--- AVR News Update ---
Hello and Happy Sunday!

On the Home Front: I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year. Thus begins 2016 where we are 0/12 complete or 0% uploaded.

Touching Nature: Rain, rain, rain...oh, look! More rain. Fuck off already! At least the temps have gone back to more normal ones for this time of year, 50s/30s.

Book News: I finished the year with 244 books read. I set my 2016 Goodreads & Booklikes goals for 250, so we'll see how that goes. I have all of January drafted and scheduled. I just need to read 1 book for a tour and 2 books for InD'tale Magazine. InD'tale's reviews are due Tues. so I'm scrambling, but I'll get them done. Most of January's reviews will be graphic novels. Sorry about that. It's what I have the most of. lol And the for the first time in a few years I've joined another challenge besides the general books-read-type. I posted my Bookish Resolutions hosted by Michelle and Laura. You can still join HERE.

Don't Touch That Dial!: Hubby & I managed a few episodes of Buffy and Angel, but that's it.

At the Flicks: Nothing until possibly February when we may see Deadpool.

Cyberspace Playground: Nope. Been too busy working on posts.


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

  1. Happy New Year!! 244 books? Wow I'm so jealous. I wish I could have read so many books. But I managed to get 141, and I'm really proud of that! :D

    1. That's an awesome number! You should be proud. *high fives*

  2. Happy new year! Here we had a lot of rain too, but also some dry days and mostly mild temperatures, although we finally had some colder days as well. You definitely got a lot of books read last year, I hope you'll reach your goal for this year :). Have a great week and enjoy your new books!

    1. Thankfully the rain has moved on. For now. But the temps did dip down into the teens at night. Brrr! I hope I reach my goal, too. I have so many I want to read! lol

  3. Happy New Year! Reading 244 books last year is amazing. Good luck with this years goal. Have a great week and enjoy your new books!

  4. OMG! I love your randomness. 244 is amazing. I ended with 169. The Jim Butcher book is on my TBR pile too. I have to finish The Dresden Files first though. Here's to a great 2016! Happy Reading.

    1. I was hoping I wouldn't be the only who found it hilarious. lol We love the Dresden Files. I'm not sure I'll have time for his new series yet. Maybe I should just wait. #bookwormdilemmas lol

  5. I just picked up that same kindle first book today. 😃 Enjouy your reads!


  6. I'll trade rain for snow, free!

    You did well with your reading goal, congrats!

    Happy new year and happy reading!

    1. I almost wish we had snow. I miss it down here, we get it so rarely.

      Thanks! :D

  7. I still need to finish the last episode of Buffy. I was a late convert fan. Since I know what happens with Spike, I'm dreading the end lol

    1. I started watching Feb of last year. And then when we finally finished our CSI:Miami watch, I convince my hubby to watch with me. :D And I know what you mean. But have you watched Angel? Because Season 5, just sayin'. ;)
