It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (November 13): 11/13/17
We're out of the apartment. We've turned in the keys. All that's left is unpacking boxes and bringing the books back from storage. We started this whole crazy moving project a year ago.
Tuesday we had our Girl Scout troop meeting for November. With the time change we moved indoors. We've grown so much that we need two classrooms.
I'm keeping up with Nanowrimo. As of Sunday night, I have 19,400 words.

Thanks! I'm looking forward to reading them.

I enjoy Margaret Drabble's books...and when I saw So glad that you're finally ready to settle into your new home.
Enjoy the week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

That was my first Margert Drabble book. When I read another one, I'll make sure to give it more time. Unfortunately I ran out of renwals and had to cram through it.
I'm so happy to be basically done with moving. Now things are just in storage and we can control the time line for how and when we bring those things home.

How cool to have such a growing troop. I have fond memories of my time as a Girl Scout.
Comment #6: Monday, November 13, 2017 at 23:23:00
The growing troop is good in that we've caught the attention of our council and the school principal. But it's also a ton of work. Rewarding but stressful. I hope our girls grow up to have fond memories of their experience too.

Nice assortment of books. I liked Shelby Holmes Meets Her Match. I also have Sweet Shadows on TBR mountain. I'll be eager to hear what you think of it. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I'm about a third of the way through Shelby Holmes Meets Her Match and I'm enjoying it.

Congrats on NaNo so far! That's great! And also on the move being complete? That must be a good feeling. :)

Thanks re Nanowrimo. I'm having fun getting a story that's been rattling around in my head finally out of my head. The move is done in that the condo is sold. THe house is bought. The apartment is moved out of and the keys are returned. We do still have most of our home library still in storage but there's no deadline for getting them out of there.

Good for you for keeping up with Nanowrimo! I started and then I switched to nanowri2mo (my own invention!) I wish Nano were in a different month because November is so busy for us that I barely have time to write!
Comment #12: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 20:44:00
November is a tough month for writing. But I'm managing to keep up this year.

Wow that is great on both the word count and on being totally out of the apartment. :) Refugee looks like it would hurt my heart to read, but also like a very good book. Have a great week!
Comment #14: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 20:46:00
Refugee is worth reading. Yes it's sad but it's well written, relevant, and not preachy.
Comment #15: Monday, November 13, 2017 at 18:28:27
Nice variety of books this week! Good luck with the unpacking.
Comment #16: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 20:51:00
Thanks. The unpacking is coming along.
Comment #17: Monday, November 13, 2017 at 20:08:07
I have Mrs. Saint and the Defectives on my Kindle and I really need to get to it. Glad to see that you liked it. Nice assortment of books. Happy reading!
Comment #18: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 20:54:00
I hope you get to it soon. It's a great book. Have a good week reading.

Kuddos to you on writing so many words, that is impressive.
Comment #22: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 22:18:00
Thanks. I just passed the halfway point earlier today.
Comment #23: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 06:36:31
Sounds like you are finally winding down as far as the move goes. Congrats on the writing! Have a great week!
Comment #24: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 22:19:00
The move is basically done. We need to bring home our books from storage and we need to save up and buy more furniture. But we're moved in and living comfortably.
Comment #25: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 07:57:16
Have a great reading week.
BOW WOW looks cute.
Have a good week.

Looks like you read another great mix of books last week. Hoping that moving all the books into the house goes smoothly. Would love to see a picture of your shelves once everything is done.
Comment #28: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 22:20:00
Realistically it will be another couple of months before all the books are out of storage. I'm hoping to have sorted through the books before June of next year.
Comment #29: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 22:36:28
I hope you enjoy your new home and have a wonderful reading week. Enjoy your new books and happy reading. 😁❤️
Comment #30: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 22:20:00
Thanks. So far it's been a slow reading week. I've finished two books but I'm hoping to get through more before Saturday.
Comment #31: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 22:38:06
I'm so curious about The Great Shelby Holmes books. They sound like a great introduction to mystery for kids. Wishing you all the best with your writing challenge.
Comment #32: Monday, November 20, 2017 at 22:03:00
The Great Shelby Holmes books are great fun and a good middle grade pastiche.
Comment #33: Thursday, November 23, 2017 at 09:30:26
Oh, a year of the moving journey? Yikes! And I hope you enjoy Sweet Shadows! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #34: Monday, November 26, 2017 at 20:55:00
Yup. For the first half we thought we were moving somewhere else but those plans fell through. We changed gears and moved locally. But it was still a year of packing, cleaning, decluttering. And now we're slowly unpacking and figuring out what new furniture we need.
