Peter and Max: A Fables Novel by Bill Willingham and Steve Leialoha — I adore the Fables comic series and this novel is just as good…  Can’t wait to finish it!  Now if only I could find the time.

It was a good selection of  books.  All 7 of my attempted reads were good enough to finish.

Challenges Completed (1)

Contemporary Romance


This month was a dismal failure.  I got so busy at work, at home, and traveling that I just didn’t get much read.  I’ve been averaging 15 books a month, so 7 is bad.  I have about 30 books to read for December if I’m going to finish my main reading challenges.  I have given up completely on three of them, but I really want to cross the finish line for the others.  Hopefully!  I have some reading time blocked out in December so I can tackle some of those. 

Other than that, November was a full month.  I got most of my Christmas cards made.  That’s right, I’m making homemade Christmas cards this year.  I had a great Stampin’ Up class with some new ideas to try out.  But the big event was traveling back to Indiana for Thanksgiving.  I finished a book on the plane going there and a book on the plane coming back.  The rest of the time was spent hanging with my boys, friends, and family.  We had packed days with activities and reconnecting with friends.  I was a bit disappointed with some of the people I thought were friends.  But I did get to see many others and we had a great time.
