Books read in November

I know I'm not going to get a chance to finish Troy Cook's 47 Rules of Highly Effective Bank Robbers tonight, so here's my list of books read during November.

Hundred-Dollar Baby - Robert B. Parker - I love Parker's Spenser books, with the witty language and the characters of Spenser and Hawk. In this one, April Kyle returns, twenty years after Spenser helped the teen runaway hook up with a high-class madam. Now, April needs help again.

The Worst Person in the World - Keith Olbermann - One year's worth of commentary from Olbermann's MSNBC TV show.

The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid - Bill Bryson - Idyllic memoir of life in Des Moines, Iowa in the 1950s.

A Final Judgment - Michael A. Black - Third Ron Shade mystery in which the Chicago private investigator takes on two cases without all the facts.

Don't Murder Your Mystery - Chris Roerden - Advice for those who want to write mysteries.

Fools Rush In - Sunny Frazier - Christy Bristol, a police clerk, is abducted by a meth dealer so she can do his horoscope.

G'Day to Die - Maddy Hunter - Tour guide Emily Andrew takes her Iowa senior citizens to Australia, where she suspects a tour member has been murdered.

The Handmaid and the Carpenter - Elizabeth Berg - The story of Mary and Joseph.

Philippine Fever - Bruce Cook - ATF agent Sam haine finds himself in a political mess in the Philippines.

First Impressions - Nora Roberts - Reprint in which two people fall in love, despite their misunderstandings and past.

Still Life - Louise Penny - First mystery. A traditional mystery featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache investigating the suspicious death of an elderly woman in a small village in Quebec.
