Back Home, But No Computer

Hey there, readers and lovers of books, I'm back home and safely in the place I enjoy to read, collect my books and love to watch my dvds of 'Supernatural'... however, I'm not currently on my own computer.

My computer has been in the hands of my next door neighbour who I asked to look it over and it turned into a mammoth task of trying to figure out why it won't start up again - once he told me that I was hacked! So, this post is being written on their computer while they're out and about as they offered up their internet while my computer is dismembered in my home... hmmm, sounds kinda sad to hear about that; and looks it too.

Well, I had a safe drive back up the coast in my little green car.  I do miss Brunswick Heads very much, but I got so much reading done there!  As you can see from the posts I've written, I've read all the books I had planned to - and have yet to write a review on my last audio book from the last day or so of my holidays.  But worry not, it will be written over the next day or so.

So, what did you get to read over the holidays and NYE period?  Me?  Well, it was raining at the coast for a good lot of the time, so reading was called for.  And when it wasn't raining, it was boiling hot and sticky, and too boiling to go outside.  So, I was stuck inside reading.  Not bad if you ask me.  So, do tell us all, what did you read, what did you buy?  What bookstores did you discover?  Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. Happy New Year to You!!

    I finished four books before the end of 2014.... Two were holiday themed in nature, Secret Santa by Sabrina James and Mistletoe in Manhattan by Talli Roland, and two non holiday themed reads The Velvet Choker by Selena Kitt and Jackie of All Trades by Allie Borne.

    I also made an end of the year wrap up post detailing my favorite reads and more!! I had a great year of reading in 2014 with 100 books read!! See the following link for my wrap up post for 2014: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2014/12/2014-end-of-year-reading-wrap-up-post.html

    My New Year is off to a good start!! I'm currently participating in a Bout of Books Read-A-Thon, which I think is a great way to kick off 2015 by reading and participating in reading/bookish challenges!

    Plus, I decided to participate in another book related meme on New Year's Day called The First Book of 2015 and is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. The basic idea is to post a picture of yourself reading your 1st book of 2015!! I was planning to participate in this book meme initially because I'm a bit camera shy and had never posted a picture of myself on my blog until I decided to take the plunge!! You can check out my The First Book of 2015 at the following link: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-first-book-of-2015.html

    So what are you reading in the New Year?? Which book is your first read??? What about New Year's Resolutions.... Did you make any for 2015? I have 10 bookish related resolutions for 2015 including reading 100 books this year and NOT buying anymore books for myself this year as my 'to be read' pile is out of control!

  2. Wow! You're doing so much this year! Good for you! Keep up the great work... now I'm off to your blog to check out what you've been up to! :D
