Another Sunday, but not a lazy one. We have some things to attend to at our house today. When you're the mom of an active daughter, the holiday season is a busy one with concerts and Christmas fairs and all that jazz. Plus there's all the holiday preparations to take care of. My schedule over the next couple of weeks is a full one, as yours probably is too, but I'll still make time for reading.
I feel like I didn't accomplish much reading wise this week although I finished both a book and an audiobook. First, I read The Lunenburg Werewolf by Steve Vernon which is a collection of supernatural stories from Nova Scotia. I really ennjoyed it. I also listened to Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? That's a nice light one. I'll have reviews up for those soon.
I started Someone at a Distance by Dorothy Whipple but saw I'm Half Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley on the library website so I'll probably read that next as I won't have it long.
We had a freak snowstorm this week. I heard we ended up with 40 cm of snow (I can't convert that for you non-metric people, sorry, but it's a lot). I don't know what it is about the first snow of the year here. It's like people had amnesia or there are a lot of visitors from snowless countries that day because no one knows how to drive in it that first time. It was only 6 months or so ago we had snow. Why do people forget how to drive in snow? This is Canada. It comes every year. Anyway the snow lasted briefly as now it's melting into a nice combo of muck and slush (mlush?).
Finally have you seen the latest from the Totally Hip Video Book Reviewer Ron Charles? All summary and no analysis makes Ron a dull reviewer. Something to remember.
Oh and December 3rd I'll have a holiday themed post up for the Virtual Advent Tour. Hope you drop in for that. Also on that day Amanda is hosting a readathon just for kicks.
