My November Reads

Simply put, my November reading reflected my need to retreat, for the most part, into kinder and gentler places. I am loving my immersion into the Fairacre series by Miss Read, and am enjoying reading anything that Victoria Connelly has written. But I also loved listening to the audiobook version of Trevor Noah’s book about growing up under apartheit in South Africa–a book which the New York Times called, in their November review, “a love letter to the author’s remarkable mother.”  I plan to continue my reading retreat into more uplifting books for the time being since the days here in the Pacific Northwest are growing colder and darker, and because the world out there seems particularly brutal and chaotic right now.

    Kristen, me too!

    Kelly, it’s a book that’s definitely worth reading, but I’d recommend the audiobook version because he does such a terrific job with his narration.

    Glad to hear that Trevor Noah’s book is good on audio. I have a credit on Audible, so I’ll download it next!

    It’s cold (freezing, actually!), but sunny here in the Midwest. My reading has been pretty spotty since the election and I should probably just find some comfort reads (Mitford series, perhaps) to take my mind off the distressing news of our world. The holiday season is here in full force and work is very busy, so I only read for a little bit each night. Counting the days until retirement… Of course, we may be forced to eat cat food. 😉
