TSS - sigh.


Too busy to do much reading this week - it's the time of year when my bookish life suffers. Even though I get most of the shopping, etc. done early, I still seem to have plenty to fill my days. Most recently, I agreed to be part of a cookie swap - 14 dozen to bake by next weekend. Boy, will I hate the work, but I will certainly be happy when I get to enjoy the fruits of the other 8 ladies' labors. =)

I did manage to finish up one book I've been working on for a LONG time - Reading Dance, an anthology edited by Robert Gottlieb. My review is posted here. It is a great anthology if you are a dance lover - biography, memoir, criticism, lots of good stuff.


Here's a picture of JoAnna, the Christmas elf. I can't wait to see her again and get some auntie time in. =)

December does seem to slow down, reading wise, doesn't it? I hope you have a great holiday season!

Aww, she's so cute!

I haven't had much time for reading (or blogging) this week, either. I love the holidays, but I'll be glad when life gets back to normal!

Too cute!

My reading has slowed down considerably this month, too. I love doing Christmasy things, but I miss all the other stuff I do all the rest of the year. It doesn't seem right that there's just not time for *all* of it. Oh well, guess I'll just have to enjoy the Christmas stuff while I can and try to get over missing the rest for a bit longer yet. :)
