The month just seemed to stretch and I  got lots of books read – for me.

New to me authors:

Patience Griffin

Top Book for October

I am picking this one because it just had that point of difference and the magic of story.

A Book that Surprised me.

It took me a little while to worm myself inside this book and family, but once there I was in there rooting for this immigrant family. And while it was about immigrant experience it was really universal and applicable to us all.

Looking forward to reading in November

This one just arrived and no doubt I’ll find space somewhere to read it in November.

Review of Reading Goals September

I wanted to concentrate on actual books on my bookshelf and I picked five that I highlighted in a post and I read them all. As well as a few others. Nine of the sixteen I read came off my actual shelf. I was especially happy to finally pick up and read the first two Sue Barton books and I hope to read more at some point. I have about six of them.

I also worked out how to remember where I picked up a book recommendation by noting it on Goodreads. I know not everyone uses Goodreads but I prefer it to noting something in a notebook and while it is a little clumsy the way you note on Goodreads where you picked up the recommendation it works and its how I’ll go from now on.

Goodreads records So as I write this post I am reading Cottage by the Sea and I know I picked up on this book from the podcast Currently Reading and it was Meredith who mentioned it. And… I am really enjoying it.

Main Reading Goals for November

*Books on Kindle – This month I want to focus on Kindle books, pick five I want to read and maybe a few more as well.

  1. Great job! I’m so glad to see that Once Upon a Wardrobe was your favorite for the month as I have that coming up on my reading list. Yay for getting the books off your shelf read and good luck with your Kindle reads! My Kindle is essentially a black hole for books unless they’re for review.

  2. Wow you’re a book champ 16 books. I think I may have read one or two. Sorry I’ve been awol from the blogs for awhile but I was diagnosed with an inner ear disorder that causes me to be dizzy. I’m seeing a specialist but not until the end of the month.

  3. What a lovely set of books you read. Several look very interesting. Love your idea of listing where the recommendation came from. Often, tho, by the time I get a book from the library. I forget where I learned about it! happy reading in November.
