Hello everyone! I hope that you're all just fine this morning - I certainly am! :) Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update on how I'm doing so far.
Well, as Sunday, December 25th is actually Christmas Day, Mareena and I taped last week's show - Sunday, December 18th's - to be rebroadcast for this week. So that means that we get to have Christmas Day off. We are so excited that we get the chance to relax and do nothing for the entire day!
Anyway, I'm still working through an amazing backlog of crossword puzzles and sudoku puzzles from the newspaper. So far, I've done approximately 44 sudoku and crossword puzzles from the newspaper, although I have also done some sum-doku puzzles from my puzzle books, too! I haven't really finished an entire sum-doku puzzle book from my collection since Saturday, December 3rd - I have been working through partial puzzles from the moderately difficult to extremely difficult levels!
So, as regards my own reading, the most recent book that I've read was The Crooked Branch: A Novel by Jeanine Cummins, which I finished on Thursday, December 15th! Mareena told me that she had put this book on our joint wishlist about three years ago, and that it had just become available in late November. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it was just wonderful.
Since then, I have been trying to narrow down my choices for another book to read. I finally picked Next, After Lucifer by Daniel Rhodes, and started reading it yesterday evening - Monday, December 19th! According to Goodreads, as of today - Tuesday, December 20th - I've actually read 45 pages out of 272 in Next, After Lucifer by Daniel Rhodes; or approximately 16 percent. Since my copy of Next, After Lucifer by Daniel Rhodes is actually 258 pages, reading 45 pages means that I have read approximately 17 percent of the story so far.
