It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (January 08): 01/08/18
Here it is the second week of 2018. The family is gone home. The Christmas decorations are down. Our live tree is now planted on the hill. Vacation ends today and the kids are therefore back in school.

Ah yes wanting more book! I just read your review of Now That You Mention It, a book I enjoyed too, although I have not yet forgotten the Tweetie "incident".
Comment #2: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 13:52:00
I thought about mentioning Tweetie but decided to leave it out. I had a review written that was about twice as long but it seemed too full of spoilers.
Comment #3: Sunday, January 07, 2018 at 23:14:00
Happy New Year. Looks like you have been busy. I am just listening to the first Dresden Files book and liking it.
I hope 2018 is wonderful for you and that you have lots of good reading!
Comment #4: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 13:57:00
Thanks. We were, although no as busy as we had hoped since we all caught the flu over the holidays.
I think James Marsters does a wonderful job with the Dresden Files narration. I much prefer them as audiobooks than as print.
Comment #5: Sunday, January 07, 2018 at 23:20:31
I'm kinda glad the holidays are over even though it's always tough to see Christmas break end. Hope you're having a good start to 2018, and lots of good reading! :)

My daughter was saying the same thing this morning as I took her to school.
Comment #7: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 05:37:30
Where do you find your books at? I've never seen any of these before but they all look so good!
Comment #8: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 14:02:00
Most books I read either come from my local branch library or from my local indie book store, Books on B. Some of the older, out of print books come from either Thrift Books or Better World Books.

It's a happy feeling to have everything tidied up and put away after a holiday season. Now it's time to read.
Comment #10: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 14:08:00
It's an even happier feeling to have the room to put away the decorations. In our old place the decorations had to sit on the top of a bookshelf in our living room. Now they can go in the garage.

Looks like a fun selection. Enjoy your week!
Comment #12: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 14:10:00
Thank you. Same to you.
Comment #13: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 07:22:50
Here's to getting back to real life!
Comment #14: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 14:10:00
I'm still working on that. So much has changed in the last year that I'm still not entirely sure what the new real is.
Comment #15: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 10:40:09
I read and enjoyed A Pug's Tale a while ago...it was delightful.
I hope to read Now That You Mention It really soon.
Enjoy your week, and here are My weekly updates
Comment #16: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 14:13:00
I know. Your post was what alerted me to the second book.
Comment #17: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 11:53:35
I enjoyed Now That You Mention It and hope you did too. I am also a fan of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #18: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 14:15:00
I did. I posted my review on Saturday. I prefer the Dresden Files as audiobooks.
Comment #19: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 16:16:58
Hefty mailbox! enjoy them all and have a good week.
Comment #20: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 14:16:00
None of them are review books. No mailbox. Library and local book store.
Comment #21: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 21:12:43
Kind of sad when the holidays are over and everyone goes back to their regular lives. Hope you enjoy your books.
Comment #22: Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 09:02:00
It's nice to be back in a routine. We were ready.
Comment #23: Monday, January 08, 2018 at 21:35:00
WOW! You have been busy. Have a great week!
Comment #24: Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 09:04:00
It's not so bad.

Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins seems to have gotten great reviews. My kids are back in school tomorrow. I'm off to check your best reads of 2017 post.
Comment #28: Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 09:07:00
I enjoyed the book. It wasn't what I expected but it definitely kept me turning the pages.
Comment #29: Tuesday, January 09, 2018 at 07:59:39
I REALLY want to get back into reading comics!
Comment #30: Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 09:09:00
I'm really on the fringe of comic reading. I've never been in an actual comic book store and I'm not reading the major titles from the major publishers.
Comment #31: Tuesday, January 09, 2018 at 19:55:40
I really enjoyed Now That You Mention It as well. :)
How cool that you got a live tree that you planted! I love it.
Enjoy your week!
Comment #32: Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 09:12:00
I was amazed at how quickly my husband got that tree up the hill and planted once I had the decorations off it.
Comment #33: Wednesday, January, 10, 2018 at 01:34:36
I’m curious about Now That You Mention It. Need to check out your review. I heard it is great. Anyway, I can’t believe the holiday is over. I hope it can be a bit longer. Hehe..
Have a wonderful week and enjoy your new books. 😁❤️👍🏻
Comment #34: Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 09:14:00
Now That You Mention It was an enjoyable read with memorable characters and a great setting.
Comment #35: Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 05:24:41
Sounds like this week has been pretty decent, that's pretty awesome about planting your Christmas tree! And the books, wow! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #36: Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 14:24:00
The question for this year's Christmas will be if we have room for another live tree or if we'll go with an artificial. We don't want a cut tree — that much we know.
