Welcome to my weekly update for January 4, 2016!
I hope everyone had a safe, fun New Year! We took it pretty easy and just went out to eat on New Year’s Eve, watched a movie (The Gay Divorcee, an old Astaire/Rogers musical), then watched the ball drop. The rest of the weekend we mostly lounged around, although we did take down all our Christmas decorations on Saturday. I love the decorations, but I’m also glad to get my house back in order when the holiday is over.
There’s been a lot of busy end-of-the-year posting around here lately!
In case you missed it, I’ll link to my 2016 Books in Translation Reading Challenge as well. You can read 1 book and still be successful in each of the above challenges, so I hope you’ll join me!

I’m trying to decide on a nonfiction title to read. Any suggestions? I think I’m in the mood for something along the lines of narrative nonfiction of any sort.
