The Sunday Salon–Holiday Reading
Well, I have had another bad reading week. Before this week I have been steadily reading and finishing books but I think Thanksgiving threw a wrench in everything and I haven’t quite recovered yet. As fun as it is to get together with friends and family during the holidays, it sure does cut into my reading time. We were out of town for a few days before Thanksgiving and I actually read more late at night while we were staying with family than I have since we got home. There is something about night in a quiet house that isn’t your own that makes you want to seek out comfort in a book.
When it comes to the holidays do you read different types of books? I think sometimes I am a little bah humbug about it all because I am a bit of a minimalist when it comes to holidays. I don’t want a lot of what I am reading to reflect what is going on in my real life, though I am considering reading Let It Snow if I have time before the end of the year. I really feel the time ticking away on the year and I always try and make sure I get my goal books read. So there is very little holiday reading going on.
Today I am going to finish up If I Stay by Gayle Forman. So far it has been interesting but a little underwhelming. When I am done with it I am finally going to dive into Crossed. I have been putting off reading it so I could come to it ready to read and I think I am finally there. Last night I also started In the Garden of Iden by Kage Baker which I am really enjoying so far. Do you have any books you want to make sure you read before the end of the year?
