HA! WP just prompted me to share 5 things I’m good at…
- Maintaining a passion for writing letters
- Being a pie ambassador
- Loving on the dogs
- Keeping up with this blog, even if inconsistently
- Picking myself back up when I fall
Monthly Recap Time! November
- 5 books; 91 for the year
- 1317 pages, 21.75 hours | 25775 total pages, 217.8 hours for the year so far
I continue to have a flailing ability to focus on reading. I have managed to do more audiobooking due to being in a car more than ever, commuting to the J-O-B. It’s been cold and the old dog has been off & on with wanting to walk so that has diminished, AND!!!
EXCITING NEWS! We got another dog! Who is *not* leash-trained so managing an audiobook/walk is a future goal with this boy:
His name is Copper. He is a 3 yo Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. Esther is not amused…
I started an abandonning of more books lately, or acquired-and-not-even-started!! library books lately, … you may not even be able to call me a “reader”. Oh well, I still managed 5 titles, short as one might be. I finished the Bookclub pick (Into the Abyss) and did OK on adding in some Nonfiction, so I am reasonably satisfied with the results.
Into the Abyss, which I convinced club to read because it was #NonfictionNovember (yay me!) also gave me a pie mention which was delightful to encounter.
…, so he asked me if I would make pies out of them.~80% in when sharing about Paul peeling a bunch of apples.
Write For Your Life was my favorite. It would be a good gift if you have a letter-writer/reader in your life.
and finally, we come to December. I know blogging has been hit or miss with me but I do love to track my books. The TOB Long List has been out a few weeks now and the Short List should be any day; I hope I get more excited but I do not think I will be as obsessed with the Tournament as much in 2023, what a new family member to work with and distract from sitting around and, well. SITTING. He is high energy!
What was YOUR favorite book of November? Especially NONFICTION so I can add to my list for next year.
Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Jolly Jolabokaflod!!!

My favorite book of November is definitely Now Is Not the Time to Panic (and you know why if you’ve read my review of Nov. 22!)
Cool. Yes, very much looking forward to this. Getting great reviews from readers I admire.
Look at the sweet face Copper has! Hopefully Esther comes around.
How about a nonfiction book I started in November but haven’t quite finished yet? Ross Gay’s Inciting Joy. Essays. So very very good!
My indie bookstore just featured that as ON SPECIAL. Definitely a positive reading choice.
My favorite books of November were Last Witnesses, a collection of extraordinarily sad memories of children from World War II, and What If? 2, a very funny science book. Two books on completely opposite sides of the emotional spectrum.
You are a gifted letter writer. I think I need to get you a letter in the mail. There has been a lot of drama here and I might have gotten behind and I might owe you a letter.
Oh Deb! thank you and we’ll get on another rotation eventually, I hope. (I was thinking I owe YOU a letter!)
Copper is so cuuuuute omg!! (I hope this comment posts, as the last one I tried leave did not.
I see your comment! Yes, Copper is adorable. High Energy, too! EEEK. I think it will be awesome, or should I just say it is already? LOL (he came to us with Kennel Cough and it is SUCH a pain trying to keep him from Esther so she doesn’t get it….) Thank you, watch your mail. 😀
I love your list of five things you’re good at!
My favorite books of November were The Book of Hope by Jane Goodall (on audio) and The Bullet That Missed by Richard Osman on paper.
Merry Christmas, Care!
