Morning meanderings is a daily meme brought to you by Sheila at One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books.  It’s a forum for me to discuss books and other things while I sip my daily allotment of caffeine.

Seriously, what happened to my life?  I have been so busy with school, NaNoWriMo, being a CF, trying to manage a semblance of a social life, and attempting to stay healthy  that I haven’t given myself much time to read or blog.  But it’s Thanksgiving vacation, which means a whole week of to blog and read to my heart’s content!  I spent the weekend fighting off a cold and reading Mercury in Retrograde (review to come later).  I have also been catching up on all your blogs.  Yes, I do love to see what you have been reading.  And there are a lot of exciting new challenges and giveaways going on, which I couldn’t help to join.  Let me share some of what I have found with you all:

In the spirit of the Holidays, I signed up for the Holiday Reading Challenge.  Not entirely sure exactly what I”m going to be reading for this, but I made up a prospective list:

  • The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman
  • Christmas Jars by Jason Wright
  • The Christmas Shoes by Donna VanLiere
  • A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Also, Nikola’s Book Blog, a blog that I have only just recently started following is hosting a giveaway contest that will fit in very will with the Jane Austen Challenge that is still looming over my head.

Three winners will win a copy of both Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.  I have heard a lot of hype about both books and would love to win them.  Wish me luck!

Speaking of giveaways and challenges, I’m hoping that as we hope into 2010 and my schedule gets a little lighter, I will be able to host my own giveaway and contest.  Stay tuned for more details in the future.  Trust me, I’m sticking around this time!
