My leg is healing so well that I have time to do a little catch-up work here on the blog. It's wonderful to have an appendage that's actually beginning to look and act like it's supposed to!
I was much less profligate with my money in October-- a good thing as I began racking up hospital bills at the end of the month!-- and I even managed to get a couple of titles for free. I still find myself reading more on my Kindle than I read physical books. That Kindle is just so easy to pop into my purse that I've gotten spoiled.
I've grouped my additions by genre/subgenre. If you click on the title, you'll be taken to Amazon US for more information about the book.
Let's see what I couldn't resist last month!
Island of the Lost: An Extraordinary Story of Survival at the Edge of the World by Joan Druett. Set on Auckland Island.

It looks as though October was the month for non-fiction, doesn't it? Have you read any of these books? Any comments about them? Did you add any of them to your own wishlists? Which ones? Inquiring minds would love to know!
