**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.
As we count down the final days of 2017, we also have our eye set on what lies ahead in 2018. On January 1st, I will be writing my First Book of the Year post at An Interior Journey, with Sheila, Book Journey, leading the event.
In the past week, I read and reviewed three books, and completed my Read the Books You Buy Challenge with a total of 121 purchased books read and reviewed.
Christmas was a lovely and quiet event with family…and a follow-up of reading and movies. On Netflix I watched half of Season I of Fuller House…but I’m not sure if I will continue. It has been too long since the Full House years, and I’m not really connected to the characters.
In the year ahead, I hope to choose books carefully, since some of this year’s picks were underwhelming, with a few DNFs, sigh. Here’s to a great year of reading! Let’s have a cup of coffee and chat about last week.

I also have a list for next week that includes:

That was my week…what did yours look like? On Friday night, I enjoyed this repast at CPK…not my usual soup, but pizza, salad, and my strawberry margarita. I had leftover pizza for today’s lunch!
