The Passion of the Purple Plumeria by Lauren Willig (#10 in the series) yesterday while I was doing laundry and some massively ignored house work. Talk about a nice introduction to the weeks ahead.
Okay, so I wish I could say that I don't have grading over the break, but I do. Not the normal load that I have had in the past, and at least I have two weeks to pick away at it, and not just a millisecond or my bedtime to do it all. I'm ready for sleep and plenty of reading. I'm still not sure why this year is kicking my butt, but it is, and I just have to keep at it until I have breaks where I can collapse into a heap of fatigue. Sounds delightful and cheery of me to share, doesn't it? There is no Scroogery going on here! There is only happy, good will!
Now, do I really have a "Top of" list for 2013??? That's the next thing I have to put my brain to this week. Maybe I'll read something fantastic that I can add to the list.
What about you? Have you read anything great so far that you know you'll add to the list? And, what will you be reading over this holiday break?
By the way, you really should check out Neil Gaiman reading A Christmas Carol at The New York Public Library in the link below. It really made my day to get a little of that holiday cheer. His reading starts at about minute 11:00. Enjoy!
