What I Read and Acquired in November (It's less shocking than October)


November has come to an end. Can you believe it? I can't. This year has flown by.

Just as I did last month, I am sharing a list of the books I read and acquired this month. The acquisition list is much less daunting than my October list. Remember that? It's probably best not to.

Here we go...

What I read in November

  • The Wonder by Emma Donoghue - started at the end of October and finished in November

  • Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton - savored this slowly through October and the first part of November

  • Deep Work by Cal Newport - purchased at Barnes & Noble after seeing Cal Newport’s TEDx talk about quitting social media

  • Burning Woman by Lucy Pearce

  • We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

  • Tribe by Sebastian Junger - borrowed from the library; my local book club selection for November

  • The Tourist by Robert Dickinson

I also rediscovered my love of comic books and read these...

  • Heart and Brain: Gut Instincts by The Awkward Yeti

  • Phoebe and Her Unicorn by Dana Simpson

  • Unicorn on a Roll by Dana Simpson
