With all of the Kindle deals this week, I have gone on a book buying binge, which means that after the New Year, I will be on a book buying ban.  But, really, how can I resist all of those .99 and 1.99 sale books?  My Kindle Fire was a little lean and needed more files to keep the blaze burning. I also received some awesome review books.  I have a ton of great reading on tap for 2012!  This is almost three weeks of books, so the list is a lot longer than normal.

I think I have finally gotten somewhat caught up after my jaunt out of town Thanksgiving week, so there will be more reviews again, starting next week.  Between being out of town, trying to catch up at work and get ready for end of year processing, I haven’t had as much energy as normal, but on Friday, I finally started to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Yay!  Hopefully I won’t be collapsing into an exhausted stupor before 8 PM anymore.
