Books read in November

All books this month were on my kindle, which has really made it convenient for me to read. My time is usually early in the morning for about an hour, and late in the evening after dinner. The backlight helps.

Most importantly, I’ve started Joyce’s Ulysses, which is like my white whale. I’ve made several attempts to read it in the past few years but never finished a chapter. But this attempt has been the best so far. I’m at chapter 3 right now and intend to finish this book in December.

Circe, by Madeline Miller

Lovely book from the author of The Song of Achilles. This one’s about, as you’d expect, Circe, who features in the Odyssey.

We Are Legion (We Are Bob), by Dennis E. Taylor

Pretty decent. Reads a bit like Star Trek fanfic at times so I don’t know if I’ll continue the series.

Nabokov: The Mystery of Literary Structures, by Leona Toker

A detailed look at several of Nabokov’s books. A few weren’t fresh in my memory but this is always a fruitful area to get lost in.

The Inimitable Jeeves, by P.G. Wodehouse

Comfort reading. I got this and several other books from gutenberg. I like classics that have stood the test of time any way.
