November Wrap-Up (2016)

What’s happening Bookchachos!?

It is entirely possible that, while you are reading this, I am out finishing all my Christmas shopping. Something the world has never seen before and may never see again. Gaspshock and awe! Admit it. You’re a teensy bit jealous. It’s okay; I would be too.

At the moment, however, I am (sadly) watching 90210. And not even the original! I really love streaming video. I get to catch up on all the shows I missed, either while at boarding school or the years spent watching Sprout or Nickelodeon. There were at least three years of nothing but Backyardigans and Little Einsteins.

All right. Let’s wrap up!

Goodreads Reading Challenge Status: Completed!

This month I not only completed the yearly challenge, but surpassed it! Current Count: 53/50.
