Since my last update:
I finished reading Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie. I’d put that for a while and it was fun to get back to it. I’d only read short stories by Agatha Christie before and it was nice to read a full length book featuring Miss Marple.
I started reading The Ridge by Michael Koryta. I’ve had it for a while and kept meaning to start it but other books kept catching my eye first. The fact that it fits the last category I need for this year’s What’s in a Name challenge for a book with a topographical feature in the title finally got me to pick it up. It’s just as good as I’ve come to expect from Michael Koryta. There’s a mystery but also a bit of a supernatural element and I’m hoping to get some time to really immerse myself in this one.
My current audiobook is Death Without Company by Craig Johnson. This is the second book in the Walt Longmire series featuring a Wyoming Sheriff and it’s just as good as the first one. I really enjoy George Guidall’s narration of this series. He’s excellent as the voice of Walt.
I’m trying to also continue reading a graphic novel along with a print book and an audio. The mix of three formats seems to work well for me. I’m almost done with the latest in the Unwritten series by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. It’s such a fun series for booklovers because it’s all wrapped around how stories impact public opinion and history.
Other than books and reading:
The Holiday stuff is winding down and I’m looking forward to some time off work between Christmas and New Years. We’re college football fans and with Bowl Season kicking off yesterday we’re soaking up all the college football we can before the long stretch between the National Championship game and next season’s kickoff. There are 35 bowl games and we’ll try to watch at least part of all of them. You never know when one will surprise you and turn out to be a great game. The last part of yesterday’s New Mexico Bowl was a perfect example of that.
Today is race day for us. It’s the Holiday Half Marathon (for The Hubster) and 5k (for me).
Checking my phone photos from this week:
We had a tree incident this week. Actually for Abby’s first Christmas I’m surprised it took this long.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
