Here is the challenge for the month: November is the best month of the year. Read a fun book!
Report for October: When I said a book concerning America, I really meant that as broadly as possible. In other words, I counted books set in America. :)
So my "American" books were:
Love Finds You in Hershey, Pennsylvania - Cerella Sechrist (which was okay) Love Finds You in Snowball, Arkansas - Sandra D. Bricker (pretty fun) Time and the Hour - Faith Baldwin (love her style for some reason I haven't pinpointed yet) I Just Got a Letter from Allyson Pringle - Anya Bateman (cute) The Makeover of James Orville Wickenbee - Anya Bateman (loved it) Fat Cat - Robin Brande (okay) Consider Lily - Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt (okay) My nonfiction books were:
Home: A Memoir of My Early Years - Julie Andrews Edwards (very good) Through His Eyes - Virginia H. Pearce (excellent!)
My other books were:
Marshmallows for Breakfast - Dorothy Koomson (thought-provoking. Difficult in some parts. Glad I read it.) Suspense and Sensibility - Carrie Bebris (part of a Mr. and Mrs. Darcy mystery series. Fun.) Amrita - Banana Yoshimoto (my first Japanese book in a long time. Interesting, but...)
All in all, it was a pretty interesting reading month. I read a lot of books that were out of my usual zone. It was broadening in a lot of ways, but also reminded me why I tend to read the way I do...
