One of the best things about this month is that along with Nonfiction November, I’m also moving into the time of year for Free Range Reading. I tend to do more backlist reading and picking titles at whim as the year comes to an end, which is part of why I finally picked up The Golem and the Jinni. My other motivation is that Helene Wecker won VCU’s First Novelist Award and will be here in Richmond tomorrow with her editor and agent to talk about the book. I also just opened up Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality by Danielle Allen, which is my first official read for Nonfiction November. We’re off to a great start so far!
