Happy Holidays–taking a little break…


I’ll be taking a little time off over the holidays but I have a few last minute bloggy things to chat about before I go.

***

Geeky Bloggers Book Blog
I’ll be joining #FitReaders (formally known as #BookBlogWalkers) co-hosted  by The Geeky Blogger and That’s What I’m Talking About next year.

I’m going to be turning the BIG 5-0 next year and it’s a fun way to keep on track and stay motivated with your 2015 fitness goals.

Headed for the homestretch!

B5f2SiPIgAACh7uAs of this writing I have read 194 books this year. I’m going to go for 200. *crossing my fingers* that I make it. I would hate to be soooo close then crash and burn. lol

Here are a few books that are on the December TBR pile.

Donate!

The ARCycling Program is one of my favorite places to help clear off my shelves. You fill out the donation form – they hold a session once a month, handle all the details – you send out the books.

These are the books I’ll be donating for January. They haven’t set a date yet so I would suggest following them on Twitter so you know when the next session is up.

I hope everyone is having a safe and happy holiday season so far!

I’ll be back on January 29th with my favorite books of 2014 and January 2nd with a big giveaway to kick off  2015!

  1. Happy Holidays Karen!

    Are you sure you are remembering your age correctly? You sure don't look anywhere need old enough to be turning 5-0.

  4. Hehe - I'll only turn 49 next year (December baby), so maybe you can tell me what it's like when the time comes? ;P Anyway, don't worry, I'll join the "very immature 50" team myself...and I bet we'll be in good company! Oh, and good luck on your fitness goal. My fave sport is, umm, typing on keyboards...I'm sure it does burn some calories.
    Happy Holidays!

    1. Other than a few issues - bad back, knees starting to hurt - things have been pretty good. I definitely feel older but not 50 - whatever that's supposed to feel like lol

      Fit for me is doing a little something every day - not anything crazy. I realized last year I just can't do those intense workouts - see bad knees above. I just want to stay flexible and attempt to retain muscle/bone mass so it's stretching/yoga/and weights (low impact) that I'm focused on.

      I'm all for intense reading/computer cardio!

  6. I'm loving the new background Karen! And good luck in meeting your goal! I'm about 6 books shy of my goal myself, looks like I need to tuck in for a read-a-thon at some point this week!

    See you next year! <3 <3

    1. What was your goal?

      Mine started at 75 but then I kept upping it each time. I'm almost positive I can make the 200 mark.

      Good luck to you!
