Gobble Gobble Gone - November 23rd Through December 6th, 2015 Recap

Sunday, December 6, 2015

**Giveaway is over.**
Your guide to what's happening at Paper Bindings.

Well, another month has come and gone. Can you believe the end of 2015 is just a few short weeks away? 


Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving full or pie and books. After having an early lunch-dinner, I had to wait all day for some pie to cook. Seems when the time table is moved up to accommodate work schedules, pie is sacrificed. WHAT KIND OF CREATURES BODY-SNATCHED MY FAMILY?


I mean it's pie. I waited all year for a slice of pumpkin pie and no one gets between us. I had to cook my own pie as a late evening snack. By late, I mean I was eating it at 10:30pm at night. It was still Thanksgiving so perfectly acceptable, right?

In none-pie news...

I managed to get my Christmas shopping done in one day and I have never been prouder of myself. No more long lines and crazy hunts for retail parking space for me. I even went to the post office and only had to deal with the normal massive lines. Now if only I could manage to skip eating so I don't have to brave the grocery store lines until after New Years is over.

In blogging news...

I am still working on my one step at a time blog make over and behind the scenes revamp. I've changed a few things here and there, did you notice them? Ideally I'd love to switch over to wordpress and buy my own domain, but until then these changes seem to be helping things here.

I may be a little light on the posts this month. With the holidays and work, I have so much going on, and I want to get this behind the scenes prep work done in case Santa is nice to me and I get $ for my blogging goals. I have a huge log of published posts I'm working my way through right now to fix html issues. So much fun.

In book news...

I have read over 200 books and completed my Goodreads' goal. *pats self on back*

  1. Holy cow, your birthday order has me drooling. Those books all look so beautiful!! And I can't believe you've read 200 books this year. Major kudos to you. My goal was 25 and I still haven't met it, but I blame college.

    Also, PIE! You basically summed up my feelings. That's basically my favorite part of Thanksgiving lol.

    My Sunday Post!

    1. My birth month may have been a bit on the stressful/depressing side these last few years (for other reasons) so I may have gone a bit overboard trying to cheer myself up. It's too easy to add books to a digital cart. XD

      Thank you. I'm so surprised I actually made it to my modified goal. I thought I was going to have to decrease it again to not fail. There is still a month left, maybe you can do it. Hope you're doing well in school though. That definitely takes a chunk of your reading time away.

      Pie is synonymous with Thanksgiving. They practically mean the same thing: stuff your face with pie. XD

      Thank you for stopping by.

    1. Only two more books! You can do this! I originally had the same goal as you but had to change it. Turns out moving twice really takes a dent out of your reading time.

      Thank you for stopping by.
