What Are You Reading: December 19, 2011: 12/19/11
I am officially on vacation. Spring semester doesn't start until the end of January. In between culling my bookshelves and doing a massive decluttering of my house, I am also reading. I got through many of the library books that have been sitting patiently for me to get done with school.
I finally finished Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani. I liked the ending but I'm not inspired to read any more books in that series right now.
Last week I was worrying that I wouldn't finish my GoodReads Challenge. I was wrong. I finished early! Please read my post about how I accomplished such a high goal.
Up next: I still want to start Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby. I plan to start Outside In by Maria V. Snyder. I also have a huge pile of picture books to read with my daughter. She actually read me two of them in the car but I'll add them to next week's list.

I really envy you your vacation. I work through the 22nd and start again on the 3rd. That isn't near enough time to read what I want to read. I am going to fall short of my GoodReads challenge unless something miraculous happens.

This is my last year of a vacation. I hope next year to be gainfully employed. Picture books or other short fiction can help you reach your GoodReads goal.

Congratulations on reaching your goal! I can't wait to read your thoughts on The Storm in the Barn. I thought it was lovely. Happy reading!

The Storm in the Barn was delightful. I will get it reviewed as soon as I can but I have a huge backlog of reviews to post.

I have one more Adriana Trigiani book to read, Viola. I am enjoying my time off, although I hope next year to have a job! Happy Holidays.

You did great! I hope you're having a great vacation!

I am keeping busy, trying to get my home decluttered. It's going more slowly than I'd like.

Wow! It sounds like you are on a reading vacation! You read twenty-two books last week? Amazing!
Comment #16: Monday, December 26, 2011 at 11:56:05
This week, though, not so much.

The Widow's Season has piqued my interest. Enjoy your reads...and your holiday off.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #18: Monday, December 26, 2011 at 11:58:58
Thanks. Unfortunately right after I made last week's post, I caught a cold.
Comment #19: Tuesday, December, 20, 2011 at 10:13:40
Congrats on getting caught up! I'm way behind and wish I'd get a vacation to catch up :)
Comment #20: Monday, December 26, 2011 at 12:01:01
I haven't caught up now than I'm vacation. I've caught a cold instead.

I read one Connie Willis book a long time ago - I think it was the Doomsday book....maybe. one of the characters ended up in midevil times during or right before the plague...or something like that. It was a long time ago, so my memory might be off, but I do remember I enjoyed it. So, I'm wondering how Black Out is going to be. I saw it in the store the other day, and thought about buying it. Time travel isn't usually my first choice though. So of course, I'd love to see what you think of it.
I see you're still reading tons of books, too. Amazing. Have a great Holiday - and of course Happy Reading! :)
Comment #22: Monday, December 26, 2011 at 12:03:43
That's the Doomsday Book. The one I'm reading is also set in the same universe.
Comment #23: Wednesday, December, 21, 2011 at 05:13:16
Wow, you have read a lot. Impressive!
Comment #24: Monday, December 26, 2011 at 12:05:51
Thanks. This week, though, not so many!
