It's Monday - Does this weather make anyone else tired?

Let's see, what shall I tell you, lovely people who stop by my blog? Once again, I failed to post a review on Friday (guilty face). I blame it squarely on Christmas, people. I ordered Christmas cards on Thursday night and it is a lot of work deciding which cute picture of your kid to send to people. So after working all day Friday, I came home, did the dinner thing, put the little guy to bed, and promptly passed out on the sofa. The kind of passing out where your husband rouses you after midnight and suggests that you sleepily stumble up to your bed. 

There was also napping on Saturday. I am going to chalk this phenomenon up to the cold weather, dark evenings, and allergies...yup, I'm the only person who suffers from winter allergies. Go figure.

I feel like I'm having a sort of slow reading period, but I realize that is not particularly true. I'm just reading books with 500 pages or more, which take a while.

Still here? Awesome. I'm putting together a sort of read-a-long thing for F Scott Fitzgerald for next year. I've never done anything like this before, but I'm excited. Check back on Thursday for details? Thanks! 

Now about those books...

    No worries about not posting reviews "on time". I get that way too!! I'm like oooh nooo I have to review this book immediately and get all sad when I don't hahah. Merry Christmas!!

  2. NO worries, I have been the same way - but in my case I am getting some reading done, mainly because I have no energy to do anything else.... so bad! I have much to do for Christmas yet including gifts and putting up the tree.

  3. My book club read Half the Sky and it was an incredible book and discussion. I'm curious to hear what you think of Dovekeepers. I've been wanting to read that. Have a good week!
