Things I'm Loving ... Good Books!

Linking in with the adventures of MNMs for this weeks things I'm Loving! 




In an effort to complete some of my 34 goals, I just finished reading the The Kite Runner.  LOVE.  A beautifully written book by Khaled Hosseini, and as described by iTunes movies, "An epic tale of fathers and sons, of friendship and betrayal, that takes us from the final days of Afghanistan's monarchy to the atrocities of the Taliban reign." Definitely worth a read, it also crosses off my goal of reading the books on the Whitcoulls Top 100... 


What do you use to record books you've read? I used to keep a spreadsheet, but always forgot if I read books or not... I started using Good Reads, and I'm enjoying the accessibility of that so far. It doesn't seem to have a few Kiwi author's books in the files, but all and all it's a good way for me to track what I have and haven't read. Especially when I get to the second hand book sales with my pal Alicia!! ;) 

Another lovely friend came into our household this week - and I'm loving her! Evie the Elf! She is our lovely Elf on the Shelf that came to live with us this holiday season!! She also brought lots of Christmas presents from Grandma and Grandpa - guess who was negotiating if she could open some!!! ;) 


I seriously LOVE that my family members all have iPhones. It's amazing how easy they are to connect via FaceTime with, so good. Especially on days I am sick and want my mom to make me things to feel better. I think I annoyed her with FaceTime today!! (Gastro bug, seriously yuk!) I'm also reminded how days like today make me thankful for my overall good health. {Touch wood.} I help so many people daily who are very ill, and a few days of gastro is nothing. 

I'm also loving my new computer!! My old MacBook Pro crashed last week - I managed to pull 
everything off of it I needed, thankfully! So when my new one came, I set it all up and gave Miss G the old one to play with. Low and behold, it's back to life! Seriously. I tried hard to resuscitate my MacBook!! She is amazing. Loving this photo of her and with Degen on the screen. So special. 




Check out what others are loving this week and join in the fun!!
