I received a couple of books in my mailbox last week amid all the Christmas festivities. I hope you all had a good week and (perhaps) received books or bookstore gift cards. My family no longer tries to guess if I’ve read a book or not so it’s not an issue. I love to receive gift cards though :)

A relative loaned me her copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Honestly, I’ve read so many reviews for it that I feel like I’ve read it. I’ll give it a try to see if I can come up with some good hints for simplifying. We’ve been working on our basement for the past few months.

I’m looking forward to enjoying the next two weeks celebrating Christmas with family and friends. Look for my 2015 Favorite Books post on Tuesday. If I receive any books this week I’ll write a Sunday Post. Otherwise, I’ll be back on January 1st with my First Book of 2016. I wish a Merry Christmas to all who celebrate.

Where did last week go?! Thankfully I’m feeling caught up in all things blog related and most things Christmas related.

2016 First BookI signed up for Sheila’s First Book of the Year – 2016.  I did it last year and enjoyed being part of the meme and seeing what everyone was reading at the start of the new year. My first book is by one of my favorite authors. I’ll post about it on January 1st. I hope you’ll consider joining in the fun.

It’s been a while since I wrote a Sunday post. I’m starting to feel better but I had to feature several spotlight/giveaway posts for books the past six weeks because I just couldn’t concentrate on reading. Luckily I also had a few reviews scheduled in advance when I got sick. I look forward to getting back into my reading habit. Thanks for continuing to visit Bookfan.

We saw The Martian yesterday and loved it. When my husband told me our tickets were for the 3D version I was pretty sure I wouldn’t enjoy it (I once got motion sickness from a Woody Allen film, lol). I was wrong – it was great and I recommend seeing it that way if you have a choice.

I’ll be away next week but I have a few posts scheduled. I’ll be back visiting blogs and commenting after Oct. 12th. Have a great week!
