November 2017 Update

Another month closer to the end of the year. 2017 really flew by, didn't it? I'm happy to see we're ending Hurricane season - it was a vicious one and I'm not in the mood for any more storms.

We're also already coming to an end for the Fall season. Overall it's been a good Fall in Florida for a change - instead of being in the 90's daily, we've had some spurts of cooler weather and it's evened out around the 70's, which is perfect.

I've read little this month in comparison to other months, but did hit that yearly Goodreads goal. December is a busy behind-the-scenes time blog and reading wise. I have to tally up the year totals, see in dismay how poorly I did on New Year's challenges, complete the End of the Year survey, try to catch up on stray reviews I procrastinated on (behind almost 50, yes really...), create a new plan for the new year and post it at the respective Goodreads and Library thing groups, create a new Challenge page for Paperbackstash while filling in and completing previous challenges here for 2017. And naturally real life stuff too!

On a negative note, FEMA basically sucks in my opinion. No help from them whatsoever even though I meet every qualification and applied for assistance the first week of the hurricane when I could find a place with working power. Took two months for an inspector to come out, then they denied me saying damage wasn't caused by storm (which makes no sense, they have no proof of this). I kept the evidence of the storm damage and my house is still in disarray, so it's bogus. Three weeks later no response to an appeal either. Why are they so strangely random on who they will help? 

The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle

Professor Challenge, #1

A land before time - a journey beyond belief …

Unlucky in love, but desperate to prove himself in an adventure, journalist Ed Malone is sent to test the infamous and hot-tempered Professor Challenger on his bizarre South American expedition findings - not least his sketches of a strange plateau and the monstrous creatures that appear to live there.

But rather than being angry at his questions, Challenger invites him along on his next field trip. Malone is delighted: until it becomes clear that the Professor was telling the truth about the terrible lost world he has discovered.

Will they all survive the terrifying creatures on the island? And will anyone ever believe what they saw there?

“So tomorrow we disappear into the unknown. This account I am transmitting down the river by canoe, and it may be our last word to those who are interested in our fate.”
