Our Week in Books #50

Week 50? Seriously? Eek! Where has the year gone? Etc, etc…

I mostly updated Goodreads last week, but need to add this week’s and work out where I went wrong between spreadsheet and Goodreads (totals don’t match) but that can all wait. More review books I wasn’t expecting, which is lovely, plus the prize we won from Okido 🙂

I then popped into Mostly Books just to say hello, and ended up taking advantage of the Christmas voucher. Oops 😉 Double oops, I also ‘accidentally’ took advantage of The Book People’s 20% off. But some of that is gifts, and it’s not arrived so it will go onto next week’s list.

I’ve not really been reading. It’s the depression mainly. Annoyingly I got stuck on a review book that actually I liked. But because it was the book I was reading when I got stuck reading, I’m finding it hard to finish. Which I feel bad about because the author sent it to me. But I’m going to have to just put it aside and read other books until I can start again and give it the attention it deserves.

Still not managing to get into the ‘Christmas spirit’. False joy doesn’t work for me. But excited children might. I’ll keep trying to get better.
