There’s snow on the ground in Wisconsin, which means winter, for, like, the next six months. Sigh.
Good thing I have reading and writing to keep me busy!
Here’s a look at my November! Where did it go, exactly??
I read five books:
- All the Lives We Never Lived by Anuradha Roy
- Heart Berries: A Memoir by Terese Marie Mailhot
- I’m Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya
- My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite – Read my review!
- When a Bulbul Sings by Hawaa Ayoub – Read my review!
I wrote three reviews:
- Review of Washington Black by Esi Edugyan
- Review of My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
- Review of Go Together: How the Concept of Ubuntu Will Change How You Live, Work, and Lead by Shola Richards
I also posted:
I was able to travel to Atlanta for the annual National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA) conference at which my office exhibits every year. This is my favorite conference of the year where I get to see old friends, make new ones, and learn about the important work of the amazing attendees. Next year: San Francisco!
Last, I got word that my essay on the role of libraries in the leadership development of women girls was accepted and will be published in an upcoming ebook entitled The Time is Now: Feminist Leadership in a New Era. The book will be published by the Global Network of UNESCO Chairs on Gender during the first quarter of 2019.
Here’s a look ahead to December!
Books in progress:

2018 Reading Challenge update:
My goal was to read 30 books this year and so far, I have surpassed that goal and have read 48 books! This month I should reach 50, which I am really happy about. How did you do on your reading goals?
What are your December reading and writing plans??
