The View From Monday - October 30, 2017

Happy last Monday in October and Happy Halloween Eve! We had a very windy and wet storm yesterday into this morning. It's still raining but the wind has died down some. School was cancelled here due to power outages and impassible roads. We've had some terrible storms around Halloween including an early Nor'easter that left the area without power for a week. I'm thankful for just a one day wind/rain event and hope everyone's power is back on soon. Obviously this nothing like what our friends in the Caribbean and other areas are going through. If you are so inclined you can head over to Charity Navigator and check out ways to donate to Relief for Puerto Rico and Areas Impacted by Hurricane Maria, Hurricane Harvey Relief, and Hurricane Irma Relief.

Please note that I am not including November titles in this post. A full list of November books, etc. will be posted on November 1st.
