Well, I crapped out for NaNoWriMo, but I did realize there are some books I should definitely be reading...
Shop Class As Soulcraft by Matthew B. Crawford
This is one I bought today, about the value of working with your hands, which fewer and fewer people do, but more and more people are needed to do. I'll report back.
There's also a history of the Replacements by Jim Walsh, and a new Nick Hornby book.
AND, if I can track a copy down, The Greatest Finnish Crime Novel of 2009!
(I'll update with links and such, but now I have to go to bed...)
