Happy Saturday Night and Happy December!! I am a bit tired after another full day of traveling to closing yesterday and busy day today. I am starting to pack for our trip to Hawaii and have all sorts of things running in my head that I need to do! AARGH! Is anyone else feeling rushed as the holiday season starts?
Thank you to all who shared last week.
The group is fairly split on book size: six prefer smaller or mass market, five prefer larger or trade, and one said medium but I don't know where that falls. Four said it doesn't matter and two more said it doesn't matter as long as the size is consistent within a series. Texas Book Lover chose Kindle, then small to hold but bigger to read. Several people mentioned that the bigger books, trade backs, seem to have larger text. I hadn't thought of that but winnie noted that the mass market are generally less expensive. .
Black Friday shopping was also split. Five of you do not have BF in your country, but Birgit shopped online and Abby thinks it might be fun to do BF shopping. :-) Six people DO NOT Shop on BF at all; two others only shopped online.Five actually did do some shopping, although Faith Hope Cherry Tea shopped the sales earlier in the week. nrlymrtl went out to dinner and a show, which sounds like fun.

WEEK #77 Questions
Q1. Birgit asks: How often have you re-read your all-time favorite book(s)? And how often do you generally re-read books??
I don't do a lot of re-reading... especially with so many 'new' review books and new authors to read. So I guess I have to say my re-reading is very rare. I have however picked up some older classics on audio to re-read, like Farenheit 451 which is waiting for me to listen to.
Q2. My question this week: Do you send out/give Christmas cards??
A: I do send cards from my office and for several years I have sent music CD cards to my clients. This year I am sending a pop-up spinner card. We used to give cards to everyone at church and also would mail a few. I have several boxes of cards still. On the home front we send computer cards to many of our family and only give real cards to those we share Christmas day with and maybe a handful of friends.
