Happy Friday!

What are you reading? Is it for one of the challenges? Just for fun, are you going to do any black Friday or cyber Monday shopping?

Re: Happy Friday!

  • I'm reading Leaving Time. So far I'm enjoying it. I'm only 20% in though.

    I will look for cyber Monday deals. I will skip Black Friday though. I don't do crowds!

  • I'm about 3/4 of the way through (listening to) Fangirl and am really liking it!

  • I'm almost done reading Dreams of Gods and Monsters, I should finish today. I'm listening to 14 by Peter Clines. These are #53 and 54 for the year.

    I will likely do some online shopping on both black Friday and cyber Monday. No going out in the crowds for me. I spent far too many years working at Toys R Us to even consider going out. It makes me ragey.

  • I am currently working on:

    City of Thieves by David Benioff for my IRL bookclub


    Boy's Life by Robert McCammon.

    I am about 1/2 way through each of them and they are both okay.  They are books #111 and #112 for the year.
    90 books in 2015?
  • I am between books at the moment and not sure what I will pick up next. I think it will either be the first graphic novel in Saga or maybe The Otherworld Nights anthology that Kelley Armstrong just released. I am still around 135 for the year.

    I usually peruse Amazon throughout that weekend. My H needs a new tool chest, so we might browse the adds to see if there are any good ones on sale.

    I'm 29% of the way through HP and the OotP. I'm enjoying my reread. I am also making a stack of books to read once I finish haha.

    I do both. I go out and shop on Black Friday, though I refuse to go after Thanksgiving Dinner. We will probably head out around 10 or 11 pm once all the family has left. We typically come home around 3 or 4 am and get some sleep and go back out in the morning. I meet up with a friend or sister or MIL at some point too. 

    The crowds don't bother me too much and I only get things that are a really good deal. I'm hoping to get some new stuff for the house and clothes on sale. I usually go to help MIL shop for her grandkids.

    I like Cyber Monday but I have to work this year so I may not be able to shop online as much, but I'll try.
  • I am reading Becoming Calder. I am about halfway through and enjoying it so far. I also have Mean Streak and What Alice Forgot checked out from the library that I will probably work on this weekend. Not for any challenges, just for fun. I already hit my yearly goal. I haven't been reading much lately because I've been busy and super tired.

    I will probably check out the Cyber Monday sales but there is no way will I go out on Black Friday

  • I'm reading Catching Air by Sarah Pekkanen.  It's just for fun.  And if I do any shopping it'll be Cyber Monday stuff. I also don't do crowds.
  • I haven't gotten in much reading time. Still reading Revival and Some Luck. I am loving Revival, but Some Luck is just ok. 

    I don't do Black Friday, I really hate what it's become. I will check out some Cyber Monday deals, and take advantage if I see a great deal on something I was planning on getting anyway. I do participate in Small Business Saturday. That my favorite, and a lot of the communities and stores around here make it a really fun day and offer snacks and goodies.

  • I'm reading The Broken by Shelley Coriell and Present Shock by Douglas Rushkoff. I really like the Broken, but the serial killer creeps me out too much and I have trouble reading so I have to go back and forth between this and my non-fiction book so I'm not all sleep deprived from bad dreams about brutal deaths. 

    I'm also listening to The Girl with All the Gifts, which I loved from the very beginning.

  • I'm reading Open Road Summer by Emery Lord. I am about halfway through and am really not feeling it. I don't really care whether I finish this. It's sad, because I really want to like it. I have been in a bit of a slump lately. I think a HP reread is in my future.

    No Black Friday shopping for me. I used to go and loved but it has just morphed into this crazy thing that I don't really want to be a part of. I will check out some local stores on Small Business Saturday, namely my local bookstore, and some Cyber Monday deals.


  • I am reading The Dream Thieves and it is #75 for the year.  I love it!

    I don't go out shopping on Black Thursday/Friday because I hate crowds but Kohls is starting their BF sales online on Monday so I will be taking advantage of that.

  • I was reading Dragonfly in Amber but I just can't get past the first chapter!
    So, I'm reading nothing right now I guess.

    No black friday shopping here.  My only plans involve turning my house into a place that the holidays exploded in.  Probably no cyber monday stuff either.

  • Nothing, I have a stack of books from the library that I keep renewing. I'm going to read at least 10 pages of something, I just don't know what.

  • I'm reading The Silkworm and loving it!  I am looking forward to curling up under a blanket, with a glass of wine, and reading it tonight.

    I'm listening to Mistress Shakespeare and it too is awesome!  Thank you to whoever recommended it as an audio book- it is so good, I tend to sit in my car long after arriving at my destination because I don't want to stop it.

  • I am doing a re-read of To Kill a Mockingbird.

    As for shopping, Black Friday has only really become a thing here the last few years. I don't get it. I will check out some Cyber Monday deals, but only if they are good.
