Happy Sunday! We’re another week closer to Christmas! This week has been busy, we did some holiday shopping, splurged and went out for Chinese food (it’s been years!), and we’ve been watching some Christmas specials. We have a tradition of watching all those corny Christmas specials (mostly cartoons from the 60’s-80’s). We watched the John Denver Christmas special, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, the Smurfs Christmas Carol, Mickey’s Once Upon a Carol, and we’re hoping to watch a few more treasures soon.
I’ve been working a lot on the blog, trying to get caught up on that backlog of reviews – I wrote 4 reviews last week, which helped a LOT in getting caught up!
I’m still being very fussy in taking on new books to read – and I’m really planning on trying to concentrate on 2018 as being a year of reading for me, really, just whatever I want to read. I still want to work on those classics – I didn’t read a lot of them this year at all – and I want to get back into the habit of listening to audiobooks – but other than that, I just want to read what I feel like, when I feel like it. I think I finalized my reading goals for next year, so I’ll be sure to write about that soon.
Are you an author? I’m looking for an author to guest post on my blog, writing about the various sites currently being used to send books to fans & reviewers, such as book funnel or instafreebie. I’d like to write a post about my perspective on such sites and/or write up a post about resources for authors, but I’d like to compare my perspective with an author’s perspective, if possible.
