This weekend I totally got all my Christmas Shopping DONE! I also got 70% of my Christmas Wrapping done (went old school paper/ribbons/bows instead of bags). Finally I decided after seeing pictures of Book Christmas Trees that I would create my own. It was a total blast! My Christmas Book Tree is full of Vampires, Zombies,Killers, and Romance –oh my.
I am technically around from now till the 21st but will probably not be very active. Without going into much detail, I have been in a bit of a social funk for a couple of weeks and I just need to recharge. This applies to online and in person. This is totally the wrong season to get into one of these funks but I have no idea how to get out of it without acknowledging it. So, in an effort to acknowledge the funk and move on–I am just going to go with my mood and be a little anti-social.
I am officially taking a blogging break from Dec 21st to Jan 3rd! I will schedule Top Off Tuesday posts but I wont’ be around the blogsphere at all. I am going to be doing family things and then flying to Omaha, NE for New Years!
2013 is going to be a bit old school on the blog. I have a few outstanding requests from Edelweiss and NetGalley I plan on fulfilling but otherwise it will be the year of tackling my TBR. I won’t be buying many books next year either so it will be a bunch of older reads. I could almost call next year the “Year of Books Published before 2013″ (except for those few outstanding requests and series books that will be coming out). This is due to budget and the fact that I have entirely to many unread books on my shelves that need some love. I will probably only be doing the series challenge from Kelly and Amanda next year. It seems to fit in with what the blog will be like already. Yes, that is a bit of a cheat challenge but at least I didn’t sign up for an audiobook challenge. That would totally be cheating.
In case I don’t speak to you before the New Years–I hope everyone has a very Happy Holiday Season and a WONDERFUL NEW YEAR!
