It's Monday! What are you reading? - November 27

Ok so it's been about a month, but as you can see it wasn't a huge reading month. But I'm going to try to get back on a weekly schedule.

Currently Reading:

TitleWe Will Not Be Silent: The White Rose Student Resistance Movement That Defied Adolf Hitler

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
