I'd like to finish Момент истины. After that I'd like to start another war-related book, either memoir or fiction. I might try to tackle The Caine Mutiny by Herman Wouk which I have as an audiobook

Well, having had a slow reading month in November, I am hoping that holidays will help me get 5 read. I'd also like to read 5 1001 books. My final goal for this month is to close out the year having read more books by women than by men. This has been hard with my 1001 reading as the list is heavily dominated by male authors.

I would also like to finish a book in German. I have several started (Das Paket by Sebastian Fitzek, Kind aller Lander by Irmgard Keun, Silber 3 by Kerstin Gier... I also have Jugend ohne Gott by Ödön von Horváth as an audiobook

I want to finish four books completely this month as I have a habit of starting one book only to stop in the middle to read a second books which I stop in the middle to read...well, you know the drill.

So far I finished one book this week, a book I borrowed from the library called Volume Control which was all the newest research and information about devices for the deaf/Deaf/hearing impaired. As I wear hearing aids, this was of great interest to me. Check out my review on the book's page.

I'm back to a BookCrossing book which is good so that one has promise as far as finishing it. It's called You by Caroline Kepness and is sort of a stalker book. My husband started it but couldn't read it because he said it was too creepy. I like creepy books! :D

My December goal: 4 completed books.
