I jumped into Nonfiction November early, reading The Body by Bill Bryson last week and Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth by Sarah Smarsh, The Secret Wisdom of Nature by Peter Wohlleben, and The Village Effect: Why Face-to-Face Contact is Good for Our Health, Happiness, Learning, and Longevity by Susan Pinker this week.
I've also been busy reading and reviewing Cybils picture books. Here are the books I've read and reviewed in October:
I'm reading How Your Story Sets You Free, The Art of Noticing, and Writing Down the Bones.
October is always my most bookish month, with the Cybils, Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon, and the Texas Book Festival. This year, the readathon was the same day as the book festival, so that was a bit of a challenge, but it all worked out just fine.
My Texas Book Festival post will go live a week from Wednesday here.
My Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon post is here.
We had a wonderful time at my granddaughter Annie's fourth birthday party in Kemah. Her Aunt Susie and I took a selfie with Annie when we rode the train, and my daughter-in-law snapped this picture of me on the merry-go-round. So much fun.
