I've taken the liberty of copying Michael's usual post:

"Here's how this works - list a book you are currently reading or just recently read on your Kindle (insert the product link using the little button above the text box in the discussion forum so others can find it), whether you would recommend it, did you get it free, and anything else you would care to share.

And here's my standard continuation of each month's request for prior participants in the poll: if you like or dislike a title you have read, in addition to telling us about it in this informal poll, how about writing a book review on the Amazon website? The review will certainly last and be visible a lot longer than this poll will. If you're like me, you look at the customer reviews in order to see if you want to investigate a book further. Since we are all a little community here, and while I realize each review is each person's opinion and we may not like the same thing, I know your friends and online discussion neighbors would appreciate your honest assessment of the likes and dislikes without providing a spoiler - I know I would! Your reviews don't need to be a long dissertation of the book, I like to keep them short, sweet, and (hopefully) to the point.

Anyway, that's all for now. Have a great November!"

And thanks to Michael for starting this thread almost every month.

Thanks for starting November Charlene.

Finished Bent Road: A Novel by Lori Roy. It's prairie gothic and I liked it a lot.

Just started Death and the Penguin (Melville International Crime) by Andrey Kurkov and expect it will be very entertaining. In anticipation of that have also purchased the sequel Penguin Lost (Melville International Crime).

This month's first read is going to be Hell's Kitchen (The Long Journey of Joslin de Lay). I admit to having been very skeptical about this series when I first saw them, but after reading the first 2, I find them very enjoyable and with just the right medieval 'flavor'. This one is #3.

Reading Wool Omnibus Edition (Wool 1 - 5). I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm enjoying it. Only about 10% in.

I read Through a Glass Darkly about a million years ago. I loved it. I'm currently reading Heart of Ice (A Triple Threat Novel) which was a Kindle Daily Deal a while ago. It's okay, not great. Probably not worth $11.99, though.

There is a Kindle version of Through a Glass Darkly for $4.39. The one above is an audible version.

Just finished The Admirals: Nimitz, Halsey, Leahy, and King--The Five-Star Admirals Who Won the War at Sea, by Walter Borneman. Interesting bios of the top admirals during WWII compares diverse personalities with shared values instilled by their service in the US Navy. Interesting read.

Now I'm reading The Racketeer, by John Grisham. Great storytelling so far.

There is No Otherwise
I've been reading this western short story, free today. It's a good moody western with strong emotional drive.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 1, 2012 7:00:24 PM PDT
No contest. My vote is for Boy's Life. Plus, it's only $2.99! Great book, though. Through a Glass Darkly is a long book, so you can save it for later.

The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl

This is my Lending Library choice for November. Pretty good so far. Never heard the term "dust pneumonia' used before...

I loved the giver. Read it in 4th grade for the first time, and have read it at least 5 other times since. That's saying something, as I rarely ever reread books.

I'm currently working through Operation Mincemeat. I got it a while back, and just hadn't gotten around to it. It is *fascinating*, and I can't stop telling my mom and husband about parts of it.

I'm reading America Rising. It is good, but I'm having a little trouble keeping up with who's who in all the characters. I've had to backtrack a couple of times to keep it straight. I'm only about 10% into so far.

My pastor is doing a Bible Study based on The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future. I haven't read it, and can't decide if I want to. Any comments about it from someone who has read it? Is it commentary/documentary style or written as a novel?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 1, 2012 8:56:57 PM PDT
fourthdaymom, my pastor also referred to The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future several times over a couple of weeks which encouraged me to read the book this last summer. While written as a novel, there is definitely much to seriously reflect on regarding what we have been taught in our religious communities and the state of our country today. Enjoyable reading that, months later still often enters my thoughts, making me focus on being even more diligent to so many of our current situations.

Thanks, Monica. I've had a couple of friends tell me it is a good book, and some of the people at church have read it and are passing around a couple of books. But when I look at the reviews, I lose some of my enthusiasm for the book. But I have a tendency to read reviews beginning with the lowest ratings. I guess I need to just quit looking at the reviews and read the book with an open mind.

Today will finish up both Shogun and It. Haven't decided my next direction, though it's likely to be Argo: How the CIA and Hollywood Pulled Off the Most Audacious Rescue in History and I will continue on with Clavell, reading Tai-Pan.

And my thanks to Charlene, for starting the room!

I finally finished Berlin Noir: .. It's the first three books in a hardboiled detective series set in Germany in the 30's and 40's. It was pretty good. The author's writing really improved with each book. I may read the fourth book in the series at some point.

I'm also 50% into the audio version of Ex-Patriots (Ex-Heroes Book 2). I'm enjoying it.

Not sure what I'll read next. Maybe I'll continue with book 3 of Wool Omnibus Edition (Wool 1 - 5)
