November Books

I did better this month than last, despite feeling restless much of the time.  I started a few large books that have since been idling on a table.  But here's what I did finish:

The Lost Boy  -  Camilla Lackberg

Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd  -  Alan Bradley

The City Baker's Guide to Country Living  -  Louise Miller

Fifty Days of Solitude  -  Doris Grumbach

Bodies in a Bookshop  -  R. T. Campbell

Bear  -  Marian Engel

Turn Right at Machu Picchu  -  Mark Adams

The Princess Bride  -  William Goldman

The Skeleton Road  -  Val McDermid

Hiss and Hers  -  M. C. Beaton

You can see a trend here toward mindless reading, comfort books, things that don't require too much attention.  I started and discarded a couple of books.  Life's too short.  I can't imagine December's list will have much more depth.  We'll see.


  1. If you enjoyed the books, that's what matters! I can hardly believe it is December already!

    1. I know. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I read mostly for entertainment, and that's okay.
      I can't believe it's December either. In addition to Christmas shopping, all three of my grandnieces (4,4 and almost 6) have birthdays within a month of Christmas. Of course, that gives me the opportunity to buy pretty and fun books for them. They all love books, thank goodness!

  2. That is quite a list of books, I don't think I managed that many in November. I didn't realise that one of the girls was almost 6, it seems no time since they were born.

    1. We still have a hard time realizing that my three nieces are old enough to have children, one of whom is now in college!
