Yet here it is, 4:00, and here I sit in my pajamas, still on the computer. As are the kids.
Woo-hoo! It's a holiday!
I spent three hours going through my email from the past two days. THAT is a problem. I have such FOMO where it comes to articles and blog posts that I feel a need to fall down every rabbit hole.
Plus, I missed an email from my sister asking if she could come over on New Year's Eve. SORRY, PEG! I LOVE YOU!
I also updated my reading form I created last year. Every time I enter a book on Goodreads, I enter it on this form too, and at the end of the year all I had to do was push a button, and it graphed all my results. Three cheers for Google Forms.
Here's a link to a copy of this year's form if you want to make your own copy and play around with it.
I had TOO FEW RESPONDENTS to my survey on what I should read next, but I am going to ignore that fact, because in each case, there was still a clear winner.
The first three books I am reading in 2017, as chosen by a small but magnificent group of people are:
- A Gentleman in Moscow
- The Girl Who Drank the Moon
all of which I'm pretty excited about. Also--I'm going to read The Wrath and the Dawn for my first Dumbledore's Army selection, and Ten Days a Madwoman for my next consideration in my Cybils committee work. So I've got my first five books of the year planned out, which is about five books further than I usually plan ahead.
I think I am just going to accept that today is NOT a day for productivity and go settle in with one of those books. Happy reading, happy new year!
