If you aren't a reader of my other blog, then you may not know that I broke my foot. I wish I could say that it happened while I was doing something exciting like snowboarding, but I was just walking down the hall at work when my ankle turned. This has happened to me before and I've always recovered quickly, so imagine my surprise when I found out that I actually broke something!
Anyway, I have to stay off my feet for a while, which means good news for my blog readers. I didn't do much reading this weekend because I took that time to clear off my DVR. There won't be any new episodes of my favorite shows over the holidays and I've got a stack of library books waiting for my attention. So don't be surprised if you see a flurry of activity on this blog over the next week or so.
With Christmas falling on Friday and my current employer's generous holiday policy, I have five days off for the holiday this year. My family doesn't participate in a lot of Christmas activities, so that translates into about 4.5 days of boredom. Grown-ups don't get toys under the tree to keep them occupied, and the kids don't always share with me :-). That's why I make sure to do a library run before Christmas Eve. Sitting at home without entertainment is a guaranteed path to Christmas sadness for me.
QUESTION: Do you line up books to read for the holidays?
