Saturday Snapshot #04: Week of December 29, 2013

It's been a rough week and a tough start to the new year everyone. I got sick and am still fighting this winter cold. I haven't been able to read for long stretches at a time because I'm either coughing, blowing my nose or nodding off. Hopefully, the antibiotics I got today from the doctor will kick in and I'll be back to normal soon. It's kind of odd I picked up The End of Illness just before getting sick. I keep wondering when the end of this illness is come!

  • Sunday: Finished The Breath of God. Review coming later in January.
  • Monday: Halfway through Season 1 of House of Cards.
  • Tuesday: Forged ahead on The End of Illness.
  • Wednesday: Celebrated the New Year by going to see Delivery Man starring Vince Vaughn.
  • Thursday: Watched the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory. OMG! What's going on with Penny and Leonard?! I also half watched/half listened to The Taste. I'm a huge fan of Top Chef and I'm always trying to find another show to live up to it. None ever do, but I do love Anthony Bourdain.
  • Friday: Nearly finished with House of Cards Season One. Thank goodness I won't have to wait long for Season Two.
  • Saturday: Kick this winter cold in the ass and go watch Nebraska at Collins Road Theatres.

Books added to my Wish List

  • Timebound by Rysa Walker
  • The Weller by Adam J. Whitlatch. This is a local author and I'm intrigued by the description of the book.
