Welcome to the 68th Edition of My Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.

We had a really wonderful Christmas – celebrated on Christmas Eve with my brother, his boyfriend & his mom, and my stepson’s family. My stepson was too cute – we got him a laptop because he’s gotten so he really needs it for school. But since we don’t typically get him those sorts of gifts, he was in total shock. He saw the box and said, “A laptop?! No, there’s not actually a laptop in here, right?” then he opened it and saw the laptop and said, “OMG there’s really a laptop in here?!” He was still in shock, LOL! It was too cute and I feel good knowing he’ll put it to good use. And it’s well deserved, since we just got his 1st semester report card and he’s all As except for one B and that’s in a super advanced class. I also was super excited to gift my stepson’s little brother with books – because he PUT THEM ON HIS CHRISTMAS LIST! I was so excited he asked for books and it was great seeing how excited he was with my picks for him (I did a genre sampling so he can find his favorites).
In other news, I made my brother a scarf – it’s my first return to knitting and I’m really happy with how it turned out. I’ve now got three other projects to do – one scarf I’m working on for myself, then an infinity scarf for my mom, and an Outlander inspired cowl for a friend. I bought the supplies on Friday for those projects and am really excited to get started. And finally – gotta save the best for last – I scored TWO amazing book gifts for Christmas! My brother and his boyfriend bought my a Kindle Paperwhite and my boyfriend gave me & m a $100 B&N gift card!
My boyfriend wanted to get me a Kindle, but couldn’t figure out what exactly it was, let alone how to buy it (he’s not at all tech savy), so he figured he’d just give me the money he would have spent to buy books. So I lucked out and I’m set for the New Year in books 🙂 It was the best Christmas I think I’ve had yet, since it’s the first time my brother was able to openly celebrate with me and he had his Boyfriend and his Boyfriend’s mom with him – I’ve finally got the big family Christmas I’ve been dreaming about since being a kid (who didn’t get to celebrate).
All that being said, I still have Christmas brain, or maybe it’s a Christmas Hangover? Either way, I’m so scatter brained! I keep forgetting things!
COYER kicked off last week, but I’d call it a soft kick off because of the holidays. Things really get going January 1st with the first mini challenge and read-a-thon. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can still join us for COYER here, or you can just jump in on the New Year’s Read-a-thon here.
Also, if you haven’t had a chance to make your Reading Assignment list yet, you have a few days to get in for January’s start date. Sign up here!
