How is it November 2nd already? A more robust month due to the read-a-thon, but still nowhere near my unemployed-living-in-a-camper-reading-12-books-a-month rate.

The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway

The Pearl Diver by Jeff Talarigo. This one gets my vote for the best book I read last month.

Fourth Uncle in the Mountain: The Remarkable Legacy of a Buddhist Itinerant Doctor in Vietnam by Quang Van Nguyen

Cork Boat by John Pollack

Che’s Chevrolet, Fidel’s Oldsmobile: On the Road in Cuba by Richard Schweid

The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty by Peter Singer

Hearing Birds Fly: A Nomadic Year in Mongolia By Louisa Waugh. This was also outstanding.

Godmother: The Secret Cinderella Story by Carolyn Turgeon. Some fluffy fantasy for Halloween.

Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded by Simon Winchester. I finally finished this book. I’ve been really slowly working on it for months. It was good, but I just couldn’t get into it for long stretches of time.
