It's Monday, What Are You Reading? - December 26

Happy 2nd day of Christmas everyone!  I have to admit that I was not planning to participate in this meme this week, only because the holiday is so busy!  But today is turning into a quiet day and I need to go to the grocery store, which means I need something to be an excuse not to go to the grocery store, so I thought I would put up a quick update.

Our Christmas was quite nice and I promise there will be pictures for this coming Saturday Snapshot (I'm off to write that post as soon as I finish this one.  As I said, I need an excuse not to go to the grocery store).  I ended up fighting a cold, which is still lingering on, but that is pretty normal for me for Christmas.

I'm not sure what the rest of the week will hold for me--I do have a jury summons for Thursday, but I've been told by people in the know that most cases are settled this week, so who knows what will happen.  The hubs and I have talked about going up to his dad's place for New Year's but, again, I'm not quite sure that will come to fruition.  So, my big plans for this week are to READ!  I have only one book left to finish to meet my Goodreads goal and I know I can do it (my Jolabokaflod book is quite good!)

I toyed with the idea of doing some challenges next year, but ultimately decided against it.  I have some goals...I'll probably set my Goodreads goal at 100 books again and I really, really need to make a dent in my TBR (spoiler: there will be a big GAIN in the TBR with this month's update....thanks to the new list of books for my book club!).  I'm planning a 2016 retrospective post on January 11th, where I'll dig a little deeper into things.

I hope you all have a fantastic end of the year and I wanted to leave this part of the post with this gem I found on Instagram (it might take a second to load....)
