**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
Nice, cooler weather all week, with today, and the next two days, in the 70s. Yes, the weather report seems to start each update. lol.
Halloween came and went, leaving no impact. I never have any Trick or Treaters…not in the almost ten years I’ve been here. I only had a few Halloween decorations out…and didn’t buy candy. Because we know what happens to that candy when it is not handed out…right?
I love Thanksgiving, so those goodies are now on display. The pumpkin was out for Halloween, too; when you turn it around, there are scary creatures.
I don’t have a lot of seasonal decor…my Christmases have become even smaller each year. Usually because I go elsewhere for the holidays.
Reading…well, only THREE books this week, but I have now read 79 for my Read the Books You Buy Challenge.
I was reading a post this morning at Cleopatra Loves Books...and she has a very interesting Book Tag that helps her keep track of her TBR.
My method of keeping track is adding books purchased on one of my Curl up and Read blog pages, by month…and then linking to my reviews when they are read. Checking out my pages from 2014 through the present, I still have 22 unread books purchased in 2014; 14 for 2015; and 53 for 2016. The latter number is due to my ongoing “click to buy” mania.
But…it could be worse, right?
Now…let’s take a look at last week.
