So. What am I reading this week? And the answer is... I'm really not reading anything much. I'm addressing Christmas cards, finishing up the shopping, and getting ready for a mid-week gathering of old friends. I might be able to fit in a little reading during all that, but it's not extremely likely. If I do find the time, I'll be trying to finish one of several books I started last month — probably either...
As Good As Gone, by Larry Watson
Faithful, by Alice Hoffman
The Larry Watson book was an Early Reviewer book from Library Thing and I'm very, very late in getting to it — so that one should really be my first priority, I suppose. But the Alice Hoffman novel really grabbed me and I'd love to finish it this year even though that seems like wishful thinking at this point.
Although I haven't been doing much actual reading lately, I have been looking at all the new reading challenges cropping up, and thinking about the ones I might like to take on. I've only signed up for one, so far (the European Challenge, hosted by Rose City Reader), but I have several more in mind. I was sort of overwhelmed by all my challenges this year, so I'm trying very hard to be more selective in 2017. (We'll see how long that lasts!)
So, what about you? Will you be doing more reading in 2016? Or just trying to struggle through the holiday hubbub?
