Sunday Review – 12/27/2015

Wow, Christmas was here and went already. That’s crazy! I hope everyone got everything bookish they wanted! (And everything else too.) Santa was really good to me this year and actually brought me all the books I asked for. I can’t believe it. But, “Santa” also assured me I would be getting no books for my birthday because “Santa” spent too much on books for Christmas. Somehow, I’m okay with that.

I have so many books because I also went to Goodwill this week to pick up some Goosebumps books and (of course) bought a few others as well. (But, I did have enough accumulate points to get a book free!)

I have no idea where to put them all. They’re basically just sitting in the middle of my floor because I gave up.

So, now that I’ve rambled a bit, let’s get on with what actually happened in books this last week.
