Lazy Sunday Thoughts: The End Is Near

Pin It

Hello fellow lovers of books! How was your weekend? Mine was less of the usual "Let's clean out a closet" and more of the Fun Times. I did some free spa-ing and then there was a live hockey game. I spent much of the time asking, "What was that whistle for?" not being sporty. It was nice because I had a stressful week, one of those where all the little things pile up and make me scream, "Calgon Take Me Away!" You know what I'm talking about.

The end of the year is glaring at us from our TBR piles. I'm very ashamed of my "Borrowed from Mom" pile. I have quite a mountain going on there. She lent me a lot of Philippa Gregory though and I can only take a bit of crazy-train Gregory with long breaks between. Still, I need to either read them or lie about reading them and give them back. She's going to think I lost them. 

There were so many bookish plans for the year that I never got around to. So many books I meant to read but never got to. Next year, people, next year. 

Right now, I'm reading Someone at a Distance and it is getting good. I'm loving it. I also have Hark! A Vagrant by Kate Beaton which is good times. Next week, I'll review a couple of books. Hope you'll pop in for that.

Last night, the hubs and I watched Christmas Vacation, mostly because I love when Eddie says, "The shitter's full." Klassy.

  4. Someone at a Distance gets good all of a sudden, doesn't it? I remember that moment where I sat up a little bit straighter while reading it.

    I love Christmas Vacation. I own it and watch it a couple of times each year. I love Cousin Eddie but I also love his dog, Snot. LOL. He's just hacking up a bone...
