Mailbox Monday and It's Monday what are you reading.




It has been a dull mailbox with no books coming in though several are expected. Mailbox Monday is hosted by Let them read books 


It's Monday What are you Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. For the second or is it the third week I seem to be in a reading slump. Middlemarch and Portrait of a Lady are still being read though I am
halfway through Portrait of a Lady - Middlemarch's progress is very slow.

End of year work in office and trying to tie up loose ends prior to going to Melbourne is taking up all my time.  Shopping for them as well as picking up the little myriad things they want is eating into reading time. Hopefully Melbourne will bring me back my reading mojo.

I think that sometimes we need a break from things that we like doing just the same as we need a break from work. I'm sure your reading will come back in time.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time is a great book.

I'm on vacation and the time off has given me time to finish my GoodReads challenge. Please come see what I'm reading.

I definitely go through reading slumps too. Things get so busy and it can be hard to pick up a book.

Hope you get some good reading in over Christmas!
