Monday Rambles

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m about turkey-ed out. I think I can go another year without even smelling the bird. Ugh.

Cranberry Shortbread Cake on the other hand…I could eat that every day. Or, well, maybe once a month. Don’t want to push it. Still want to try it with raspberries….

Thankfully Reading Weekend was a welcome R&R time for me. I just wish I’d had a little more time to read! We wound up going Christmas shopping Saturday. It’s good to be that much closer to being through with present shopping, but we were gone all. day. long. Here is what I did manage to read:

Finished Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card. Be happy Chris, I LOVED IT. Oh. my. goodness. LOVE.

Read Owly, Volume 5: Tiny Tales by Andy Runton. Waaaaay cute.

Read Around the World by Matt Phelan, which was awesome. Completely what I expect from Mr. Phelan, and more.

Read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, adapted by Nancy Butler. This is the graphic novel edition Marvel put together. I’m not surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The art was lovely and the text was faithful to Ms. Austen. Win!

Also started Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor, made more headway with Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm by Philip Pullman, and of course, with the Count. All in all, I read about 770 pages. Not bad, I think!

That’s all for now. I have to go get ready to go to work, where I haven’t been in over a week. And try not to cry about it. *sigh* Have a great week!
