I feel like I haven’t posted on here in forever! Well, it’s been about a month, which I think is the longest I’ve gone without posting since I started this blog. At the end of October I was so excited that I only had 11 books (and as many weeks) to finish my 2009 book list.

No, my blogging absence isn’t because I’ve been ferociously reading. And, sadly, neither is it not due to the completion of NaNoWriMo (but congrats to my friend Charlotte who did do it!) I’ve just been busy trying to make (yes, make) all our Christmas presents, plan and execute a 1st birthday party for my little man, and traveling for Thanksgiving.

Throughout the month I felt like I didn’t get much, if any, reading done, but I did!

I finished…

  • Emma (Jane Austen) – Technically, I think I finished this at the end of October, but I feel like it was November since I watched a few Emma adaptations.
  • Arms & the Man (George Bernard Shaw) – Funny. Sometimes laugh out loud funny. It’s a play, so it was a quick read.
  • Sacred Chaos (Tricia Rhodes) – Good. Making the chaos sacred. Much needed.
  • Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life (Don Whitney) – It’s done, because my class is done.
  • The Measure of a Lady (Deeanne Gist) – A fou-fou read. I needed something to get me through all the nonfiction. It was a less than 24-hour read…it had me sitting in the bathroom “brushing my teeth” after my husband went to bed.

Now I’m reading…

  • God is the Gospel (John Piper) – I started this on the drive to visit my family for Thanksgiving. I don’t think it should take too long. So far it’s simple, digestible, and good.
  • The Journals of Jim Elliot (edited by Elisabeth Elliot) – I thought this would be a pretty quick read given it’s simply journal entries, so far it hasn’t been. Do keep in mind I’ve picked it up all of twice.
  • The Little Prince (Antoine De Saint-Exupery) – Totally forgot I even had this on my list for November. I don’t know if I’ll read it or not this month. We’ll see.
