* comment and TELL me what you have acquired for your shelves recently

Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. Waiting for Tim Hanks is still on my TBR. I have a bunch of non fiction out from the library at the moment.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  2. Gorgeous tree...and I'm curious about Waiting for Tom Hanks.

    Enjoy your week.

  3. I love looking at Christmas decorations!
    I think my husband would like to see 1917, but it seems a little too tough to watch for me.

  4. I love all the holiday decorations and lights too. Waiting for Tom Hanks looks cute!

  5. I'm not a big time Christmas fan, but I do love to see the decorations and trees around the place.

    I am thinking that this might be our last year of sending Christmas cards, simply because of the environmental and recycling impact - Plus I just can't stand the glitter all around the place!

    We often watch the documentaries which track the same group of people, at regular intervals throughout their lives. The trouble is, we are now of the age when 63up is literally just around the corner and we sit there watching wondering when we got to be that old - and do we really say those things!!!

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week :)


  6. I love driving around town and looking at the lights!

  7. A nice list of lovely things. Pretty tree pic! I want to read both of those, too.

  8. I can only sigh when I think of Christmas Cards. I can't find my box of cards plus I won't have time to get them out. :-(
    We used to take the children out to see the lights... not so much anymore.
    The RomComs look like fun.
    1917 looks like a movie I would like.
    Have a good week and Happy Reading!

  9. Love the tree photos!!

    Enjoy your books and the rest of the week.

  10. I want to watch 1917 really bad.
