When I sat down to write this post, I couldn’t even remember what books were on my original reading list! Let’s just say I got a bit distracted along the way. I listened to two audio books: Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed and In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson (both brought to my attention by Shannon at River City Reading). I also started Between Gods, a memoir by Canadian author, Alison Pick.
Here’s a quick of summary of where I’m at with my original book list:
Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand – Finished.
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai – Still waiting for the audio book to come in at two different libraries. Might just have to get the print book.
The Map Thief by Michael Blanding – To be read. Not likely for this event.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler – Somehow I missed the hold at the library and it expired. Oy vey!
Into the Blizzard by Michael Winter – DNF: The narrative style was difficult to follow. I gave up after about 30 pages.

Eighty Days: Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland’s History-Making Race Around the World by Matthew Goodman (My Book Strings)
Books, Baguettes & Bedbugs: The Left Bank World of Shakespeare & Co by Jeremy Mercer (Book Addicted Blonde)

How to Be a Victorian by Ruth Goodman (Estella’s Revenge)
Where did the month go? How’s your Nonfiction November going? What great books did you read (or listen to)?
