Here is the recap for October:
Books Read: 8
Author events: 2 -- Hannah Rosin (The End of Men) and Camille Paglia (Glittering Images). Also enjoyed celebrity chef Tyler Florence at The Incredible Food Show in Lexington. He has written quite a few cookbooks (which I would never read) and I found him to be down-to-earth and engaging.
Still reading: Billy Boyle by James R. Benn (a WWII mystery that I am reading on my Nook) and I Capture the Castle (which I planned on reading entirely in October but didn't. Now it is on my November reading list).
Books returned to the library unread: 3
Number of pumpkins carved: 0
