So, another Monday. (Well, it will be, in a few hours.) Almost Christmas. Almost the end of the year. Does that seem possible? I was just getting used to 2015, and here it is almost 2016
. What happened?
Didn't finish any books last week. I was looking around for something to read, with a Christmas theme, and found this in one of the boxes of books stored out in the garage:
I'm not very far along in it, but the description sounded interesting, so I'll see how it goes.
Other than that, I haven't been doing much actual reading
lately -- too much real life going on at the moment: Christmas shopping, cards to address and send, gifts to wrap, Christmas movies to watch. And, of course, the ongoing and perpetually amusing Dental Adventures -- but that's not really something you need to hear about.
Recently, my main bookish activity has been discovering new reading challenges to add to the list I'm keeping. And I don't really know WHY I'm keeping it, but once I started, my OCD kicked in and I just had to continue. Nothing I love better than a good list. If you do too -- or if you're looking for a reading challenge to tempt you -- you can take a look at said list HERE
. (But be warned -- it has over 100 challenges listed.)
So far, I've only signed up for a handful of the new challenges. For 2016, I'm trying to cut back a bit on challenges. I do think they help to keep me reading, but I also find I don't do as well with programmed reading as I used to. Getting too old and curmudgeonly, I guess.
OK, enough of this brilliance. Now I'm gonna go see what everyone else is reading.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. If you want to let the world know what you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs.
