On the first Thursday of the month available on my site,
I’m planning to post about the previous month, 10 years before.

  📚 📚 📚 

So today, I’ll be revisiting January 2011.

I published 22 posts, 8 of these were reviews.
The two that got most views are

Of the 8 books reviewed that month, The Lost City of Z is still the one I remember most. I haven’t watched the movie yet, should I?

To tell the truth, I don’t remember much of these. Hoffman has recently published another book. Have you read it? Do you recommend it to me?
If you love gothic, you have to read The Good Thief!

The book that blew my mind that month is:

unbroken

This one I really remember! Definitely a must if you have never read it.

I had also launched my own reading challenge, for books published in the first 5 years of my life. This post got the most comments of the month.
I did it for a few years, then stopped.

So today, I’ll be revisiting November 2010.

I published 15 posts, 8 of these were reviews.
The two that got most views are

A Walk in the Woods The Great Typo Hunt

I  updated these posts and added new content!

I still love nature and words as much as I did ten years ago, so I highly recommend these. Don’t bother about the movie on Bryson’s book, really badly done, and not focusing on the important parts of the book.

I would also recommend this book presented in November 2010:

dalai

It’s the manga nonfiction I read. I love reading biographies in this format (or as “graphic novel), and this one was very well done.
