Sunday Salon: November 10, 2019

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz has taken over running The Sunday Salon.

My life in books over the past week: 

    Challenge progress:
    • A to Z Reading--I have read books with titles for 22 letters so far: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, and W.
    • Diversity Reading Challenge--I have read 59 books.
    • Literary Escapes--I have read books set in 37 states so far, adding Arkansas and Tennessee in the past week. I have read in 55 countries so far, adding none in the past week.
    • Motif Reading Challenge--The November motif is "Seasons, weather, and elements" 
    • Non-fiction--I have read 25 books so far.
    Completed challenges:
    • My Own Books--I read 21 books off my shelves from March 15 to May 15, 2019.
    • Big Book Challenge--I read 8 books over 400 pages during the summer.
    • YA Award Winners--I have read all 11 winners
    My life outside books:
    Health: Well, I am happy to report that I am (mostly) healthy again. I went from a sore throat and fever to laryngitis/sexy voice for about 5 days. Boy that made work difficult as my job involves lots of talking with teachers.

    I've been taking it easy this past week since I haven't been feeling well, but it means my reading has been good. I took a good long look at my challenges this weekend since I realize we're getting to the end of 2019 (!). So, I'd love input from all of you.
