Early November Unraveling

As you can see, Little Pumpkins did not get finished in time for Halloween. Luckily, winter squash are pretty hardy and pumpkin pie is a staple of Thanksgiving, as well, so I feel like it’s acceptable to still be working on them. Particularly since fall has really only recently arrived in the mid-Atlantic.

My reading is a little bit here, a little bit there. Here we have a sample of historical fiction mysteries (The Secret History of the Pink Carnation mostly takes place just after the French Revolution and A Most Extraordinary Pursuit is set in 1906) and YA/middle-grade contemporaries set in New York City (Clayton Byrd Goes Underground is on the shortlist for the kids’ prize of the National Book Award and Miles Morales is the Spiderman adaptation I’ve been looking forward to reading for ages) that I’m working on. I’ve also just downloaded The Secret History of Wonder Woman, which seemed like a good fit for #NonfictionNovember and to knit while reading (and doing dishes) since Leverage just left Netflix. I’ve got nearly 20 books out from the library right now, which is starting to feel a little overwhelming, so hopefully I can push through some of the shorter ones and get them back this weekend.

Your reading always amazing me! I love your book choices! And, I think pumpkins/squash are good to go for the entire season! 🙂

I’m amazed that you can knit while reading.

@Kat: I just dip in and out of books until one grabs hold and refuses to be put down again.

@Marjorie: It’s way easier if you’re listening to an audiobook. If I’m knitting something relatively repetitive, I can read a print book at the same time, but it requires a book that will stay open of its own accord or if I can use my phone as a paper weight.
