I hope everyone had a great holiday.  Mine was nice and quiet, minus the horrendous loss of the Celtics to the Magic.  Very sad.  We had a nice Christmas Eve with Anna and her family and got to see The Girl as Gabriel in the Christmas Pageant at her church.  She did wonderfully.

I didn’t receive any books this week, which is good for me.  I have a bunch I want to finish up before the end of the year, but I’d love to hear about what books you received and are excited to read.  Leave a comment about it.

Otherwise, hop over to Let Them Read Books to see what others received.
