We had a great holiday full of visiting family and, I have to admit, I didn’t read any books at all last week. I got in a few pages of Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald and the first chapter of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien but that was it.
I didn’t get any books for Christmas but I did get a lot of gift cards to buy books so I’m just as excited. I have a huge list waiting to go and will probably give in and order a few before the week is out.
For my birthday earlier this month, my husband bought me a Nook. 🙂 The way it’s looking right now, I’ll probably have it by Valentine’s Day. 😦 It says it will be shipping in January but I’m skeptical, what can I say, but I’m still very excited. I’m going to save at least one of the gift cards so I can buy a boatload of books for the Nook too.
I’m off all this week using up the last of my vacation days for the year and plan to make a trip to the library for some books too. I finished up all the books I had out a few weeks ago and decided that since I was busy with the holidays, I would just wait until this week to make a library run. I have my list ready and can’t wait to share the loot when I get my little hands on it. I haven’t done a library loot post in so long I feel as if I’m going into withdrawal.
I have two reviews to write up for this week along with a list of my favorite books of the year. For now, I’ll be retiring to the couch to lounge in my new, very fluffy and very comfy robe to spend some good quality time with a book.
