Here are my stats for November:
Books read: 11
Books bought: 7
Still reading: Shoofly Pie by Tim Downs
Books deserted: Elizabeth the Queen by Sally Bidell Smith which for me contains way too much information about Her Majesty most of which I am not interested in...
Number of book fairs attended: 1
Number of authors met at book fair: at least 20 including Bobby Ann Mason and Wendell Berry
Number of authors who left comments on this blog: 2 - Karina Lickorish Quinn (Shrinking Violet) and William Kuhn (Mrs. Queen Takes the Train)

FYI: Shoofly pie is a molasses pie that is similar to what we here in the South call chess pie. Shoofly is traditionally a Pennsylvania Dutch dessert and unlike the chess pie has a crumb topping. As the story goes, the molasses attracts flies which must be 'shooed' away.
