Building the Book Pile #117

Welcome to Building the Book Pile!  A Weekly meme inspired by Stacking the Shelves

Hello Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people! 

What's Happening?! 
How was your week ? Let me know in the comments.

I am lazy... I have not been reading at all :( I sit around an marathon shows on Netflix... I am a bum. But I am going to try to be better in the coming weeks - I mean I only have 2 books left to read for my Challenge this year. 

I think it is the cold and the snow, I just want to curl up, get warm, and nap...

Anywho... Work is winding down and gearing up again - I am an assistant and I am assisting in a Faculty Search, helping prepare online things for a course, doing things with accounts - the whole she-bang. BUT Friday was also the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony on campus and my departments holiday party. I will be excited when Winter break comes - 1.5 weeks paid vacation (WOOHOOO!!!).

How is your winter going so far? Any snow where you are?

Giveaways Going on Now!!
