November Total = 8
Year-to-Date Total = 58

Oh dear. Not a single review yet. It was a good reading month, though, as I enjoyed all of these. My favorites, though, were The Signature of All Things, Fangirl, and Feed. All three of those are heading to my Top 10 of 2013 list for sure.

Book Club

My local book club was on hiatus this month. We have our holiday meeting coming up this week.

The Third Thursday Book Club read The Schwa Was Here, by Neal Shusterman. It was generally and universally liked. Some even loved it. It was a solid book for me, but I got a little bogged down by some things. Next month is our holiday party and our discussion of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, by Helene Simonson.


No challenge progress this month.

Classic Double Challenge – 1/2
The Pulitzer Project – 12/86
The Printz Project – 8/14 (+7 honor books)
The Newbery Project – 25/92 (+12 honor books)

November Highlights

That’s it. That’s what happened in November. Thanks to everyone who stopped by my blog this month!

    Looking forward to see what challenges come for 2014.
    This year I reread Ludlow’s, Gileadi’s, and Skousen’s books on Isaiah, and, of course, lighter reading material. I need a goal this year….Is there a list of the classics you would recommend? When I graduated as an English major I swore I wouldn’t read another classic for a long time….

    I enjoyed Bill O’Reilly’s Killing Lincoln, and Elizabeth Smart’s book this month. Also some old Dick Francis novels, and a bunch of Louis L’Amour’s when I was sick.
    Reading keeps me sane!
