Happy Sunday everyone! As promised last week, this week was unproductive and full of lazing around. My husband got whatever my son had the week before and now my son has it again. Let me tell you upper respiratory infections coupled with double ear infections really stink!!! My little man has been cranky, tired, and restless all at the same time ALL WEEK. He’s finally starting to feel some better and the fevers are FINALLY gone. We stayed home today from church just to be on the safe side that he is no longer infectious.
Reading wise it was a very productive week. The #HoHoHoRAT ended on Tuesday. I managed to read 4 novels and 2 novellas…peeps that’s 1,407 pages in 6 days!!!! I really didn’t realize it was all that much until I decided to add it up. That was a heck of a lot of reading 😀
After the read-a-thon, I finished Gerrard Cowan’s The Machinery which is an epic fantasy. I highly suggest you pick up a copy! I also read a couple of novellas this week that’ve been sitting in my TBR pile. All in all it was definitely a good reading week. What did you read?
The first paragraph of this book has me hooked: “Bombs have nicknames. Innocuous, happy nicknames. The thundering yellow cloud licking our flightwing’s windows has got to be a Baby Sunshine.” Yep this is going to be epic…I just know it 😀

This Week’s Book Fix
What are you reading this week?
In the US this week it is Thanksgiving, a time to remember all we are grateful for. And seeing as I am grateful for my family I’ll be taking a couple days off from blogging to spend time with them and my parents who are coming up to spend the holiday with us. No big plans are in store for us. With little man and my husband both just getting over colds, we will have a light dinner and nothing more.
Usually I put up our Christmas decorations this weekend, BUT seeing as that is already done (yep, little man has me wrapped around his finger) I plan to relax and read by the light of the tree. What are you reading this week? Any big holiday plans?
