It's Monday and the reading is slow

Hey bookish friends. How are you doing?

I am feeling the December slump very seriously. There are a million things to do. I am having a tough time getting more than one or two posts up each week and even the reading is slowing down. I pretty consistently read two books a week, but this week saw me only finishing Wally Lamb's I'll Take You There. I'm still working through Miroslav Volf's The End of Memory and I'm also reading Upstream, a lovely collection of essays on reading, writing, and nature by Mary Oliver. If you are looking for something quiet and beautiful, that collection would certainly fit the bill.

             The End of Memory: Remembering Rightly in a Violent World      Upstream: Selected Essays

How are you all doing with the reading and the blogging and the holiday prep?


  1. I'm really looking forward to the new Wally Lamb so I hope you enjoyed it! My weeks had a good amount of reading but my blogging definitely slowed down.

  2. Yes, same here! SO busy - this week will be the same. Big family gathering this weekend coming up, then we will have a little quiet time at home (until after Christmas when we travel to another big family gathering!). 'Tis the season, right? I do hope to squeeze in a few more books this month - particularly the ones my husband gave me for Christmas LAST year! Crazy, right? MY TBR shelves just keep piling up!

    Enjoy your books this week -


    Book By Book

  3. This month is crazy, isn’t it? I hope life slows down for you so you can get some reading done. Have a great week!
