My potential books for November:

Titan - Ben Bova
Kallocain - Karin Boye
The Triumph of Time - James Blish
Star Trek books

Currently reading Deadwood and The Horse, the Wheel and Language. The latter is very interesting and very long.

YAY. Completed the Pick N Mix challenge,thats 80 books. Mind you about a quarter of them were short stories or novellas,because I am reading less as my eyes get worse.. I did also read a lot of stuff off kindle unlimited,but self published stuff,which can be good fun, doesnt show up on WWEnd.
This month I have been reading several Winston juvenile SF,which are enjoyable. Its getting harder to locate free copies any more,I think I will end up reading about 25 out of the 37 books.
Now reading The Severed Streets and Retief of the CDT.

Keith Laumer's Retief of the CDT was a fun outing of the diplomat on various planets,a very sharp satire on the diplomatic corp in any time or world. Funny and cynical and just good fun.
After finishing my 2022 challenges I have have just had a good time binge reading an old urban fantasy series,the Guild Hunter books by Nalini Singh.,all about angels,vampires and human hunters of rogue vampires.

I read a lot of non-genre books this month and nothing on my intended TBR for November. I did read some award nominated short fiction.

Margin of Error -Nancy Kress
Custom Options Available - Amy Griswald
When Rabbit and Crow Saved East St. Louis - Annalee Newitz
Article of Faith - Mike Resnik

Only one month left to finish my challenges.
