12 days of vacation...12 books to read...beginning Thursday. (Who voted for this calendar, anyway?)
Stay tuned for daily updates....beginning Thursday.
Fluff the pillows on the couch, bring over the fuzzy throw, get my mug ready for tea...ready for Thursday.


  1. Your pile looks great! Forge and They Call Themselves the KKK are in my #bookaday pile too. Still waiting for some to arrive at my library so I can write my #Bookday post. I'm in school through Wednesday also but got a bit of a head start over the past weekend.
    Have you read The Fanstatic Secret of Owen Jester by Barbara O'Connor? Loved it and I think kids will too...definitely read aloud potential. Reading Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes...beautifully written.

  2. Hope you enjoy Tortilla Sun!

    I love the pile of books and the goal.I have felt so swamped this fall. I think the new year means changes in my priorities. Cheers,
