November was a slow reading month for me. I really wanted to participate in Nonfiction November, but in order to do so I had to slow things down. I tend to read nonfiction more slowly than my usual reading speed, and I also spent a lot of time blogging to keep up with the NN blog prompts! Not to mention some extra long days in the office that kept me away from my books. 🙂 I learned a lot and am really glad I did it, even though I only got through three books this month.
Here they are!
