November was rough so getting any reading done at all was an accomplishment! Nanowrimo consumed nearly all my spare time & dealing with all kinds of stressful life, health, & work issues used up the rest of my energy. I wasn‘t able to participate much in any of the November challenges but I hope December will be better! My #FavoriteNovemberRead was the tagged book, much to my surprise. #GratefulReads #NamasteNovember #NovStats

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I hope you are feeling better ❤️❤️❤️ 5d

#GratefulReads - Black In the Title: Once I had seen the movie, I didn‘t think about coming back to the book. I don‘t know why? I think that I felt satisfied with knowing this story. Litsy has changed my mind... now I would like to dig a little deeper so maybe this will be a selection for October 2020 reading.

#GratefulReads - Preferred Format: Paper, printed pages - vulnerable to water, sand, Cheetos-stained fingers and fire...you guessed it, regular books! Regular books - is that an appropriate description? Hmm...paper books - words inked on paper. Books that are heavy and cumbersome to carry around day-to-day. Books that challenge one‘s decision-making acuity when trying to choose just one or two to take on vacation.👇🏽

Nute I like them no matter what the challenge is!
BTW...after saying all of that, I did buy a whole lotta ebooks last night as part of the Black Friday sale on Amazon Kindle.🥴

Sace I picked up the term "dead tree" from someone on LibraryThing. I feel like I got it from @Avanders or @rabbitprincess but I could be misremembering. 6d

Decent month. I read a total of 8 books
1 fiction, 2 historical fiction, 5 mysteries. 2of the mysteries were audio books.
Given my crazy month, it is #Amazing I read this month!
Favorite book: November Road

Eggs Great books! Great reading month👏🏻 6d
Cinfhen What did you think of 6d
kspenmoll @Cinfhen Wonderful character development, kept me guessing, really had clue about ending or who was responsible for what. This predates The Scholar which I read first. Because I am a chicken( thrillers keep me up so avoid them) it‘s hard to gauge for others but it was suspenseful for me. (edited) 6d

OriginalCyn620 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 6d
Cinfhen I started on audio but it was confusing so I‘m waiting for my library request. It seems like a well written “thriller” ~ I‘m looking forward to reading it. 6d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 6d
kspenmoll @Cinfhen It is a complex book, many layers, characters seemingly not connected in the beginning. I read the Scholar, her second book first (no audio) which provided some background on the characters. 6d
Cinfhen Should I go that route as well?? 6d
kspenmoll @Cinfhen I think The Ruin might be fine in book form-That‘s what I did with the scholar. The audio/The Ruin,I had to repeat chapters some times To figure out what was going on. I am thinking this author is better as a book. So start with The Ruin when you get it. (edited) 4d
Cinfhen Thanks 🙏🏼 that‘s the plan!! 4d

November was a good reading month, although I‘m hard-pressed to select a #favoriteNovemberRead. The two I‘ve been talking about the most are the tagged book from the #catherbuddyread and Moby Duck b/c of the issues it raises. #gratefulreads @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

November was a good month otherwise, but I fell behind in my reading life. I started many books but only finished a few. Tagged book was my #favorite of the lot.
-The Mistletoe Matchmaker (Hayes-McCoy) 🌲🇮🇪
-Searching for Sylvia Lee (Kwok) 🇳🇱
-Murder on the Half Shelf (Barrett) 🐈
-Women Talking (Toews) 👩‍👧‍👧

Susanita @OriginalCyn620 I got to pet her too! Very soft-like petting a cotton ball. 6d

I have read some amazing books this month thanks to @rsteve388 and @Clwojick hosting #NFNov. The book pictured is by far my favorite of the month though. Even if you are not a fan of graphic novels, you should still read this book. It will teach you things, it will break your heart, and it will give you hope that humanity can be better.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Just finished this today. I agree, it‘s just so good. And a history lesson we all need! 6d
