It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (12.24.12)

It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.

It was a busy week with last minute Christmas errands and holiday baking. For the holidays my husband and I travel to Long Island for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with his family and then we head to Delaware on Christmas day for my family's holiday gathering. It will be a busy few days, but I am looking forward to all the family time! Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!!!

I'm still working on finishing up two reading challenges. In order to complete them, I need to read 7 books - I'm still fairly optimistic that I can get these all read in a week...luckily I can read in the car! I will definitely be taking advantage of all down-time to read.

Books Completed last week:
  • The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman (mine)
  • A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson (library audio book)
  • Dreams of Joy by Lisa See (mine)

What about you?  What does your reading week look like this week?  Whatever it is, happy reading and have a good week!


  1. It's a good thing you can read in the car. I can too. If not, I would only mope at all the lost hours of reading while doing nothing but sitting!

  2. Best of luck on completing your reading challenges! Merry Christmas.

  3. Hope you have a safe and happy Christmas and good luck with your reading challenges. I still have one more reading challenge to complete so I will be feverishly reading over the next few days when I'm not spending time with my family :)
