November Book Report

November 2021
I finished 16 books last month.

A quote from this month's reading:

"There is no point spending an entire life trying to win the love you didn't feel when you needed it. You sometimes just have to let go of an old story and start your own. Give yourself some love. You can't change the past. You can't change other people. You can change you though. You narrate this story. So start to write a new chapter." --The Comfort Book by Matt Haig (p. 57)

Here is my progress toward various goals and challenges:

I participated in Nonfiction November which was fun. I read lots of blog posts about what nonfiction other folks are reading and offered my own recommendations. I also added a ton of books to my TBR!

I have started thinking about reading plans for 2022 and am considering, among other things, a mini-reading-intensive which is a cool idea I learned about from Following the Thread.
