I'm foreseeing a busy couple of months ahead with Christmas coming. I have several projects on the go, including making Christmas gifts. I also decided to spend a little more time on my sad Etsy shop and actually put some items in it. Then there's the concerts, parties, cleaning and baking that will need to be done. Last year, I caught a really bad flu and ended up in bed for a couple of weeks. I hope that doesn't happen this year.
At least I'm thinking ahead and even managed to get my Christmas shopping started. I bought a lot of books this past week as gifts. I'm doing my part for Buy Books for the Holidays! I also was tempted by the cashier to buy their member card so now I must buy more books. Oh and the library sale is next week so I'll be stocking up on old books as well.
So what does this all mean? Well, I might be a worse commenter than I already am now though I'm always reading your comments and blogs. I'm already spending less time on Twitter and on the computer in general. As for reading, I have a couple of books to read for the Classics Circuit tours but other than that I'm keeping a relaxing reading pace until the new year. I'm going to try anyway.
Hopefully by the new year, I'll be refreshed and full of new ideas!
I finally decided on some of the books I'll be reading for the Women Unbound Challenge. I'm going to be a Bluestocking and read 5 books:
- Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte (Fiction)
- The Life of Charlotte Bronte by Elizabeth Gaskell (Non-fiction and also a Classic Circuit tour book)
- Governesses: The Lives and Times of the Real Jane Eyre's by Ruth Brandon (Non-Fiction)
- The Blythes Are Quoted by L.M. Montgomery (Fiction)
- The Custom of the County by Edith Wharton (Fiction)
Anyway I have lots to do! If you do the holidays, have you thought about it yet? Done any shopping?
