It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

This great meme is hosted by Sheila at
Book Journey”.
It’s a great way to start the week and
find out what other bloggers are reading.
My To-Be-Read pile has grown to an
unbelievable number thanks to this meme.

The start of a new year always brings a little trepidation. I always seem to overbook myself and this year is no exception. This month Great Escapes Book Tours is doing 20 Tours! 12 RUNNING AT THE SAME TIME. I have also committed myself to read and review 18 books. I may need to be committed at the end of the month 🙂

I always try to take the last 2 weeks of December off so I can enjoy my family and not feel the pressure to get on the computer first thing in the morning but with all the tour prep I didn’t get much of a break this year. Note to Self: It is okay to say No sometimes 🙂 I love what I do and am glad each day to share my thoughts on books and organize tours to promote them but downtime is good too. Mr. Dollycas has hinted about an actual vacation this year, 5 days to visit some friends. Can I do that? Turn off this computer and go away for 5 or 7 whole days? It sure sounds nice if we can afford it but I think I may go through a little cyber withdrawal. We will have to see. I just know that the last few years have not been the best for our family, there are been lots of changes, more downs than ups. 2014 was a little better but I am hoping and praying that 2015 is our year.

 

As I told you last week Santa was very nice this year! 3 New Kindle Owners - Grandson Kaden is already on expert. Natalie and Papa are still figuring things out.

  1. Everyone needs time off…even if it is only a “staycation” Looks like another good week ahead.

  2. Looks like a great line up, Lori. Best of luck to you and your beautiful family this year!

  3. Sometimes a break can be very rejuvenating.

    I loved In Hot Water…this has become one of my favorite cozies.

    Have a great week!

  4. Busy, busy, busy. And here I thought I was the only book crazy one! *lol*

  5. Met Julie Hyzy her in September, she’s a really nice and friendly woman. I was at a book signing for Denise Swanson and she was the special guest. Glad I went, love her White House Chef series….read all the books in 3 months and now on her Manor House series!

  6. Currently reading “Out of Circulation” by Miranda James – have started the Cat in the Stacks series and I’m just buzzing through the books – they are so good….
