Only 10 pages more than last month, when I also read 4 books. And apparently all books are about the same length
(Longest book between Oct & Nov was 375. Shortest 304. Average 337. Because I know you were on the edge of your seat wondering about that)

Resolution books
A Deadly Inside Scoop is by a Black author, Abby Collette
Sparkling Cyanide by Agatha Christie was published before 2000 AND is by a non-US author
The Left Hand of Darkness was also published before 2000

Not bad BUT could be better. As always. Let's see what December brings though fair warning, I will probably focus more on comfort and quick reads because December feels like it's going to be a very busy month. Also I would very much like to get to 52 books by the end of the year and I'm close!
