There’s some natural law that connects illness and vacation, right? I was barely two days into my break when the sniffles started. Thankfully, we don’t have any big plans for Christmas, so as long as I’m better before the move I can’t complain too much. And being sick does give me a good excuse for PJ’s and blankets, so I’ll take it.
I went almost all week without picking up the books I shared last Monday, but finally managed some time over the weekend. I’ve been feeling so picky about everything I look at or flip through, which is a frustrating type of end of the year slump. I settled on Alexandra Kleeman’s You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine and I’m loving it. Ten points to the Tournament of Books Long List. I also started reading The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee, which is my first 2016 title…there’s no turning back now.
