November was our second full month of the blog and man, it went by quickly!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and told us which fantasy or sci-fi worlds they’d love to visit. There are some fantastic suggestions – Neverwhere, Earthsea, Hobbiton. My favourite comment has to go to Widdershins for wanting to live in The Fast and the Furious Franchise.
Mr NW discussed the chances of seeing a post scarcity society in real life. His assessment was HIGHLY unlikely but as Babbitman points out, if we could achieve it, creativity would go through the roof.
You guys kindly put up with my ranting about TBR lists and I’m glad? to find this is clearly a huge problem for anyone who enjoys reading. Congrats to Dragons and Zombies for clearing her TBR list last month and then quickly refilling it with Brandon Sanderson books.
Mr NW finished reading The Palace Job, and I can attest he was actually laughing while reading it. Mr NW spent a whole day switching between fangirling and freaking out when Patrick Weekes retweeted our post.
I’m fairly certain Mr NW hasn’t finished any of the books he started reading, one, because he then started The Palace Job and two, because he has too many on the go concurrently (IMHO). Actually, he might have finished The Summer Dragon, at least it seems to have disappeared from his bedside table. I finished reading two books this month: The Player of Games and Fade-Out.
We found out that there’s a fairly even mix of people who like to buy from bookshops vs those who shop online in The Book Buying Dilemma. Thanks for the great hints on how to find some fantastic deals on books.
I’m still looking forward to seeing all the snowy Christmas photos (or photo-shopped versions). We got the kids a snow globe today, and Mr just turned 4 was disappointed that there was no real snow involved.
So there you have our round up of November – thanks for sticking it out to the bottom of the post. I’m actually surprised by our month. I think we covered way more than I thought we did, and I feel like we are starting to get the hang of this blogging thing. I’m not expecting December will be as busy as I have mad plans for a nice long relaxing summer holiday.
