It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Pitiful week in books for me. But I did all of my holiday baking, finished buying all Christmas presents, mailed all my cards, and am hosting my tennis team for a completely homemade lunch today so I guess I'll give myself a pass on the reading and reviewing front this week! This meme is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

Books I completed this week are:

A Round-Heeled Woman by Jane Juska
Shoes, Hair, Nails by Deborah Batterman
Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle

  1. Looks like you have an interesting set of books going right now. I had fun reading wishlist and TBR books.

  2. Thank you for your honest review of Hollywood Ending, I may have moved it down my wish list.

  3. Well done on a very productive week, sounds like you're all organised for Christmas :)

    Are you going to wipe the slate clean and start off with no reviews in 2011 ... just wondering, I'm still deciding what to do with my review backlog LOL

    If I don't get back here before Christmas ... enjoy the festivities and stay safe, healthy and happy :)

  4. You have a lot of reviews true, but then you have got through a lot of work as well. Fair exchange!

  5. You had a fantastic week! I havent even started my cards and decided I am going to do a happy New Year card instead... just too busy now :)


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
