November is over, which means it's time for my reading results. I really did not finish very many books this month, and I started new ones in spite of my aim to not do that. I'm apparently quite bad at committing to anything I want to do. So, without further ado, here are my results.

I only finished 5 books in November, but that comes as a surprise to no one (at least not to me, I guess it still might surprise you). I knew I wouldn't get many books read in November because I was trying to do NaNoWriMo (which I failed miserably, but that's also okay), and I also did BookBlogWriMo (which I succeeded at because I posted every single day's prompts, even if we did get a late start.) I also got stuff set up for a holiday spotlight marathon that is starting today, and got several of those posts built for easy sharing throughout the month, and all of those things took time away from reading. I'll do better in December. - Katie


  1. How do you read so many books at the same time? I can only do like 3 at the most.

    1. I tend to focus on just one or two (some of these books have been on my currently reading list for almost a year, and I mostly don't touch them, but they're started and I still know where I'm at in the story.) They're also all different genres and in different settings, so it's not hard keeping those things straight for me. I also have a pretty good memory (and reading lots of books at one time might actually help me keep my memory sharp.) - Katie
