November Rosepoint Reviews Recap—Welcome December – #holidayseason

Rosepoint Publishing November Review Recap

Yes, a lovely Thanksgiving with both our daughter and son—first time in almost five years. A flurry of activity around here, concentrating efforts on the house and food and predictable leftovers sent home in both directions. Not all five years due to Covid, however, as with our daughter it was geography. This year MUCH closer and we can breathe a sigh of relief knowing she is now within 4-5 hours from us instead of across the country. She is still absolutely delighted with their new (to them) home in southern Illinois and I’m delighted she is so happy.

Great-grandbaby DavidNow we are on the next projecthoping our grandkids will be coming east as well, particularly now that we are the new great-grandparents of a beautiful baby boy. Hope to hold that new great-grandbaby soon!

The CE is still dealing with the shingles; apparently these things last forever, but he is feeling better and obviously reading and providing his reviews.

So, predictably stretched pretty thin, still managed eighteen book reviews in a wide range of genres for November, most from NetGalley as well as the library for my audiobooks. (Links to my review below the thumbnails.)

I had my reading challenges updated at one point, but with the coming holidays, loss that momentum again. You can check out the challenges progress by clicking on my Reading Challenges page. Goals reached thus far are the Historical Reading Fiction, Audiobook, and NetGalley challenges.

I am within one of my Goodreads challenge of 175, now at 174, and I’ll stay with this challenge number in the new year. Currently at 395 NG reviews, I won’t update my sidebar graphic until I hit 400. Look for that change shortly. How are you doing with your challenges?

Seems I have a new struggle every month with either the WP widgets and their block editor or the ongoing effort to keep up my challenges. I’m one of those who check my (Amazon) review ranking and the loss of hundreds of my reviews really hurts, particularly when it comes to a review for one of my favorite authors. One particular review (after having two ignored, finally posted a full week after submission. (I’d finally given up and made my apologies. I am also wondering if there is a conflict between the Vine program reviews and my book reviews.

Or, is it just another of the many upheavals in the Amazon algorithms? Anyone else having a problem with their reviews getting lost in the ether?

Well, anyway, thank you to the new followers and for my established followers. I hope you and yours are continuing to manage yet another in the certainly long line of Covid variants. Now the Omicron? How many immunity shots can a body handle?

Have a great week!
