December Plans -  Even though December is busy month, I expect to fave plenty of free time for reading since I'm off work from December 20th through January 5th. 

I really want to read these (7) books for sure:

How was your month? Do you have any year end plans?

  2. Great reading month! We have read some of the same books (but I didn't read mine this month). I see you have The Preservationist on your "want to read" list. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  3. You had an awesome reading month. I want to listen to the audio of The Rosie Project. I also want to do more reading in December since I have time off too with the kids but last year we were out every day and I barely got any reading done in December. Hopefully this year will be calmer!

  4. I can't believe it's December tomorrow--I'm still talking about how I plan such-and-such book later in the year. As is typical, I grossly underestimate how much reading time I actually have.

    ELeanor and Park is on my list too--maybe I'll go the audio route as well.

    Enjoy your time off in December!

  6. This month's reading added a few books to my TBR pile! I am in the middle of The Rosie Project and am enjoying it so far. I got behind with my reading due to the wedding and then back issues, but the books are patient! Have a great December of reading.

  10. You had a good month Diane. I haven't done updates for so long but I should. I'll have to pop into your review for The Rosie Project. I really liked that book.

  11. Oh my, this is a wonderful reading list. You put me to shame as I have really slacked off on the reading lately. I need to sit down with a good book and get back into the groove. I will pick something out here and treat myself :) Thanks Diane and have a great week.

  12. I am hopeful that I may finish a book, any book, this month! I'm worried that it might not happen.
    I love how you plan your month, I should probably start doing that to keep me on track.
