Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope you are all well? November has been a cold and dark month here in the UK! However despite the weather, I spent a wonderful weekend on the south coast celebrating my mum’s and stepdad’s birthdays. I have also got stuck into the Pathways to Ministry course – a really interesting and thought provoking course, but that does involve quite a bit of reading. Here is what else I have managed to read:
Fiction: 0 Non-Fiction: 1
My one and only book finished in November was Christian non-fiction Life of the Beloved by Henri J. M. Nouwen, which I read for my church’s book club. I thought it was a well-written and inspiring guide, that was a good boost for me living in a majoritively secular society myself.
Pick of the Month: Life of the Beloved
I would usually be pretty down on myself for finishing just one book, however I know I have actually been reading a lot but just not finishing them! I have made big progress through some very long books: The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas and 90 Days Through the New Testament by Ron Rhodes (30 days left!). Plus I am over 3/4’s of the way through Innocence by Dean Koontz and I have started re-reading The Screwtape Letters by C S Lewis, which is the next book for my church’s book club.
In December, I am looking forward to finishing a lot of these books, breaking up from work for the holidays and celebrating Christmas; of course!
What did you do and read in November? What are your plans for December?
