The Bilbiophile Files - 1/5/16

And here we are in a new year...how did your reading plans end up for last year? I was able to meet my goal of 84 books for the second year in a row and I completed a simple A to Z title challenge. I'm now choosing another reading challenge for this year. I'll share when I eventually make up my mind...

In the meantime, I'm well stocked to get right into some good books again this year and that box of UFOs should give me lots of listening time!! It's OK, tho, you can say it: "Sarah, you're a little overstocked." Don't I know it! Those books were not all supposed to come in at the same time. Oops!

Can you believe I didn't do any hexies last night or this morning? I wanna get that Delectable Mts UFO done and I've got a good book on the stereo. And that good book on my iPhone has kept me out walking in the single digit weather. The third and fourth walks were absolutely dreaded but the weather should now be warming up...

Finished Books:
V is for Vengance
The Dressmaker of Khair Khana
Year of Wonders
Hearts in Atlantis
The Dangerous days of Daniel X
Son of a Witch
Telegraph Days
A Bat in the Belfry

On my home stereo: Speaking in Bones
On my nightstand: A Life in Men
On my iPhone:  NYPD Red 2

And now it's your turn!! What books/patterns/magazines/cereal boxes have you read in the last month??!!

I love that you have "books" in all your place and devices! You're well-covered, my friend!! If I'm remembering correctly, you got your "Z" book in earlier (December), right? Well done on the A-Z challenge! I did try the Kitchens of the Midwest, by the way ... oddly charming read. I was mostly pleased with the ending. LOL! I can NOT believe you've done *no* hexie stitching in the past 24. For shame! Hahahaha!! Our stitcher's meet tonight and since I've finished up with my birthday club hexies, I'll work on stitching up some Chrysanthemums!! Happy reading!! :)
