November Wrap-Up/December Theme

I liked or loved most of the books I read about liquids last month. The best were Chasing the White Dog, The Frozen-Water Trade, and A History of the World in 6 Glasses. Unfortunately, I only made it through five books before the month ran out. I'm not sure why; none were particularly lengthy or difficult reading, and it didn't seem like I was reading less.

December's theme may be the toughest: unfinished business. I have about 20 partially-read books, and my goal is to finish as many as I can before the new year begins. The catch is that I rarely put down a book halfway through, so there is usually a good reason when I do. Sometimes I just can't get into the subject matter. Other times the writing is difficult, whether overly technical or not engaging. Whatever the reason, the stack with bookmarks sticking out awaits!
