Month in Review: November 2018

Happy December!!! I can't believe we are heading into the last month of 2018...where has this year gone? It was a good month, but a slower month reading-wise...and I'm ok with that. I am participating in a buddy reading of Anna Karenina, which started the first week in November and goes until the end of December, so that has certainly cut into my normal reading schedule, but I am so enjoying it. I cannot believe I never picked this book up before - it is actually one of the books that I have had sitting on my shelf for a while, so it totally counts for the #UnReadShelfProject!!! And I'm so happy to hear that Whitney, who is hosting that project, just announced she is running it again in 2019! I am totally participating again next year :) 

I started unpacking some of the boxes of books in my bookroom/office and quickly realized we definitely do not have enough bookshelves for all the books we have. So, we have to decide if we are going to buy more bookshelves or have some built-in. My husband is a big reader, too, so he has quite a collection of books as well. I have a feeling we are going to end up with bookshelves all over the house and I am 100% ok with that!
