Dropping in from my hiatus to express my gratitude to those of you who have "checked in" on me cyberwise and to also wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving.
I've been perusing your blogs, and I'm constantly entertained by all of your witty, wise and heartfelt posts about everything from writing to parenting to relationships and beyond.
Along with Christmas decorations (which I'll be putting up tomorrow), this time of year brings out all of the new reading challenge posts for the remainder of 2011 as well as the year to come. As I've almost reached my Goodreads goal of fifty books this year (only one to go!), I thought I would get my goals in writing for the upcoming month to keep my scattered brain on track.
I'm going for the "Buddy The Elf" level and planning on reading 5-9 holiday themed books before the end of December.
I'm aiming for the "Serial Mistleto-er" level here.
I'm going with the "Christmas Tree" level on this one which is 5 or more holiday books by January 6th. And I'll probably throw in the "Fa La La La Films" bonus level because who doesn't like Christmas movies?
I've already got some wonderful books lined up to read:
Holidays On Ice by David Sedaris
Miss Read's Christmas by Dora Saint
Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle
A Christmas Memory & One Christmas by Truman Capote
A Child's Christmas In Wales by Dylan Thomas
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
The Gift Of The Magi by O. Henry
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg
I'll be returning to regular Tuesday and Thursday posts starting December 6th. Talk to you all soon!
