I devoured more books than normal this week, thanks to Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon! I'll probably write up some mini-reviews for those books later this week.
The Underground Girls of Kabul by Jenny Nordberg
I'd like to keep the nonfiction reading trend going for Nonfiction November. I bought a copy of A Curious Man in Florida last year. Perhaps I'll dive into that? No promises!
Around the Blogosphere:
Nonfiction November is hosted by Sophisticated Dorkiness, Regular Rumination, and Doing Dewey. I'm a big nonfiction nerd and I cannot wait to get started! See any of those links for details on how to play along.
In My Neck of the Woods:
I recently saw Gone Girl. Was it as good as the book? That's a silly question. It was, however, quite good. I'm no movie critic but it kept me on the edge of my seat, which is pretty great considering that I already knew what was going on. Part of that might have been the appeal of Ben Affleck? I've always had a soft spot for that boy.

Happy Sunday to one and all!
