Hello and Happy Sunday! 

I don't really have a whole lot to report this Sunday. This past week I did some reading, engaged in Battle V of Leafageddon and spent all day yesterday working on my blog. Today I will read. And read some more. And some more. :D 

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

    Week In Review

    1. We live in the woods and while I love the trees, I need to keep the lawn fairly clear of leaves or we might lose Taco, our mini pin/chihuahua mix when he goes out to potty. LOL

  7. So many books! I don't even know where to start. I see a lot I that look intriguing. Good luck with Leafaggedon! I love having lots of trees except for this time of year. Have a great week and enjoy your new books!

    1. I didn't know either. LOL I love the trees, too. Well, except for Fall and Spring. I think Spring is worse actually. Ugh! lol

  8. Haha battle V? What does that stand for? I hope you were victorious ;) looks like you have a great haul to support those reading plans! Hope you had a great Sunday and are having a great week!

    1. It was my 5th battle. I can't remember ever having to get Mighty Leaf Blower out five times! I could actually do a VI battle, but I'm going to retreat. lol

  9. "Buffy" Andrews ? There is actually someone named Buffy ?! Brings back great tv memories. I hope you finally had plenty of reading time ;)

    1. Ikr! I can't imagine naming a kid Buffy. Or even using it as a nickname. My son is watching the show and all I can think of is: Why "Buffy"? Yeesh.
