November 2019 Wrap Up

/ posted in: Reading

 

I read  15 books  in November.  It was Nonfiction November so here are the nonfiction books I read.

Towards the end of the month some fiction started slipping in there too.

The books I read were:

  •  2 audiobooks
  • Set in the U.S., England, and China

What were my favorites?

Despite believing it all the way through the book, Adharanand Finn is not an Indian man.  He is the child of white British hippies who gave their kids Sanskrit names.  I was listening to the audiobook and was quite confused when I saw a picture of a white guy when I logged it on Goodreads.  

 

What I’ve read so far in 2019:

  • Righteous by Joe Ide
  • Buttermilk Graffiti by Edward Lee
  • The Class by Heather Won Tesoriero
  • North by Scott and Jenny Jurek
  • Internment by Samira Ahmed
  • Tikka Chance on Me by Suleikha Snyder
  • Mrs. Martin’s Incomparable Adventure by Courtney Milan
  • The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan
  • Bury What We Cannot Take by Jean Kwok
  • Instant Indian by Rinku Bhattacharya
  • The True Queen by Zen Cho
  • Professor Chandra Follows His Bliss by Rajeev Balasubramanyam

I’m aiming for 21-30 books to be at the tapir level.  19/21 so far.  Only 1 month left.  I can do this!
