October's Reading, November's Plans


October was a busy reading month, and the library duedates for November are arriving fast and fierce. 


Surely I'm not the only one making lists of what to read in 2021?


MustReadEverything authors? Thomas King's Indians on Vacation


Rereading? Mariko Tamaki's This One Summer (Illus. Jillian Tamaki).


New-to-me? Daniel Polansky's The Seventh Perfection.


Short stories? Walter Mosley's The Awkward Black Man.


Debut? Eva Crocker's All I Ask.


Drama? August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean.


Dystopia? Catherine Hernandez's Crosshairs.


In quiet moments? Kamila Shamsie's Home Fire.


In extended afternoons? Paul Ortiz's An African American and Latinx history of the United States


I'm also busy playing BINGO for Margaret Atwood Reading Month in November too!


And I've recently finished the last of the 123 short stories in my Mavis Gallant reading project, which launched in 2017. Of course all the posts are online, so even if you're late to the party, you can join in, whenever you wish.


How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
