Sunday Post #20, Windy

The Sunday Post is hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday fun, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme.

     October finished horribly fast. I had so many reading plans but at the end I read hardly 5 books. I still have 3 days till the end of the month, so I might finish some books that I started.
     November is also bringing some challenges and the biggest is Nonfiction November hosted by abookolive and Non Fic Books (Olive's announcement video). The idea of Nonfiction November is to read more nonfiction in November than you normally would. Since I hardly read any non-fiction, 4 or 5 books would be a great achievement. I am still looking through my shelves to pick up something that correlate to the following categories: 1. Home 2. Substance 3. Love 4. Scholarship
    Today the weather has changed drastically. Although the sun is shining, the storm wind is keeping everyone at home as it is not possible to walk without catching your breath. It is high time  for me to do some catch up activities on blog.

  1. I hope you can finish some books, there are still a few days left, that is true :) the non-fiction challenge sounds great! We are having nasty weather as well, getting pretty cold. Oh well, it is almost November, after all :p

  2. October has really flown by hasn't it?! Enjoy your new books and the week ahead. :)

    Sorry to hear that you are still trying to get used tho the new schedule changes. I am not one that does well with changes, so I completely understand. Hopefully it will get better for you. I hope that you enjoy the new books and happy reading. :)

  3. Oh I loved Beautiful disaster! I don't read much nonfiction but when I do its almost always true crime. I read Columbine and it was a really well written book. It includes so much information from so many different angles.
    Have a great week!
