The Sunday Salon

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just a week away, and that the end of the year is two weeks away! I’ve spent the past couple of weeks doing the usual Christmassy things: buying gifts, etc. There doesn’t seem to be much point in actually decorating my apartment for Christmas, since it’s just one person. But it’s been fun seeing all the Christmas trees go up in the windows of the apartments in my apartment complex, and seeing the Christmas decorations down in the lobby. I also re-watched Love Actually, which is my favorite Christmas movie. So I’ve {kind of) gotten into the spirit of Christmas this year!

As for reading, I’ve just not done very much of it this year in comparison to other years. Usually I can read about 150 books per year, but this year I’m drastically down, with only 93 books finished (realistically only one or two more will be finished before the end of the year). Part of it is that I’ve been busy with school; and with me officially starting work on my Master’s degree in biomedical writing this spring, it looks as though I won’t get much more free time to read in the near future! We’ll see. I’m currently reading Vita Sackville-West’s Family Histories, which I’m loving but have been reading for over a week.

Happy holidays!

Well, 93 books seems like a HUGE number to me. For the last 3-4 years I've been doing a 50 book challenge - it has helped me to stop reading cr***y free newspapers on the train but has still needed a fair bit of deliberate effort. I'm impressed that you manage life well enough to read so much - especially on top of a course!T
