These are based on obscure holidays for the month in question, found here: http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreho...
Read as many or as few as you like.


Nov 1 - All Saint's Day
Nov 2 - All Soul's Day

Read a book where someone has died.

Nov 5 - Guy Fawkes Day
"Remember Remember, the 5th of November!" In honor of the man who nearly blew up Parliament, and whose effigy is burned yearly on Bonfire Night... Read a book set in the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).

Nov 5 - Book Lover's Day
Read the last book you bought. (If you havn't bought one recently, then by all means, purchase one and read it! hehe)

Nov 17 - Homemade Bread Day
Read a Culinary Mystery. BONUS: Bake Homemade Bread this month, or eat homemade bread. Yum!

Nov 11 - Veteran's Day
Read a book with a veteran in it, or anyone actively serving in the military. Another option, as I am retired US Air Force, is for you to pick a book off any of my shelves here on GRs to read.

Enjoy!

I have over 565 mysteries, not counting the Murder, She Wrote or Trixie Belden mysteries shelved seperately, for everyone to choose from. There are more mysteries listed under Condensed Books too, as I got an entire set (at a garage sale) of Detective Book Club condensed books. So you should definetly be able to find something to read from my shelves. (Doesn't have to be a mystery either. Total, I have 5500 books to choose from.)

It just so happened to be on hand. ;)
My husband (a MacGyver fan) received the book as a gift from our daughter.

It's also an interesting read. I especially like the part about making a homemade air conditioner with a tabletop electric fan, copper tubing, plastic
tubing, and water from a garden hose - it really works!

The poor man's air conditioner I always tell folks about (if you're truely desperate, lol) is to freeze a bucket of water 2/3 full (left over ice cream type bucket, leave room on top). Sit bucket of ice on a towel in front of a fan... instant cool air. Not the best, but if it's so hot you're that desperate, it feels pretty good.
