What’s the Status?

Happy November to you! I’m sitting here typing at 7:00 and it’s so dark outside. I really like Fall but do not like it when Daylight Savings Time ends. I just feel like my whole day is already gone. Anyway, let’s talk about books read, challenges and what’s ahead.

October was a good reading month although I have kind of felt like I’ve been reading the same books. I finished four books: Midwinter Blood, Not Always A Saint, Tricks and No One Gets Out Alive. Hopefully some reviews on those to come.

Of those, one was a book in translation and two were for challenges. I’m in the middle of a couple of other books now but I’ll get to those in another post.

In November I’m really looking forward to participating in the German Literature reading challenge and Nonfiction November! I went to the library yesterday to pick up several holds I had and some of them are perfect for this reading adventure. I will do a post just on Nonfiction November soon to tell you about those books.

I’ve already started The Caretaker and I’m intrigued.

I’m looking forward to hopefully a lot of good and different types of reads in this month. Overall I’m happy with where my reading has taken me so far this year but I was hoping to have read more books and it looks like I’m around 44 books read this year so far. It’s not about the number right? How about you, how do you see the rest of your reading year?
