Reading Wrap-up For November at Moonshine and Rosefire

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter’s blog, Emeraldfire’s Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! πŸ™‚

Anyway, I started out November with 807 unread books lying around the house and ended the month with 797 books unread. All the books that I acquired this month came from Amazon, lent to me by Mareena, from Netgalley, lent to me by friends, and a Library Book Sale that we went to on the 21st.

Let me try to break down the influx for you:
