Bookends: November 2022

I read long ago that if you take a blogging break, there’s no need even to mention it when you return, so this is me not mentioning it.

November was a lovely reading month! I have been reading a lot of audiobooks and e-books, which is a big change from my all-hardcovers-all-the-time policy of old. I have been loving the audiobooks (reading while getting chores done or driving people around is super awesome, and I’m strangely comforted by hearing a narrator take a breath or get a drink of water) and ruining my eyesight by reading my e-reader in the dark, but I’m going to try to reacquaint myself with the joy of sitting down with a nice, heavy, hardcover in December.

November’s Completed Books:

  • The Book of Accidents by Chuck Wendig
  • And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

To-Read for December:

The plan for December is to make time to work on my birthday books (my spouse has been getting me five library books from my TBR for my birthday for the past 20 years or so, which I only recently realized is quite romantic), read my monthly Agatha Christie, finish some books from my November list, chip away a little more at the books in the Harry Bosch universe, and maybe have some surprise books in there, too, for the sake of spontaneity.
