Booksie's Shelves, December 1, 2017

How in the heck did it get to be December 1st?  This year has sped by and now we're in the busy holiday season.  Our Thanksgiving was nontraditional, to say the least.  We decided to skip the cooking this year and go to a big hotel buffet.  The only problem was that by the time we got there, a family member was sick and couldn't go inside.  So we cancelled and went back home.  Since I hadn't planned on cooking, there was nothing to cook so my husband made a frozen pizza for his lunch and later we had bacon and eggs for supper.  Hopefully, our Christmas will be a bit more traditional.  I did complete a reading goal this year.  I read Moby Dick and loved it!  Hopefully in the coming year I'll get to more of the classics and chunksters on my own shelves.  I've been transistioning to electronic ARC's this year so there are fewer books coming in the door but here's what's come lately:
