In my TBR this month | Nonfiction November

This is the last week of  Nonfiction November  - this may only be my second time actually following through for all four weeks of this event. Which is great - because I discovered some amazing blogs and several excellent nonfiction titles this month. Doing Dewey  is hosting the week and she's asking -  It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book! I picked up a ton of recommendations this month - these six are the ones I am most looking forward to reading.  Pandemic Solidarity  by Marina Sitrin and Rebecca Solnit - discovered over at Monika's  Lovely Bookshelf  - she has several similar books recommended in her post, and I'll admit I TBR'd almost all of them.  Doughnut Economics  by Kate Raworth -  Unsolicited Feedback  has several other books on this topic but this one in particular caught my eye. I Have Something to Tell You  by Chasten Buttigieg - thi

The Sunday Salon -- Mar 28, 2010

Salon.com

I've been on a brief hiatus for the past 4 days! That's not good for me at all, but I had a couple of interviews to attend, which went pretty well, so I'm keeping my finger-crossed! I was also taking part in a Read-a-thon yesterday that was being organized in a Goodreads group. I didn't wow myself with my reading counts, but when I looked at my reading stats for the month, it looked good. I think I will touch 9 books this month, so it's been a good month, I would say!

I still am behind on my reviews, so I will have them scheduled over the next few days. I have tons of blogs to check out today, so guess what I'll be doing today. :)

I slept like a baby last night! After 3 days of minimal / disturbed sleep, that felt good. I might still not have woken up, if not for the fact that I have to chat with my mom. :)

We have a bunch of very annoying neighbors! They party all night (that's ok with me), and then be a nuisance to the apartments nearby! Last night's culprits puked on our doorstep! How horrible is that! Makes me want to terrorize them back, but I'm trying to keep my must-tested and much-abused patience! Once they thought it was fun to switch off the power supply to some apartments in the building. We spent a morning waiting for someone to set it right. Another time, they tore off notices that were stuck on our door. When should one snap? Partying and drinking are just no excuses to inconvenience others! Times like this, I really don't like staying near students. I totally can't wait to get out of here!

Cloudy and rainy out here! Just the perfect day to read! I need to get around to all my pending tasks now! It's going to be a housekeeping day!

Happy Reading and Happy Blogging!

That's exactly why my son and his roomies live among "normal" people. The townhouse development he lives in is mostly families and a few graduate students.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you on the job front too!

Wow, and I thought my neighbours were bad!

Those ARE bad neighbors!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, too.

Kathy, I have learned a BIG lesson from this. No more students as neighbors, unless it is a family-oriented locale! Thanks for keeping your fingers crossed! :)

Kat, this lot near my apt are BAD, as in REALLY BAD!!

JoAnn, I agree. Thanks for keeping your fingers crossed! :)

Juju, I hope so too! I've been hoping for 2 years. :(
I agree, my neighbour is nothing like that. A bit noisy but she's tolerable.

Looking forward to your reviews.

Jennifer, at one point I thought noisy neighbors were the worst! This lot is worse!!
Too bad students feel they have to act like that away from home.

Book Dilettante, true. :(

Makes you want to clean up the puke, bag it up and leave it on their doorstep, doesn't it?

I lived in a family oriented apartment complex and continuously had to walk through the fog bank of ganja smoke just to get to my front door. I really don't care if you want to smoke pot, but I don't choose to and don't want to breath it in, much less carry my grandchildren throught the fog bank!

Mardel, ugh! That totally sucks! It's horrid having such neighbors who won't even think of others, but just of satiating their desires and wishes!
