Reading life review: November

Stoner (John Williams)
Fiction. Related entry here.

Family Happiness (Laurie Colwin)
Fiction. So many people had recommended Colwin. Perhaps I chose the wrong title? Let's just leave it at "Not my cuppa."

A Tale of Two Cities (Charles Dickens)
Classic. With the Family-Centered Learning Project book club. I now know that I was robbed in high school: The edition in our English textbook comprised fewer than one hundred pages. That's not an abridgment; it's text murder! Anyway, all of us loved this selection.

The Walking Dead, Book One: Days Gone By (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Two: Miles Behind Us (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Three: Safety Behind Bars (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Four: The Heart's Desire (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Five: The Best Defense (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Six: This Sorrowful Life (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Seven: The Calm Before (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Eight: Made to Suffer (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Nine: Here We Remain (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Ten: What We Become (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Eleven: Fear the Hunters (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Twelve: Life Among Them (Robert Kirkman)
The Walking Dead, Book Thirteen: Too Far Gone (Robert Kirkman)
Graphic series. News that AMC had developed a series based on Kirkman's story of life after a zombie apocalypse prompted me to seek out the books. Thoroughly entertaining.

And the Pursuit of Happiness (Maira Kalman)
Art. Recommendation / related entry here.

Summer of My German Soldier (Bette Greene)
Fiction. With the Girls Rule! Book Club. This one is a childhood favorite and rightly deserves a place on this list. I don't know how I left it off.
