AVR News Update
Hello and Happy Sunday! I have had a busy week with haircuts, dental appointments, dog nail trims, before Thanksgiving stuff, Thanksgiving stuff (and stuffing) and after Thanksgiving stuff. I didn't do my usual Friday Featured Spotlight or my Saturday Shorts. No time. It's been busy, but good. We saw Thor: The Dark World yesterday and we enjoyed it. Though I could sit and watch Chris Hemsworth just stand around for 2 hours and be happy. That Tom Hiddleston is pretty hot, too. Especially as Loki. Love long hair on him. *stares off into space* Huh? Oh, yeah. The house is almost decorated and it's looking pretty good. Smelling good, too with that Christmas tree smell. The van goes into the body shop tomorrow to replace the back hatch from where we were rear ended. I will have a rental and hopefully have the van back Thursday. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes smoothly. :)

I am officially on a Blogging Vacation. I will have some posts up, such as The Sunday Post and probably Saturday Shorts, maybe a few others sprinkled throughout December, but I am not going to be doing any tours this month and I am going to be taking it easy. I will be back full swing in January with a few new features such as Two for Tuesday that I will be alternating with my Time Turner Tuesday and possibly a Showcase Saturday (tentative day) alternating with Saturday Shorts. I may think up something else while I'm 'resting', but then again maybe not. Who knows what my brain will do? I certainly don't. *winks*

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.
Shelf Additions
From the library
This is not what my copy looks like, so this isn't the link for my actual book. There is no ISBN in the book copyrighted 1967, large print by Washington Irving and illustrated by Leonard Everett Fisher. I've searched and can't find it. I am defeated. lol

Amazon Freebies
I did click an awful lot this week, but I've been too busy to link them here. However, I will add a few that I believe are still on sale. As always, be sure to check before one-clicking!


  1. Great selection, I love the look of the Untreed Reads Fingerprints books. And bloggy breaks now and again are great to recharge. Happy reading :)

    1. They have a few lines that have uniform covers for each. Makes it easy to spot them. :)

      I definitely need the break to rest and read and draft posts for January.

      Thanks! :)

  2. Happy Sunday, and good luck with the van. That's always fun... not. We saw Thor too and liked it but didn't love it, come on by and share your thoughts if you want. I did a little review with likes and dislikes. It's fun seeing other people's thoughts on the movie.

    Anyway have a good week and hope your Dec. starts out good...

    1. Thanks! :)

      I'll swing over to read about Thor. Like books, I enjoy seeing what people like and dislike about them.

  3. An interesting mix of books. Good luck with your van and enjoy your blogging break.

    1. I did have quite the mix this week. lol Thanks! :)

  4. This definitely seems to be a busy time for a lot of people. Hope you enjoy all your books, and crossed my fingers for your van's full recovery. ;)

    1. I think this is my busiest time of year. Though I don't have a lot going on but reading until the 16th. :)

      Thanks and I hope the van's full recovery happens on Weds as promised. lol

  5. Enjoy your blogging break and your new books too.

    1. Thank you! I have a list to read during my break. I'm sure I won't get to most of them, but I'm going to try. lol

  6. Nice book haul... lots to keep you busy reading! Have a nice blogging vacation!!
