And so we say good bye to another month and the end of 2019 is fast approaching!
October 2019 though… WHAT A MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like ignoring the fact that I read hardly anything and had a super tough month illness-wise…
I SAW JOHN MAYER IN CONCERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOTHING CAN TAKE THAT EXPERIENCE AWAY FROM ME!!!!! You guys I still can’t believe I saw him in the flesh. I have been a fan of his for nigh on twenty years. I own all of his albums either on CD or digitally. I pretty much listen to his music daily. He just is that musician that gets me… I know that sounds nuts and I am more than aware that he knows not of my existence. But his songs, his lyrics… they mean more to me than I can ever say and so finally getting to see him in concert after all these years was both incredibly exciting and deeply emotional.
But I hear you… this is a book blog not a blog dedicated to all things John Mayer!! So let’s talk books.
I READ SOOOOO LITTLE THIS MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!! I just don’t know what happened. I swear this happens nearly every October. I just get into sort of a funk or a slowness and well… I just don’t read that much!
But I don’t feel concerned in any way. Because I am such a mood reader I let that guide me. And if my mood is to watch copious recordings of John Mayer’s 2019 world tour on YoutTube then so be it… (I know, I can’t help but mention him this month LOL!)
Here’s a complete list of everything I read in September (click on the titles to be taken to my review).
- Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi
- Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
So just five books in total… bear in mind Ducks, Newburyport is over 1000 pages though… But still a long way off my average for a month. And any month in which I read as amazing a book as Mary H.K. Choi’s Permanent Record is a great month in my opinion!
I do hope that I read a little more November but as long as I am happy then that is all that matters I guess.
And as a last hurrah to my best night ever, here is a YouTube recording of John Mayer performing Tougher Than The Rest (a Bruce Springsteen cover) from that most amazing of gigs that I was so privileged to attend.
