Quet Day

Had a quiet day. Guess I'm preparing to go back to work tomorrow. Having worked only 1 week in the last 3, it's a change for sure! But after one full week, we'll have two 4 day weeks for the holidays.

1) The Best of Me - Nicholas Sparks (hardback) 2) Wild Justice - Liz Fielding (Kindle) 3) All I Want for Christmas Is You - Lisa Mondello (Kindle) 4) The Next Always: Book One of the Inn Boons Boro Trilogy - Nora Roberts (hardback) 5) Bonnie - Iris Johansen (hardback)

7) The Litigators - John Grisham (hardback)
8) The Duggars: 20 & Counting - Michelle & Jim Bob Duggar (paperback)

Sparks, Roberts, Johansen and Grisham are some of my favorite authors, and I enjoyed all of their books. The Kindle books were either freebies or really, really cheap, but I enjoyed them too.
