Happy New Year Everyone!
Offline Ramblings:Well here we are, the first sunday in January. Where did 2015 go? It just flew by. I hope that you all had a wonderful New Years Eve/Day.
What did I do? Well truth be told, not a whole lot. New Years eve we opted to stay in and have a quiet night at home. It was a welcome change from such a hectic few weeks. We ordered takeout from our favourite Chinese restaurant and watched a movie. By 11:30 we were both falling asleep on the couch and decided to go to bed. So we were just dozing off as the new year was rang in. Kind of lame, I know, but thats ok. I don't mind staying in on NYE.
The next day we went out for dinner with my best friend and her husband. It was nice to finally see them. Even though we don't live too far away we have very different schedules, so we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like.

January Book Haul
This past week I brought more books into my house than I have since my summer vacation book haul. And I don't regret a thing, HA!
After learning that the Bout of Books read-a-thon was starting on Monday, January 4 I decided to stop by my library and pick up a few books.
(Click on the links to be redirected to the Goodreads description for each book)
I was browsing through my library's book sale section and I came across as hard cover copy of In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume. It was in great condition and only cost me $1.
These next two short books, I selected for the Bout-of-Books Read-a-thon.
Then yesterday (Saturday) I decided to go check out the deals at my nearest Chapters book store. I had a few gift cards given to me for Christmas and thought this would be a good time to use them.
Here is what I bought:
Open Heart, Open Mind by Clara Hughes was on sale for $10. Great deal!
Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories Volume II by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I now have the complete two book set.
The last two books I had never heard of before and found in the bargain section.
The Villa by Rosanna Ley
Secrets of the Lighthouse by Santa Montefiore
