My Newest Challenge

images.jpgYes, this is the month I put up or shut up and at least dabble in a few of the books I have recently suggested for others to read. My selection  process was simple: I went back through the last two months worth of suggestions and listed all the titles I found readily available to me either on my bookshelf or on my digital reading stack. Then I trimmed the list down to just twenty titles and they are now my November 2017 Reading Pool.

Some are fat, others are short, a little non-fiction as well as some very recent publications. All in all it looks like I will come out of the month with more fun and enlightenment than I probably deserve.

Which titles from this list might you be adding to your upcoming reading?

  1. The Salmon of Doubt – Douglas Adams
  2. Poetry Will Save Your Life – Jill Bialosky
