Mailbox Monday ~ December 23rd

NoelMailboxMailbox Monday was created by The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their home last week. Currently on tour, it is hosted by a different blog each month.

The December host is Rose City Reader.

I was expecting the stores to be crowded today so instead of finishing up my Mailbox Monday post I ran out this morning to do the last of my Christmas shopping. I suppose I could have done the post last night but I can be a bit of a procrastinator. If I wasn’t, the holiday shopping would be done already. To my delight, the stores were not crowded yet, sales associates were plentiful, checkout lines were wide open and I got almost everything done in 3 hours. Woooo hoooo! This afternoon I’ll be baking cookies and listening to an audiobook.

As for new books, I received a few audio downloads. Audio is pretty much all I have been reading the past week. This time of year, as in dark and cold, sitting down at night with a book, my blanket and a hot cup of chocolate tends to put me to sleep, even if it’s a really good story.

    Some good reading ahead, I’ll be watching for your thoughts. I skipped out today too, and was surprised to find I didn’t wait in line either. Merry Christmas.
