As usual my blogiversary got past me. Bookfan turned 7 last Wednesday. I’d like to thank everyone who visits and leaves comments. It’s so much fun to be able to discuss books with so many great readers! A big thanks to authors, publicists and publishers who’ve introduced me to so many wonderful books.

With frigid temps and several new inches of snow we stayed at home most of the week. I read a lot and watched a Netflix dvd: The Railway Man – anyone see it? Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman star. It’s based on the true story (and memoir of the same title) of Eric Lomax.

FitReaders2015

I’ve had a Fitbit for almost two years and have found it to be an amazing motivator. Although my steps took a nose dive a few months ago I’m feeling much better lately and they’re on the uptick again. Yay! So, here are my stats for my first week with the #Fitreaders:

  • Sat:  12,071
  • Sun:  12,455
  • Mon:  11,564
  • Tues:  10,475
  • Wed:  12,513
  • Thurs:  12,473
  • Fri:  6,010

I think I’ll go to a separate post for Fitreaders starting next week. I think it deserves its own post :)  Have a great week!

Last week on Bookfan:

Note: For the past couple of weeks I’ve been reading GIRL BEFORE A MIRROR by Liza Palmer. Because of the busy season I didn’t have much time to read. I decided to put it aside until after January 1st. This decision is NOT for the reason you might think. I’m loving it! But it doesn’t publish until late January 2015 and may very well end up on my favorite reads list. Since I stick to books read in the calendar year for my favorites list I want to read most of it in 2015. I can’t wait to pick it back up!

I’m currently listening to:

the duchess war - audio

and currently reading:

unfaded glory (Oct28)
