As the end of the year approaches, I find myself thinking about what will make “this year’s” list and what book will begin next year’s list. I’m not talking “best of” lists quite yet, just thinking about what books to end the year with. Are you thinking about that too? I set a goal for myself on Goodreads, to read 60 books this year. I am at 75 right now (not yet recorded) but will probably read at least three more before the year ends, maybe more. Since I didn’t get to that King book over Thanksgiving, that is probably what I will end the year with. How about you?
For me, that last book should be pure fun. However, the first book of the year has the potential to set the tone for the rest of the year. Maybe I am being too anal about it, but this stuff is fun to me. I guess that is what sets me (and the rest of us) apart from the average reader.
Enough about reading. Ha!
Last night, we met-up with friends, ate cookies to our heart’s content, listened to Christmas Carols and cruised around to look at Christmas lights. It was a beautiful, mild evening and it was nice to spend some time with friends.
Today, I have to hit the mall to finish-up my shopping. I went yesterday but the mall had a “snow” day and it was packed. I couldn’t even get into the parking lot so I am hoping that today isn’t as bad. Later, we are hitting my in-law’s to watch football. I may bring my Christmas cards with me because I forgot to send them out last week and they haven’t even been addressed.
Tomorrow, the long-awaited review for 1Q84 posts. It took me forever to write it because it was so hard to convey the feeling that I had while reading it but I think it’s finally the way I want it to be.
Right now I am helping The Girl write a Cereal Box book report. It’s mostly fun, but takes quite a bit of time. I am so glad it will be done and turned in BEFORE winter break. Nothing worse than having homework over break.
Have a great Sunday!! Hope you are enjoying a nice breakfast and some delicious coffee or some other yummy drink.
