I'm at home now between a Christmas-related brunch and a Christmas-related supper, and writing this quick update. After supper this evening, I'll be done with holiday festivities until early January. (This doesn't imply anything for New Year's Eve, which is a holiday that I am increasingly happy to boycott.) There's been an almost total lack of snow in my part of the world since early October, so the snow that fell yesterday was very welcome and helped me to get into the holiday mood.
I'm surprised to report that I was able to read 100 pages on Christmas Day. Unsurprisingly, I've been less successful today. In fact I wouldn't've read anything yet if I hadn't randomly woken up in the middle of the night last night and been unable to get back to sleep for about three hours for no reason. So yay?
So far I've mostly just finished reading Anthony Doerr's All the Light We Cannot See, which I liked but didn't love. Now I'm very much hoping to finish A History of Celibacy before the end of the year, but because it's non-fiction that will be a bit more of a challenge.
I hope everyone reading this has had happy holidays so far. I'll be back with more in terms of details and other thoughts later this week.
- Day 1: 101
- Day 2: 7
- Pages/Day Remaining: 109
