Literary Life: November in Review

Happy thanksgiving to any American’s reading. May your Turkey be large and your complementary dishes plentiful.

November has been a grand month, but I cannot deny I am rather excited for December. Along with a Christmas party, a trip to Berlin and mini outings it is going to be rather grand.

I streamlined my bookshelf this month, which led to a clear out (most of which I can’t remember, so clearly this was a good move) and a book buying ban.
