Best Book Read in November:  Heist Society by Ally Carter

Best book was a tough call since I'm reading lots of books that have had starred reviews and/or appeared on a "Best of 2010" list this month.  But, I've been hawking this ever since my intern forced me to read it.  It makes you want to know more about another aspect of the Holocaust, even though that probably was not the intention.

  Holiday Bookaday is much like summer Bookaday. You read a book each day you are not at work during the winter holidays and you tweet about it using hashtag bookaday. My break starts on December 18 and ends January 2 which gives me 16 days.  This list represents my plans, but you know how that goes!

Do you have any holiday reading plans?

  1. I have a stack of books for my Christmas break. I won't be writing or editing during the week of Christmas so I need something to ply away the time with my hopefully new ereader (I'm hoping someone gifts me with one).


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
