Update: Yuletide reading

Ah, December. We meet again. This year you have come to me damp, drizzly, occasionally pouring. But that’s alright. More time to be indoors reading.


This week especially I’ve been devoting every spare (and some not-so-spare) moments to reading. We’re having a pretty low-key Christmas this year and my mother is not feeling well. (She’s due in June with baby #11!) So we are not participating in the numerous Christmastime activities offered this holiday season. As a result, I’ve stayed stranded in book world for quite a while-not that I have any problem with this.

I’ll be posting reviews for these later, but for now I wanted to give an update on where I stand with my books. (These are my December statistics, so far.)

You may notice I’m reading a ton at the same time. This is quite normal for me; I’ve always been an overlapping-reader. However, I’ve grown curious about the reading habits of others and am thinking of doing some polls/survey type things in the spring. Let me know in the comments whether or not you think this is a good idea and/or if it’s one you’d be interested in.

So, tell me a story now; how’s your December going? Read a lot? What do you think of my December reading so far? I can’t wait to hear from you!

  1. I know! I’d love to see how different people read. Most people I’ve asked agree with you; 2-3 is max. I just need to set apart some time and actually set up a questionnaire.
