It's Monday! What are you reading? 12/24/12

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey.

Happy last Monday of 2012! 


Have I mentioned that I love this meme? It makes me feel all organized.

After that I'm going to see where my holiday reading time takes me. Perhaps I'll get going on the 2013 TBR Pile Challenge and read something from my list.

Other Blog Business:

A Liebster Blog Award for little ol' me? Thanks Rebecca!

I've never really used Goodreads but I plan on changing that for 2013. I've cleared all of my info there...deleted all the random books I had saved, etc. I'm hoping to take advantage of it to keep track of my books and to stay a bit more organized. This link should take you to my profile...hook up with me there! I'm also on Twitter and Facebook and I'd love to see you there as well!

I want to wish each and every one of you a wonderful holiday!

    I go through phases with staying organised on it, at the moment it's definitely not up to date!

    Merry Christmas :)

  5. Hopefully Goodreads helps you out! I started using it a few years back and I honestly don't know how I managed without it. My TBR list is edging close to the 800 mark, but it makes it easier when trying to pick out my next read. I'll have to pop over there and add you!

    Merry Christmas :)

    1. I would rate a book on there every once in a while but I wasn't taking full advantage so it was a mess ;) I cleared it out so I can start fresh!

  7. I got your Goodreads invite. It seemed odd that you had 0 books, so I'm glad you explained it here! Happy Holidays!

  8. I was thinking the same thing as Joy about Goodreads but I figured you probably just joined the site. I'll be sure to become a fan of your page on FB. Happy reading and happy holidays!

  13. I use goodreads a lot, it keeps me organized. I'm even trying to add all the books I've read in previous years.

    Have a Merry Christmas.

  14. I hope your Christmas was wonderful Jen! I should become more active on Goodreads too since I've been slacking off. Reading Saturday Night Widows too and excited to see your thoughts on it!

  15. Merry Christmas! I hope you had a wonderful day!

    I use Goodreads to keep track of everything I read and am currently reading. Do you use LibraryThing? I love it for keeping track of everything I own but have not yet read, the books I have read that I kept and the ones that I gave away. If you haven't, you should check it out.
