We are gearing up for a low-key Christmas in town. I have one more week of work, then two relaxing weeks off. If only Mr. Nomadreader worked in academia too--that would be glorious! Hawthorne and I are flying to Atlanta to celebrate the New Year. If you have tips for traveling (alone) with four-and-a-half-month olds, especially those who only drink from bottles, please share. I am immensely grateful for best friends with tons of airline miles, a first class seat, and a direct flight. We have a fantastic set-up for his first two flights.
I'm making some progress with my 2014 Book Bucket List, having finished two of the five titles. Even though I've read more books this year than any other year for which I've kept track (and I'm fairly certain any year of adulthood period), this time of year makes me feel like I'm not reading enough. Despite reading a lot of books this year, the barrage of year end lists and reflections on years in reading have me frantically adding things to my TBR, moving up books that were already one my TBR, and generally wishing I could be a full-time reader. I'm only a few pages into Euphoria by Lily King, but Hawthorne's naps permitting, I hope to spend some time with it today.
Somehow I've accumulated eight un-reviewed books, so I'll likely be posting a book review each weekday so I can begin 2015 with a clean slate.
