Book of the month - Jim Fusilli - Road to Nowhere November's only 5 star read.
4 x 4.5 stars - Graham Wynd, Jonathan Stone, Eric Beetner and Nigel Bird.
1 x 4 star rating, Grant Jerkins
1 x 3.5 and 1 x 3 stars - another month where they all entertained me and nothing was a struggle to enjoy.
Carl Hiaasen - bottom of the class with a 3 - I enjoyed it, it just wasn't up to the standard of some of his previous books - Tourist Season and Double Whammy for example.
A bit more trivia or data........
8 different authors.
4 of the 8 were new-to-me authors........ Grant Jerkins, Jonathan Stone, Jim Fusilli and John Preston. I have more from the first three to read.
4 authors have been read before - Nigel Bird, Eric Beetner, Graham Wynd (aka K. A. Laity) and Florida funnyman Carl Hiaasen. All will be read again in the future.
Gender analysis - no surprises here - 7 dudes, 1 lady called Graham!
I think 6 authors hail from the US, and 2 from England,
7 reads were fiction. 1 non-fiction and a trip down memory lane. John Preston's A Very English Scandal concerning itself with Liberal politician Jeremy Thorpe's high profile trial in the 70s.
1 was a hardback read, 1 a paperback, 6 were Kindle books.
All 8 were published this decade - with 2 from 2016.
5 of the 8 books were pre-owned! 3 came from the publishers.
Favourite cover? John Preston - A Very English Scandal
Abnormal Man is my second favourite cover. Unusual to say the least.
My reads were this long 217 - 256 - 40 - 30 - 76 - 342 - 106 - 352
