Nov 302011
 

Like the last few months, November went quick. It’s now less than a month from Christmas.

Personally, my November was very busy. I’ve worked a lot of overtime. But I was rewarded by having my position made permanent, instead of being on a contract. I also decided to get a new car, and spent some time looking around. I am hoping to pick one up by the end of this week, if all goes well.

The blog surpassed a few more follower milestones. There are now well over 900 followers via GFC alone. And I’m sure you saw a bunch of blogs posting about GFC changes. That will not affect Workaday Reads since I am hosted by Blogger. And very happily so.

Books read:
In November – 12
Year-to-date – 210

Posted in November:
Reviews – 14
Discussion posts – Reading Challenges, Reading Challenge Prizes
Author interviews – Naomi Clark, Mike Mullin
Author guest posts – Emlyn Chand

Challenge Status:
**Note, I only count reviews that are posted. If a book is read but a review isn’t posted, then it’s not included until it is posted.**
In Death Challenge – 6 read – no change this month

Canadian Book Challenge 5 – 10/13 – 3 read this month
I have no challenges left that end in 2011. The In Death challenge is perpetual, and the Canadian Book challenge goes until June 30, 2012.

What’s coming in December?

– The 25 Days of Jubilation blog tour will be making a presence here on Dec 19. I will be talking about my favourite books of the year, and offering a great giveaway.

– I have at least one other giveaway going on during the month.

– I will announce the reading challenges I will be participating in.

– There will be several authors stopping by with interviews and guest posts.

– And of course, there will be book reviews.
