"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

It's Monday!! What Are You Reading???

This great meme is hosted by Sheila at
"Book Journey".
It's a great way to start the week and
find out what other bloggers are reading.
My To-Be-Read pile has grown to an
unbelievable number thanks to this meme.
I don't know how the rest of you fared this past week but I had a few obstacles that cut into my reading time.  Online Christmas shopping, decorating the house for the holidays, and a wonderful boys basketball game (we won!).  Those were the good things, now the bad, major internet issues,  a beautiful blizzard that left between 10-12 inches and high winds making even bigger drifts and a power outage, and I couldn't find my book light in the dark.  lol  We did have fun playing Catch Phrase (battery operated) until the lights came back on and the candles sure made the house look pretty.  Today is just plain cold. Perfect cozy up in fron t of the fireplace and read weather.

10-12" and a blizzard!! Ugh and I thought we had it bad LOL! Well it does sound like perfect weather to curl up and read books and watch movies. I did all of my Christmas online too, isn't it great to not have to fight the traffic and the crowd??
Well I am curious about the Diva series, I'll have to check those out and I have seen Macomber EVERYWHERE! Movies and books. I'll have to read her stuff sometime.
Hope your week goes well!

Sorry to hear u have had such bad weather.
We were lucky that we missed the worst of the snow in our part of the UK, though I hear Scotland is still bad.
We are expecting more bad weather by Thurs so we will see.

Keep warm and enjoy ur reading!
