I literally finished reading the last book I'd committed to read in October on November 29—of course, I haven't had a chance to write anything about it, much less send the author the Q's for him to A. Still, I'm on the verge of catching up. Sort of. That aside, November saw me completing 8,087 pages over 31 books with an average rating of 3.45. That's pretty positive—I've had better months rating-wise, but I'll take a month of plenty of good books with a couple of highlights any day. I'm still behind on my writing, but not as much as I expected to be. I'm calling this a decent month all things considered.

 

Anyway, here's what happened here in November.
