November 2014 Round-Up

Ah, November is over. I don’t know where the month went. (I say that a lot, don’t I?) But somehow between all the days — it was a better month for me — the month flew by. I did manage to get a lot read, which helped me fall out of a slump. The other thing that helped with the slump was discovering Serial. A story told over the course of  40-minute podcasts, one a week, it details reporter Sarah Koenig’s investigation into a 1999 murder of a 17 year old girl, Hae. It’s not only a fascinating story to listen to (and one I have become a bit obsessive about), it’s a fantastic bit of reporting. Seriously. Check it out, if you already hadn’t.
