My Month in Books | November stats breakdown

Happy December, bookworms! Before the new and final month of the year gets underway, let’s take a look back at November.

Into the stats!

This was the month of nonfiction and science fiction. My main priority was Nonfiction November, but my buddy reads leaned heavily into my newfound Expanse obsession. Those big sci-fi books helped pad out my page length/hours listened because I listened to several short short nonfiction books/essays. Regardless of all that, I had my biggest reading month of the year so far aided by an extremely slow second half of the month at work.
