**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
This is our last week before Christmas, and I’m really feeling the
holiday spirit take over. We’ve had some rainy days this past week, and it was delightful. Yes, imagine that, since this blog is about “Rainy days and Mondays” making me blue. LOL. But then, remember, “books chase away the blues.”
The week of reading was kind of slow at first, then it picked up, ending with a total of 3 books and 1 novella. My total for the Read the Books You Buy Challenge: wait for it! 99 books!! I
currentlyjust finished reading my 100th book, which is the goal I had hoped for.
So far my ratio is: 100 books read/138 books purchased, once I read the 100th book…and if I don’t buy any more.
I might read even more…since there are still two reading weeks. Of course, the challenge is for purchased books, and I’ll also be reading some review books.
So….with rain outside, and a little more interiors work…it turned out to be a good week to stay indoors and read, watch movies, etc. I also watched Season I of Goliath, on Amazon Prime. Wow! Now I want another season.
Let’s look at the week, and have a glass of something sparkling:

I’ve selected my book, snapped a couple of photos of me holding it…and that’s all I’m saying until January 1, 2017!
