100 Books: November Update

I am limping along barely reading to finish out the year.  I talked a good game at the start of the month, but things got away from me.  I read 4 books:

4.  Always Put in a Recipe and Other Tips for Living from Iowa's Best Known Homemaker by Evelyn Birkby:  A collection of this writer's favorite newspaper columns from 1949 on-- it is precious and a quick read.

3.  Bleeder by Shelby Smoak:  He is a hemophiliac who contracted AIDS in his teens in the late 80s-- a literary memoir.

2.  Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand:  This was the most perfect Veteran's Day read ever.

1.  Anne Frank: The Biography by Melissa Mueller:  Um.  Fascinating.  Utterly fascinating.

Baby crying-- gotta go.  But for those playing along at home, we are up to 109.
